I tried to install utorrent by following the instructions available at http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/01/install-utorrent-in-ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-ocelot/ but when I got to the step of typing:

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

into terminal I received the output:

and then after a day of it stuck at this point it still hadn't installed the utorrent server.

I am using 12.10 i386 on a Dell Vostro 3500 laptop if any further details are required.

have you tried running it with elevated permissions? ie sudo or gksudo –  Ringtail Dec 3 '12 at 3:39
    
No, thanks, I am trying it now. Will tell ya in a few hours if it works. –  Brenton Horne Dec 3 '12 at 3:53
    
@RickGreen continuously receive the error: Failed file save: /opt/utorrent-server-v3.0/resume.dat.new Unable to save the resume file. Another program might have the file open, or the disk is full. –  Brenton Horne Dec 3 '12 at 4:46
    
Sounds like you need to configure utorrent to save to your ~/home/"some_folder other than /opt. This again would be a permissions issue as /opt is a ROOT folder and should not be used for read-write options. Suggest you run sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/ again then retry. –  Ringtail Dec 3 '12 at 5:19
    
@RickGreen Retried after running that code in terminal and I received the same error. –  Brenton Horne Dec 3 '12 at 5:42

I also had the same problem. The missing files got copied to my home folder instead of the opt folder. Just check your home folder, copy the missing files and paste them in the opt folder using Nautilus or whatever suits you.
