Thread: uTorrent in Linux. (Debian)

  1. #1

    Surprised/Amazed

    Things to be installed.
    1. Wine
    2. Desktop
    3. VNC
    4. utorrent

    • First, add repository for Wine:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    • Add the following lines at the end of this file
    # Repository for wine
    deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
    deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
    • Save the edited file
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install wine
    2. Next, we install the desktop.
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

    since its really not a good idea to have a root user session continuously open, i HIGHLY suggest making a new user and using their desktop to use. This way, if it happens that you do managed to have someone get into the vnc session, they cant do anything

    useradd <username> <password>
    cd /home/<username>
    mkdir Desktop
    chmod 777 Desktop

    Next we want to allow additional repositories to install vnc server.

    This site is well trusted and im sure most of you are familiar with it.
    http://easylinux.info/wiki/Ubuntu#Ho...a_repositories

    Next, Install vncserver

    apt-get install vnc4server

    Next, logout of root and login to the other account you made.
    After loggin in, vnc4server -geometrxy 1024x768 -depth 24

    This will prompt you to create a password:

    Password:
    Verify:


    Now you can type "vnc4server -geometry 1024x768" without quotes into terminal and now you can login using vnc client.
    To do this, use your server's Ip address and the vnc's session id to login.


    Here is an example:
    127.0.0.1:1



    After doing so, you will be prompted to put in the password you put in earlier for vnc.


    Now, start Firefox, goto the utorrent website and download utorrent. start up a new terminal, and just wine where u saved utorrent. For the tutorial sake, we'll say we saved utorrent.exe to the desktop. Start-up a terminial session and cd your way to Desktop. then wine utorrent.exe and voila you got utorrent running in linux



    Hope this helps some of you fellow uploaders out there.

    Comments are welcomed.

    this seems a bit odd to me. why would you need vnc to run utorrent and if your gonna be using it as a remote seed box then vnc is gonna run like shit since your gonna be uploading so much.

    I'm on ubuntu, and I like utorrent.. So I might do this, I use azureus at the moment and it isn't very good IMO.

    Try kTorrent. It aims to be a lot like uTorrent I think. Not as many features but you don't have to go through wine and you still go with the open source stuff

    ..why use utorrent on a seed box? There is an excellent cli/ncurses client called rTorrent, (you do not need X and VNC running). If you want a GUI try torrentflux, at least it runs natively....
    Thanks for the Howto though.

    I agree, kTorrent is excellent, and it comes with peerguardian/safepeer type protection already running. I use it exclusively on my linux box at home.

    When you download the file completed ktorrent seed very bad, very few upload. Better azureus, bittornado...
