I've been an Ubuntu user for a little while, and everything has been going great until I installed Deluge. I'd noticed some strange behaviour, so I uninstalled it, trying a bunch of different terminal commands. Now I can't choose a a different torrent client like Transmission because Deluge is the only program still on the list. How can I completely rid myself of Deluge?

It would be helpful if you would list the commands you have tried. sudo apt-get purge deluge comes to mind. – Seth Dec 14 '12 at 16:51
It would also be helpful if you would tell us how exactly you have installed it: using the software center? Manually downloading something? Using a command in the terminal? Something else? – Andrea Corbellini Dec 14 '12 at 17:12

Run this in a terminal

sudo apt-get purge deluge
