Install on Ubuntu

Ubuntu offers the previous 1.3.5 version and I don’t know when the official repositories are going to be updated to the latest Deluge. To get 1.3.6 you will have to add the Deluge team repository at your own risk. To do this type the following commands on a terminal:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install deluge

    I’m wondering, how is Deluge better/different from Qbittorrent?

    • Bill_Toulas

      I’ve never used Qbittorrent, but an obvious difference is the toolkit these two applications use. Deluge uses GTK while Qbittorent uses QT

    • Brandon Watkins

      deluge’s most unique feature compared to qbittorrent is its client/server/thinclient functionality. You can run the deluge daemon on one computer, and every other computer can connect to the daemon as a client using the native GTK+ UI, its pretty cool.

    I’m using transmission because it’s simple and clean but I will give deluge a try.
