The BitTorrent protocol is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used for distributing large amounts of data. The big file is broken down into smaller parts and it automatically fetches parts from multiple hosts at once. It also shares the parts you've already downloaded with others, so that everybody shares and benefits. The technology itself is perfectly ...
Deluge It is controllable by GUI, Web, and Console. Install Deluge. To setup remote access to a deluge server see the Thinclient guide. deluge-console deluge-gtk deluge-web (http://localhost:8112)

The answer is in fact a bug in deluge packaging (or, perhaps deluge is the same & everything else changed around it... depends on your perspective, I guess.) See the forum topic here for the details. Basically, setting up xdg-open's config via gconf-editor didn't do anything to resolve the issue, since as of Natty the file-open functionality is handled ...
For 12.04 In 12.04, deluge does included x-scheme-handler/magnet=deluge.desktop; in the desktop file. In my case, transmission was still opening magnet links. I had to tell gvfs-open to prefer deluge with: gvfs-mime --set x-scheme-handler/magnet deluge.desktop
How about ctorrent? sudo apt-get install ctorrent ctorrent -t -u "http://tracker.example.com:6969/announce" -s example.torrent file_or_dir_to_upload It's also a very good client.
After searching a bit I came across RatioMaster.NET 0.42 that claims to work under Linux with mono 2.6.3 and hardcoded support for torrent clients uTorrent, BitComet, Azureus, ABC, BitLord, BTuga, BitTornado, Burst, BitTyrant, BitSpirit. So this does not include transmission or deluge but some of these do work native under Linux or work with wine. Did not ...
The problem, in your case, is probably not the data rate but the number of connections. Many internet gateways can't handle many connections at the same time. You can Limit your maximum amount of simultaneous connections in the Transmission preferences like so: Try to keep these values very low at first. 5/10 is a good starting point. And increase them ...
All downloads, including torrents, can be found here. I've added links to the most downloaded images: Desktop: 32-bit, 64-bit, 64bit+Mac. Server: 32-bit, 64-bit, 64bit+Mac.
qBittorrent qBittorrent developers claim to be producing a "free" alternative to uTorrent. One of their features is Sequential downloading (aka "Download in order") However, this feature is with a health warning: Attempts to download the selected torrents in sequential order. Torrent pieces are usually downloaded in an optimal order which ...
as of firefox 3.6 network.protocol-handler.external.* seems to no longer work in about:config network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet -> false and 'reset' all other values to do with magnet. once you click a magnet link you will be prompted to choose an application, navigate to and select /usr/bin/deluge You might also try $ gconftool-2 -t string -s ...
OpenVPN should be transparent to the application, so it should work regardless of which client you choose. Personally I use transmission(-daemon). It has a well written interface with both web, stateless command line and ncurses command line interfaces. It is also very easy to set up. It works great for me at least ;)
Transmission (in Ubuntu Desktop, transmission-gtk is the default bittorrent client) can also be used to create torrents. On the command-line, transmissioncli (installed by the transmission-cli package) can be used to create torrents. transmissioncli --help should tell you what options you need to use. In 2.1x and later versions of transmission, that part ...
Set your upload to 50% of your max upload bandwidth. You can have the download unlimited or limited. I set my download to 90% of max. I have found with bandwidth saturating programs (Torrents), if the upload gets to > 75% of your max outbound limit, it severely hobbles all the data transfers on the system (Browsing). TCP/IP is a two way street, the packet ...
Possible, maybe, chaotic, very. Please have a look at the debian wiki about this and the possible issues that you will have using BT as a download source for your updates. There is a reason why when looking in google for "apt torrent good setup" or "working perfect" returns 0 good results will all the keywords.
MythTV is able to shut down computer when it's no longer in use and wake it up a few minutes before the next recording starts. It does it by using ACPI functions to set wakeup time before shutting down. There is an extensive howto on configuring this, which basically boils down to: First verify that your Linux kernel is 2.6.22 or newer and the HWclock ...
Copy the folder located at /home/your-user-name/.config/transmission/ and place it at the same path location on your new installation. Simplest way would be to have an Ubuntu One account and mark that folder as a Cloud Folder, syncing the configuration across installations.
Canonical provides detailed instructions on how to use BitTorrent as well as how to obtain their official torrents for their ISO images here. Below is a brief summary on how to obtain a copy of those torrents to download. Where should I go to download an Ubuntu torrent? The torrent files needed for downloading an Ubuntu ISO are made available by Canonical ...
According to the user guide (pdf), there is (at least for now) no native GUI for Linux. The graphical interface for Linux is browser-based, and can be accessed at http://localhost:8888/gui/.
Yes. I use ctorrent as my primary client. Usually from within tmux. sudo apt-get install ctorrent
It hasn't made it's way into the Official Natty repos yet, because for the release, they need to have things stable. I believe that Transmission was part of the Debian Import Freeze, however I'm not 100% sure on that. It could have been part of the Feature Freeze back in February, but again, I'm not sure. Above info is found in the Natty Release Schedule ...
Transmission can do it: $ ./transmission-create --help Usage: transmission-create [options] <file|directory> Options: -h --help Display this help page and exit -p --private Allow this torrent to only be used with the specified tracker(s) -o --outfile <file> Save the generated .torrent to this filename -c --comment ...
Having that *.torrent file in desktop.Open your ktorrent,click File>>Open, browse to your desktop then click open that *.torrent file you just downloaded through firefox. Observe few seconds while your ktorrent client is greeting the "handshakes" with other peers, then you will notice that download begins.
Deluge has a daemon too. I haven't tried deluge since I started using transmission, and I've never tried deluge's daemon, but I know it has one. You might have to install the daemon (deluged) separately. It may be as easy as putting the following line in /etc/rc.local: sudo -u yourusername deluged but read the manual page for deluged first (man deluged). ...
First install qBittorrent from the software center. Download the torrent using qBittorrent and right click and select "Download in sequential order". Wait for a while and then click preview file.
Usually torrents are the best way, as mirrors always see a huge bandwidth spike on release day. Another good way to have an up to date system on release day is install the release candidate and allow it to update on its own. The servers will be less congested, and the differences will be minimal. Of course, torrenting allows you to give back to the ...
Yes, no matter where you download it (so long as it's an official source) the iso will be the same. You can check the hash to make sure the download is correct: Where to find the md5sums of Ubuntu ISO images? How to verify that the ISO I downloaded is bootable before I burn it?
As the comment above suggested, you will need Traffic Shaping. One of the most known program is Wonder Shaper. However I would recommend Trickle, because this software is more userfriendly. Trickle runs in userspace and uses LD_PRELOAD to inject some own networking libraries. You can install it using apt-get install trickle (or any other tool you like). ...
For a one-time shutdown you can use shutdown -h 02:00 To schedule it you can use cron. There are some GUIs for it like gnome-schedule. But to start machine on schedule you have to look at BIOS/UEFI settings. Update: check the answers about MythTV and Wake on Plan below to schedule startup.
