I want to run deluge in tty3,4,5 . but when I type it there is, No display warning. Then I give top and there is no pid on deluge that is deluge is not running. How do I run it from CLI so that it keeps downloading the torrents?


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:

    Don't install deluge!!! just apt install deluged deluge-console – rubo77 Nov 24 '19 at 19:39

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

    everything is great, except you don't need to install deluge, just deluged and deluge-console – scottlittle Dec 14 '19 at 6:00
