    Is there a version of Vuze for ubuntu?

    Is there a version of Vuze (bit torrent client), for Ubuntu 12.04? If there is, please tell me how to install it.

    Thank you.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vuze

    Before installing, would I be able to check the version of vuze that is available?

    Yes: start Software Center, search for 'vuze', and click on More Info in the results. (It's Vuze 4.3).

    Thank you for the information, though I prefer Vuze because it has the best support for VPN services than other bit torrent clients. Regards.

    OK, I got this. Have I to install Java from the software center? Vuze needs Java to run in Windows. Is it the same in Ubuntu?

    Just click you want to install Vuze. Then Software Center will take care of all dependencies.

    Sure:
    Code:
    apt-cache show vuze
    or
    Code:
    apt-cache policy vuze
    or use the Software Center as was suggested.
