I've seen a detailed tutorial on installing u-torrent but after i enter, last line of code, it says:

'bash: /usr/bin/utserver: No such file or directory'

syntax; utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/

I think it is best to use transmission if you intended to download only. However here - is a brief tutorial. I think you missed the step while creating hard link sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/utserver /usr/bin/utserver – Web-E Jul 7 '12 at 12:43
give us the Tutorial link and terminal code in paste bin . Thank you . – Raja Jul 7 '12 at 12:43
Web-E; Thank you for your response.I tried those steps again and at the line which you said that i missed it..It said 'ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/bin/utserver': File exists'. And after entering the final syntax it ended up showing the same error which i posted above. Hope you understood what i said,thank you – srujan Jul 7 '12 at 12:58
His problem is he downloaded the 32-bit version but doesn't have ia32-libs (see answer) – izx Jul 7 '12 at 15:43

You must install 32-bit compatibility libraries or use the native 64-bit uTorrent Server

  • You are using 64-bit Ubuntu
  • You downloaded the 32-bit version of utserver, which requires the ia32-libs compatibility package on 64-bit Ubuntu (or you get the cryptic file not found error)
    • You can fix this problem with sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
  • Better yet, get the native 64-bit version of uTorrent Server:
    • wget
    • After that you will need to install libssl v0.9.8 to get it work, with sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8
