    Since limewire only comes in .rpm, you'll need alien. Just search synaptic for it and it'll streamline the install for you. You can install bt through synaptic too. I prefer Ktorrent or azureus, but there are several other options in synaptic too.

    I grew up outside Buford, long before I-85 was built or any road had two lanes going in the same direction. I live in Wisconsin now though.
    Post some detail, like why do you want torrent etc? Are you trying to add software? What? All repositories enabled? My tries at torrent convinced me it was a cute idea that doesn't work as well as http or ftp.
    Stay Positive. Post detailed requests and you'll probably get detailed help.

    Have you tried the Automatix script? It has a plethora of p2p and torrent programs. Frostwire and Azureus (i never know how to spell it) among them.

    Bittorent is available in the Add/Remove application under the "Applications" menu.

    NOTE: If you do not see it, go to "software sources" under the system menu. Then, put a checkmark on all of the repositories, and you will now have it available either through synaptic or Add/Remove.

    Hope this helps!
