    hello;
    im somewhat of a noob to Linux.
    recently i got rtorrent and libtorrent compiled from source, and everything runs great...
    however rtorrent would be 10x nicer if it had a gui/front-end.
    i did some research and found that wtorrent is the best looking and feature rich gui, so id like to install it.
    see it here: http://www.wtorrent-project.org/trac/
    but i have had zero luck so-far.
    could someone aid in a user friendly guide for installing it on ubuntu 8.04 ?
    (yes i know they have install instructions, but they are almost a different language to me

    thanks,
    eric

    Yeah screen is nice, however, I have experienced some lag with screen when I used it in the past. ( Might be just me though. )

    Has always works flawlessly for me.
    Use ctrl+n to more screens, don't just start multiple instances.
