    Please close all uTorrent processes and try again.

    Re: cannot run utorrent.exe

    I haven't tried uTorrent on ubuntu yet (have it on WIn 7 starter), but I may be able to help you. Try to go into the "task manager" (forgot what it is in ubuntu) and find the uTorrent thing. Stop the service and try it again. I have done this for another program and it worked.
    Hope it helped and Happy New Year,

    Qbittorrent is the best for Ubuntu imo.
    Just hand me my pitchfork and torch.

    I have to vote for Deluge, It has much more user control than say, Transmission. and the included blocklist plugin is very good, better even than uTorrent imho. And like uTorrent, you only need open one port in your router.

    It's in the repo's, install it and have a look. If you install Ubuntu Tweak, you'll see a new PPA for Deluge that you can use for the latest stable version (Highly recommended!)

    There is currently an alpha version of Utorrent available for Linuxhttp://www.utorrent.com/downloads/linux. This is one program I'm not too concerned about them having a Linux version, as there already so many great Linux alternatives that makes you not miss Utorrent.


    And if you want to run the Windows version, use Winetricks to install it. It Ran just as well as on Windows when I tried it out months ago.

    It seems like there is no way to solve this.

    aah.. my bad... gave up to install utorrent. yeah , i know. It is kinda hard for to stop using utorrent as i got used to it like 1 years? Migrating to Deluge now.. have to admit, Linux owned Windows in everything! EVERYTHING!
