    Wine?

    Or, you can just try qBittorrent. I use that one and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Transmission also does a pretty good job. It is a bit dicky sometimes however.

    There's a lot of others though. I recommend rTorrent. It's entirely command line based. Entire interface is in text. It's really cool.

    Another vote for transmission. If you are comfortable with uTorrent, I am surprised you didn't like Deluge, the UI is practically the same, at least in my experience.

    the instrucitons should be inside the package. you might need to compile it yourself.


    also what is wrong with deluge? if you need something less memorry consuming just use transmission. there are so many good torrent clients in linux...
