    Where to locate downloaded programs?

    Hi everyone,

    I just downloaded Vuze from the software centre but I can't locate the program on the drive. I need to find where the program is on the drive so I can download torrents. Can someone tell me where it might be located?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    The software center will tell you where to find a application once it is installed, for example:

    Ubuntu comes pre-installed with software for using torrent files, it is called transmission, i did quite a bit of seeding for the ubuntu 13.04 release in the 64bit category

    executable files are located in /usr/bin/
    the downloaded package used for installing is downloaded to /var/cache/apt/archives/

    I didn't realize Ubuntu came with a torrent file program. So I went and deleted vuze and will just use transmisison.

    But to clarify, when I go to pirate bay and then right click the torrent and it asks me what application I want to use to open the file I go to usr/bin/transmission?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    We do not support piracy here and saying you want to download stuff off the pirate bay is just asking for trouble.

    As far as downloading normal torrents go, it should prompt you to open them with transmission.

    Thanks,
    Charles

    Not all torrents on thepiratebay is illegal.
