Ubuntu comes with Transmission.
You can also use deluge which a lot of people like.
To get Deluge just use:
sudo apt-get install deluge
I also recommend using a VPN to keep your IP safe/hidden. Very big deal these days.
Private Internet Access is my favorite, it costs a few bucks a month but it ...
You can change the default handler for magnet links by editing the file .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list. Add the association to the two sections in the file like this (leaving other entries in those sections intact):
The watch command can be used to run a program periodically and show the output.
I don't have transmission installed so I can't test this, but something like
watch --interval 5 'transmission-remote -n 'user:pwd' -l'
should do what you want.
More information on watch by typing man watch or here
If you want to use torrent to transmission, you have to allow remote access in transmission under preferences/remote.
If you want to open magnet links in transmission by clicking on them, you need to patch the /usr/bin/xdg-open script, here's mine for reference.
The added lines are 311 and 490-493.
There is no option to constantly monitor the status of transmission-daemon using transmission-cli, it's just not a tool made for that.
transmission-remote-cli on the other hand works very well for that. Do you have a specific reason to not install it?
sudo apt-get install transmission-remote-cli
You would be able to connect to the daemon simply by running:...
By default Xenial Xerus 16.04 LTS carries quite an aged version of Transmission. There is an outside chance that a newer version may come through Ubuntu Backports but for the moment there is a very solid and stable PPA that carries the most recent version.
To add this PPA and then install the very latest version (2.9.2) run the following commands in a ...
When you click the magnet link and Deluge opens, does it actually add the torrent to the queue?
I currently have the issue where clicking a magnet link will open Deluge but will not add the torrent.
As a workaround, you should be able to right click on the magnet link and copy the link address, then in Deluge go to File > Add Torrent > URL
Ubuntu comes with Transmission, a fairly simple torrent client. But I prefer Deluge as it is more feature-rich.
You can install software from the Software Center app (by Ubuntu) or just Software (by Gnome). Just open one of these, search for the app and click install.
If you have installed transmission-gtk then the solution is easy.
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/magnet/command '/usr/bin/transmission-gtk %s' --type String
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/magnet/enabled --type Boolean true
The first one adds transmission-gtk as handler for magnet:// links the second enable it.
Since chrome/ium uses ...
Firstly - stop shutting down with root. Use dbus.
Next, put something in your script that detects running torrents. Here is a little something that uses trasmission-remote to count the number of torrents running that aren't "Done":
transmission-remote --list | sed '1d;$d' | grep -v Done | wc -l
To build that into your script:
From this question
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 by gvfs-open, which doesn't use gconf settings. Rather, gvfs-open looks at the ".desktop" files
So here some general instruction, they should work for every client ( just wisely change tixati with what ...
I am leaving this in order to follow up the original question which is asking to run a specific php script. But a workaround is provided in the New Recipe section in order to solve the main problem.

That seems to be a compiling/linking bug with flush: that undefined symbol is provided by libtorrent-rasterbar6, which seems to be installed.
So you can try to reinstall libtorrent-rasterbar6 and see if you get anything different:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libtorrent-rasterbar6
Also, there is a PPA that seems to be maintained by the creator of ...
There you have it then: you must first mount that drive and only then open your torrent client. To be sure the drive is mounted you can simply navigate there with your file browser.
You might also want to set that drive to mount automatically at startup:

Faced the same Problem. The solutions given about requires lots of steps and I guess will solve the problem permanently. A temporary fix that worked for me is to do the following steps.
When computer is restarted, the error message appears.
Open the qBittorrent
Right click on the file you were downloading click on set location

This seems to be an old bug in qBittorrent client which is not yet marked as fixed. Look at Automated download from RSS problematic and here
So here are a couple of routes you could try to get those torrents:
1. Use KTorrent with the Syndication plugin. You can define filters ( .LOL.HDTV ) and how ofter you want to refresh the rss (like qBittorrent.) And ...
You should be able to double-click the icon. Then, the Archive manager will open. In order to extract the actual movie, it will probably ask you for a password. The Readme file will then tell you that in order to get that password, you will need to visit a particular web site, fill in a questionnaire etc. etc. It is a scam, not worth your time.
With the new release of 16.10, I had few problems installing qbittorrent from the Ubuntu Software center as well as from the .tar.gz installation file obtained from original website of qbittorrent. However I got a way to compile it locally in my system, though it showed some warnings, eventually, it happened to be working properly.
First try installing it ...
This is entirely feasible. Some suggestions to enhance the security of this setup:
The firewall in the router is your main defense against attacks from Internet. You would port-forward just one port (the torrents protocol can run on any port) towards your RPi and run a torrents client on that port.
SSH is enabled by default, but the router's firewall will ...
I agree with CelticWarrior's comment: it would be healthy to use KTorrent (full of features) or Transmission (simple interface).
In any case, to actually get your download started you probably need to use the menu: File -> Open and then find the .torrent file you downloaded.
Taken from: MountingWindowsPartitions
If you require one or more of your Windows partitions mounted automatically during bootup, it is necessary to add one line to the file /etc/fstab for each partition that is to be mounted. Some reasons for mounting partitions by means of /etc/fstab, rather than relying on the file manager, include:
I have found this question on Ask Ubuntu https://askubuntu.com/a/792107/17397 and this is the answer from the Deluge developer: "for security SSLv3 was disabled so now only uses TLS in later versions of Deluge (also TLS forced in openssl) and likely the reason for not connecting." [Cas]
It seems newer version of daemon is backward compatible with older ...
There is an application which is shipped by default in Ubuntu called transmission
You can open transmission by searching for it from the Dash(the top left Ubuntu logo). just click that logo and start writing transmission
So just open it locate the .torrent file and make some configuration like speed ,time ,etc... and transmission will take care of rest.
Non answer here, but I cant add a comment yet so adding this as an [non] answer.
For Chrome, it seems to run "xdg-open" when a magnet link is clicked with the magnet URL passed in as the $1 to the command. This does successfully trigger Deluge to open, but it fails to actually add the torrent.
It used to work just fine for me in 14.04 and I just recently ...
