The version in the universe (precise) repo appears to be 2.51. If you want a newer version than that then you can add the Transmission PPA repository and you should be able to get the 2.60 build.

See this page,
https://launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa

then the normal,

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

should show an update you can confirm.

An alternative can be found on the Ubuntu Community Wiki:

CompilingTransmission
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingTransmission

Just another way of doing it :).

sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found???

This happen to me when try to add

Like BkkBonanza (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=550406) said :

See this page,
https://launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa (https://launchpad.net/%7Etransmissionbt/+archive/ppa)


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa

then the normal,


apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

should show an update you can confirm.


and I fix the add-apt-repository command:


sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

Also, I don't think it is usual, in Ubuntu, for people to install software using this command. here are two commands I use most in the terminal. The first lists available packages and the second installs them. For instance:



sudo apt-cache search java
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre

If you do not have install transmission then

sudo apt-get install transmission && sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon




killall -HUP transmission-daemon


OK now let's edit the settings (to your liking) and don't forget to save (CTRL+X Y)


cd ~
nano .config/transmission-daemon/settings.json



And finally re-run transmission-daemon. It only needs to be run once and then you can access the web interface on the port you setup.


transmission-daemon
