I was trying to download a newly released movie on my Ubuntu 11.10.
Obviously torrent magnet link is the one of the easiest way to download it.
Once I began to start my download the magnet opened with the “Transmission” application.
However it seemed not to satisfy me as the depth of detail on uTorrent is much more than on transmission.
So i went on and installed uTorrent.
If you are too looking to install uTorrent here is the procedure to install it.
change the directory to downloads
Install the package with
Now extract the file to /opt directory
sudo tar xvzf utorrent-server-3.0-25053.tar.gz -C /opt
Changing the permission to on uTorrent server
sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/
Once you have done this next step is to link the uTorrent server with/usr/bin
sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/utserver /usr/bin/utserver
To start the uTorrent run
utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/
an then open your Firefox browser and type
If you get libssl.so error while running the utserver command then install the following package with
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386
once you have done this try the installation from the beginning.
Thus you have your uTorrent ready.
