I am new to Ubuntu and I have downloaded version 17.10. Please tell me how to get the uTorrent or is there any other way I can use to download torrents?

  • There's many torrent clients in the repository / software center, e.g. qBittorrent or Deluge. You can also install uTorrent in WINE, but I'd recommended trying out one of the native options first. – JonasCz Jan 3 '18 at 14:15

    Are you really using a [server], i.e. a distribution without GUI? In other words, do you need a command line torrent client? – Melebius Jan 3 '18 at 14:45

    @galoget -- the latest utorrent for linux is 5 years old. He's better off with qbittorrent – ravery Jan 3 '18 at 14:49
  • @ravery I agree with you, I was just answering to the question itself, of how to get utorrent, just in case he wants the old program. – galoget Jan 3 '18 at 14:52
  • @galoget -- however the linux version is a server, unlike the windows version which is a GUI client. Thus qbittorrent is most like the Windows uTorrent – ravery Jan 3 '18 at 14:55

qbittorrent is in the universe repo.

sudo add-apt-repository universe

Then install qbittorrent:

sudo apt-get install qbittorrent

Go to the software-center and install transmission , it`s a bittorrent manager .

  • Transmission is a valid answer, why the downvote? – Melebius Jan 3 '18 at 14:48
  • Transmission is already included with many flavors of Ubuntu - no need to install it. See apt rdepends transmission-gtk – user535733 Jan 3 '18 at 16:54
  • Yep thats true , weird thing that is not installed – Mat RICARDO Jan 3 '18 at 16:57
