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 ...

For 12.04 and above In 12.04 and 13.04, 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

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Transmission is the Bittorrent client installed by default. You can remove this if you wish and the following command should do the job: sudo apt-get remove transmission-common However... As Luis points out in the comments, it sounds like you never actually started the download. You downloaded a torrent file (which needs to be loaded into a torrent ...

I don't think there's a plugin for Deluge, but flexget is an RSS torrent downloader that is very easy to configure, extremely flexible and has tight integration to Deluge. I use flexget+Deluge and it works fine. Take a look at this for details on Deluge integration

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Just to give at attempt at answering my own question I did some research and came up with this. Transmission Transmission is the default BitTorrent client of Ubuntu and does favourably. Customer reviews in the software centre give it a 4/5 rating with those less than satisfied with it citing the following as limitations/problems: "Very basic..." ~ ...

You don't need to install any additional software to change the default program to open a specific archive type. Just open the file manager Nautilus and right click the file. Open Properties and go to the Open with tab. There you choose the default program.

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?

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.

Yes. All Ubuntu releases are distributed via bittorrent for those who prefer that to traditional direct downloads. Torrent release links are listed on the Alternative Downloads page of the main Ubuntu site.

Warning: Under no circumstances is it safe to use BitTorrent and Tor together. As an alternative, a VPN will be "safe" if you trust the VPN (in many countries, ISP's are required to log while VPN's are not), or you could use an anonymising network that was designed for file-sharing, such as I2P. Proceed at your own risk. How Tor-Browser uses Transmission ...

I am sure that flexget is the thing you are looking for. I'm using this with Ubuntu (12.04 10.04) together with transmission. And as soon the torrent is available it will add it to transmission. They say its trivial to set up, but no it ain't. But as soon you succeed in configure it (only one file) it works like a charm for weeks and weeks (years...). ...
