You should just run

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rtorrent

from the console.

To use rtorrent in Ubuntu 12.04, simply install the rtorrent Install rtorrent package in the Software Center.

(However, if you have a command-line only system without the Software Center, you should use this way. You may want to accept that answer.)
