How do I install utorrent? I have downloaded the tarball from here, extracted it to /home/brentonhorne/utorrent-server-v3_0 and run:

cd /home/brentonhorne/utorrent-server-v3_0
./utserver

Which takes me to:

brentonhorne@brentonhorne-Vostro-3500:~$ cd '/home/brentonhorne/utorrent-server-v3_0' 
brentonhorne@brentonhorne-Vostro-3500:~/utorrent-server-v3_0$ ./utserver
server started - using locale en_AU.UTF-8
Using locale en_AU.UTF-8
File not found during integrity check: /home/brentonhorne/utorrent-server-v3_0/settings.dat

File not found during integrity check: .//rss.dat.new
File not found during integrity check: .//rss.dat.old
File not found during integrity check: .//resume.dat
IPv6 is installed
File not found during integrity check: .//resume.dat.new
File not found during integrity check: .//resume.dat.old

At which point I get stuck and it stays at this step way for days. I am running 12.10.

After I ran

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

I received the output:

server started - using locale en_AU.UTF-8
Using locale en_AU.UTF-8
total physical memory -1 max disk cache 33554432
Loaded ipfilter.dat (0 entries)
IPv6 is installed

At which point it froze just as it did with the commands listed earlier.

I know this doesn't related to your problem in no way, but try Deluge Torrent client! It's very similar to Utorrent and easy to run. –  Kamerom Feb 9 '13 at 23:40
    
I use Vuze and it gets the job done. I've used deluge and I wasn't too impressed, I prefer its relative QBittorrent but Vuze is great too. I want to have utorrent at my disposal, however. Thanks, anyway. –  Brenton Horne Feb 9 '13 at 23:42

You could find this useful How to install utorrent step by step? . But from my experience, Deluge is very good alternative to uTorrent, maybe even better.

[Edit] I found out that you can simply ignore these warnings, go to http://127.0.0.1:8080/gui/ in your browser and put admin as username and left the password blank.

I've seen that page and it didn't help me because it leads me to the same/similar errors as I received and documented above. –  Brenton Horne Feb 14 '13 at 10:56
    
What I find is, that probably you can ignore these and just try to run Web GUI forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=104672 –  tikend Feb 14 '13 at 11:12
    
That worked! Now if you write in your answer to open up localhost:8080/gui in your web browser and type "admin" for username and leave the password field blank I will accept your answer and give you the bounty. –  Brenton Horne Feb 14 '13 at 11:18
    
Sorry I gotta wait 23 hrs to reward this bounty... I will when I can –  Brenton Horne Feb 14 '13 at 11:24
    
No problem, glad to help. –  tikend Feb 14 '13 at 11:38
