    ^ Definitely. I wouldn't mess around with Wine and Windows clients too much unless you have to.

    Try a native client. And in my opinion Deluge is the best native client. KTorrent is also pretty good. So is Transmission, but the gui is lacking.

    I loved it

    Also try rtorrent

    utorrent ran just as good as it did on windows.

    I had a similar issue - it ended up that my users folder within .wine never got created for some reason. I had another user id working already on the system though, so I just copied the /home/.wine/users folder underneath the other user ids /home/.wine folder

    After installing wine in terminal all you have to do is download utorrent from their website and wine will automatically install the exe file.

    Deluge used to have limited options but the newer versions have much the same options that utorrent have. I can't find a thing I miss from utorrent in deluge.

    Thats what you're went to do with WINE .

    Check the db to find out if an app has compatibility issues.
