    END OF THE BIG IMPORTANT EDIT

    After looking for and trying all (native+gtk) bittorrent clients I could find (and get to compile), I found tribler (http://www.tribler.org/) witch seems to do all I need from it, and , well, I like it better than the others.
    It seems to do more than just bittorrent, something about social sharing I don't understand much (maybe when I'll try this more I'll understand).
    from the website
    With Tribler, we are creating software for video file sharing that has a basic understanding of human friendships, of user tastes in content, and of Internet connectivity between users. Currently, Tribler is not production-level software yet, but we do have a fully functional proof-of-concept.
    [...]
    Features that we are adding include:
    * Amazon-like recommendations to get interesting files
    * Doubling the download speed by using the upload capacity of friends
    * Real-time P2P file sharing with P2P video streaming
    * Showing the locations of other downloaders of the same content with city-level accuracy on a world map
    Anyway, take a look at the official page, they have a lot of information there.

    And, of course, I made a package for it (that's why I started this thread) it can be downloaded here:
    EDIT
    The older version doesn't work anymore. ere's the lastest version, use this one instead. http://membres.lycos.fr/bou3ou/packa...untu3_i386.deb
    /EDIT

    And if you want to use the web interface, you must configure it to use the loopback interface (it crashed on me when I made automatic) and access it using something like phpABC witch can be found here :
    http://www.swiftlytilting.com/phpabc/
    just put it in your webserver and go there and fill the informations you configured the server with.

    well that's it ..

    Sorry but the .deb doesn't work and their repos don't seem to be working correctly, it looks really nice on the screenshots though
    I'd like to try it

    Edit: oh ok, it's just that lycos doesn't support direct linking, here's a mirror that supports direct linking . :

    thanx for the mirror

    I made a little mistake in the link adress I think that's what caused the error (but direct linking works for me ...)

    anyway I corrected everything now

    Re: Tribler : the best bittorrent client for linux ?

    Well this is my first ever mention on a ubuntu forum and I am doing this to hopefully help some other newbies like me.
    I got so wound up with windows problems over and over I finally took the plunge to Ubuntu 2 weeks ago. I can only say how pleased, well overjoyed I am that I made the decision to. It seemed a little daunting and complicated to start with but I soon got the hang of it and it kicks you know what over windows!
    Back to what the forum is about. I have spent so much time with torrents in the last couple of years and on windows there was no question for me that Utorrent was by far the best. To find initially I couldn't use it on Ubuntu was a real dissapointment so I tried many clients including Ktorrent, Rtorrent, Deluge, Azureus, bittornado and qbittorrent. I don't have the worlds best download speed the differences between them was often vast.
    I then found I could use Utorrent under Wine which as a Newbie was awkward at first but I figured it out. It seemed good at first but the speeds were very up and down. I went back to Deluge and found it was so slow but most stable.
    I still wasn't happy so I did some further research and there seemed to be a lot of mention for Transmission although I couldn't find an easy download for it. I did finally find one and what can I say. Well finally I have found a torrent that gets me over 200kbs constant again and doesn't take all my resources to do so.
    My million percent recommendation to anyone new is transmission, it pickss up very quickly and holds a very solid and constant full throttle speed. The link I found for download is on this page:

    I hope this will help someone who struggled as much as I did.

    Thanks

    Lee
