There is Transmission, which is a GUI application or rtorrent for the command line.

There are a number of really good bit torrent clients for Ubuntu out there. Here we intend feature a collection of 5 really good bit torrent clients for Ubuntu which we think are among the best.

Deluge Bit Torrent Client
Deluge is among my favorite bit torrent clients for Ubuntu. It is fast, slick and packed with all sorts of functionalities. Deluge is not available in Ubuntu by default, but its in the repositories. enter image description here To install sudo apt-get install deluge

Now, if you want to install the latest bleeding edge version of Deluge instead, you need to do the following in Terminal. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install deluge

Transmission Bit Torrent Client
As you all should know already, Transmission is the default bit torrent client in Ubuntu for a long time now. Transmission is a nice mix of simplicity and functionality. And it is my second favorite bit torrent client(after Deluge). It incorporates all the basic features you would expect from a torrent client. enter image description here

To install sudo apt-get install transmission

Transmission is available by default in Ubuntu. But if you want to install the latest bleeding edge version of browser in Ubuntu, you need to do the following in Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

qBittorrent Bit Torrent Client
The qBittorrent project aims to provide a Free Software alternative to µtorrent. Additionally, qBittorrent runs and provides the same features on all major platforms including Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Like the ones we featured before, qBittorrent is also available in Ubuntu repositories by default. enter image description here To install sudo apt-get install qbittorrent

Now, if you want to install the latest bleeding edge(and unstable) version of qBittorrent instead, you need to do the following in Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hydr0g3n/qbittorrent-unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qbittorrent

KTorrent Bit Torrent Client
This is not really a tailor made bit torrent client for Ubuntu GNOME. KTorrent is a KDE application and it looks complete out of place in a GNOME desktop. But apart from that, from a functionality point of view, KTorrent is a more than adequate torrent client of Ubuntu. enter image description here

To install sudo apt-get install ktorrent

You can install latest version under development version of KTorrent instead via Kubuntu backports PPA(though I haven't tried it myself).

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ktorrent

Vuze Bit Torrent Client Vuze bit torrent client is also a widely used alternative among Ubuntu users. Though I have never really preferred it over the likes of Deluge or Transmission, I have noticed elsewhere that a lot of Linux users actually prefer Vuze(previously called Azureus). enter image description here

To install sudo apt-get install vuze

I think the answer you're looking for is:

/usr/share/applications/transmission-gtk.desktop

You can also try:

/usr/bin/transmission-gtk

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jacob/comm
