    UltimateCat, I don't know if either of these links would help. I'm following your progress and researching as well, because this will be a learning curve for me too.

    Slickymaster:
    That was a good webpage; thank you. This is what I gathered from it and interpreted what I should do-
    (Installing with the terminal has always been hard for me; generally I avoid it!)

    I hope these step's work: And that I have right-
    Worse case the terminal will give me a warning or an error I could learn from-

    1. Open the terminal and run
    Code:
    tar -zxvf qbittorrent-3.0.9.tar.gz
    2. cd Downloads (that's were the new version of qbittorrent 3.0.9 is)

    3.Than run
    Code:
    ./configure
    4. Than make, sudo su, and make install? ? All together or one at a time?

    I found the Install file-
    Code:
    1) Compile and install qBittorrent with Qt4 Graphical Interface
    
      $ ./configure
      $ make && make install
      $ qbittorrent
    
      will install and execute qBittorrent hopefully without any problems.
    
      Dependencies:
        - Qt >= 4.6.0 (libqtgui, libqtcore, libqtnetwork, libqtxml, libqtdbus/optional)
    
        - pkg-config executable
    
        - libtorrent-rasterbar by Arvid Norberg (>= 0.15.0)
            -> http://www.libtorrent.net
            Be careful: another library (the one used by rTorrent) uses a similar name.
    
        - libboost 1.34.x (libboost-filesystem°) + libasio
          or
        - libboost >= 1.35.x (libboost-system, libboost-filesystem°)
          
        °libboost-filesystem is not needed if libtorrent-rasterbar >= v0.16.x is used
    
        - python >= 2.3 (needed by search engine)
            * Run time only dependency
    
        - geoip-database (optional)
            * If qBittorrent cannot find this database, it will try to resolve countries using the Internet but it will be a lot slower.
            * Run time only dependency
    
    2) Compile and install qBittorrent without Qt4 Graphical interface
    
      $ ./configure --disable-gui
      $ make && make install
      $ qbittorrent
    
      will install and execute qBittorrent hopefully without any problems.
    
      Dependencies:
        - Qt >= 4.4.0 (libqt-devel, libqtcore, libqtnetwork)
    
        - pkg-config executable
    
        - libtorrent-rasterbar by Arvid Norberg (>= v0.15.0)
            -> http://www.libtorrent.net
            Be careful: another library (the one used by rTorrent) uses a similar name.
    
        - libboost: libboost-filesystem, libboost-date-time, libboost-thread, libboost-serialization
    
    
    DOCUMENTATION:
    Please note that there is a documentation with a "compiling howto" at http://wiki.qbittorrent.org.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    This install file is explainatory but very confusing as I have never performed this task before-
    I'll see if going to the qbittorrent wiki page helps.

    I usually only have to pratice a task once and than I've got it; this is really challenging me.

    I was initially impressed with voyager but it became old very quickly.

    Issue those commands one at a time.

    Stop making your life so difficult by trying to compile qbittorrent. Install Transmission and use that, it works as I've tested it with that voyager torrent.

    @UltimateCat
    That's the best advise.

    I'm glad to know this too. Transmission is what I already have installed so I'll give it a go. I used it once, for my Xubuntu 12.04 download, but ended up going with the direct download anyway because the torrent file didn't have the option to try before installing. (More timidness on my part.)

    I think that's more of a wise approach than timidness.

    Thank you! Slickymaster for teaching me how to do that.
    I needed that confirmation: one at a time--

    In the future I will be able to practice this if I need to.
