Have you started deluged (the deluge daemon) as a service? The command for running the client in CLI is deluge-console.

Here are some guides:

thanx... deluge-console did help/ – Tamim Ad Dari Jul 1 '13 at 18:52

This will install it, set up the daemon, and connect to its console:

sudo apt-get install deluge deluged deluge-console



You can then add torrents like:

add -p /user/Downloads torrent_magnet_link
