What program are you trying to install?
1. GUFW does indeed filter IPs, and
2. It is not a good idea for new users to go outside of the repositories, much less compile a new program from source.
If you don't like GUFW, you can try Firewall Builder, which is also available in the repos and can be downloaded by doing:I use fwbuilder to build my rules set for my router which has been converted to dd-WRT and it works quite nicely. Documentation like users manual and tutorials can be downloaded straight from their site and are very clear and helpful with plenty of examples. ***REPEAT*** Do not download the app from the site--only the docs. Downloading apps outside of the repos is a bad Windows practice that is neither safe nor necessary.Code:sudo apt-get install fwbuilder

ok. i might messed up things a little bit. but i have never mantion i want to set up my firewall or even build it i just wanted to install peerguardian or ipblock or iplist program that can fillter information or whatever so i can safely use transmission or any other p2p software that deals with torrents...so i have found it on the source forge website but got trouble to install it. couse i dont know how couse i am new to that stuff all that command line, packages compilation or whatever else. so didi ask for help installing this ipblock thingy i was useing for years under windows only 2 clicks away, i did ask for few lines of code/commands how to get this stuff working. is it realy that much??? though Ubuntu was made by people for people not for people that know how to use linux. and also ubuntu forums supposed to be place where people like me newbies could find help "How To" but so far only few of You, familiar with this OS was acctually bothered to read carefully my post and give seriouse advice, help with a code. which whom i am thankfull...
Then what you want is a blocklist for Transmission, not a whole new firewall builder.
A quick Google search should yield some URLs for Transmission blocklists. Paste the URL into the Transmission preferences window and it will keep you safe.
