    You mean just getting it to work ??
    get the deb, double click, install, go to applications>internet, click tribler ...

    Or maybe you meant compiling from source ?
    Look at the instructions from their website (they have their own customized version of a python library witch requires pyhon headers and all to compile ..)

    Yeah, MIT license I think, anyway it's based on ABC witch is based on Bittornado witch is based on the officiel bittorrent client, so I think it HAS to be opensource

    Re: Tribler : the best bittorrent client for linux ?

    thanks reda_ea for introducing (and putting the package together) Tribler to the rest of us. I think Tribler is the best linux torrent appliation I have used yet (azureus was slow and took up too much memory/cpu. qtorrent, bittornado, default bittorrent didn't display unicode correctly and didn't support multiple torrents at one time).

    The main features that I really liked about Tribler:
    - lots of options (I can change ports, limit download/upload speed, change default download location)
    - support of unicode filenames
    - nice gui

    But is it better than uTorrent & BitComet for Windows?
    close, but not quite there yet.
    Things I like dislike about Tribler:
    - ahhhh... integrating "human friendship" into a torrent software? not for me, at least not in a torrent software. there are instant messengers, forum, etc. for that.
    - Another feature that is bugging me is that this software "recommends torrent" to me. Is it monitoring on me? It just doesn't feel right somehow.
    - The "advanced options" are embedded too deeply and can only be access once the torrent is downloading. For example, if a torrent file consists of multiple files and I want to exclude one of them from downloading (ie I don't want/already have that particular file), I won't be able to deselect that file until I have selected a download location (which will automatically download all the files).

    from the FAQ in the official website

    Privacy
    From our license: [Tribler] will by default exchange your download history with others. This feature can be disabled by disabling the recommender in the Preference menu. See also the disclaimer at [the bottom of this page]
    so all it does is send your history to others, they don't keep it on a server (wich would have been stange for a P2P app), and you can disable it.

    Anyway these are just features you only use if you want, The recommendations don't work yet for me, I think I need more history and it needs more users contributing.

    I also hate not being allowed to chose wich files to download before the download begins, that's the main reason I didn't like other clients (and the reason I like bitcomet). I also don't like having to double click on a torrent to have it's details.

    yeah, that one is awesome, but you need a web server first
