i got as far as 'make' and all was going well until....

Why do you want to downgrade in the first place?

because particular versions are approved by particular sites

sudo apt-get remove --purge ktorrent and then see if you can fin a deb or version specific edition of it in the repo.

I had the same issue and in the end I switched to qbittorent. You should try it as I find it to download torrents and magnets much faster. It really is like μtorrent but for linux.

Thanks, qbittorrent looks great, unfortunately it's not an approved client for this particular site...

i'll keep fiddling with ktorrent and see what happens!
