transmission-gtk | Failed to register: Timeout was reached

Transmission BitTorrent client fails to start

When Transmission crashes (e.g. forced quit after a “not responding”), it may refuse to start with the following error message:

$ transmission-gtk 
Failed to register: Timeout was reached

The solution is to delete the settings file:

$ rm ~/.config/transmission/settings.json

If this doesn’t resolve the problem, remove transmission’s whole config directory:

$ rm -r ~/.config/transmission
