    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

    Thanks this is working well, I've been looking for an alternative for Azureus for a while.

    Yes I think it's much better from Azureus, if you want to use a lightweight bittorent app; and the idea of social sharing of files is good so you get two things in one with this great app!
