Transmission: A lightweight GTK Bittorrent clientJuly 25, 2006 at 5:24 pm | Posted in programs, xubuntu | 12 Comments
If you’re missing a Bittorrent client, but you want one with low memory and CPU usage, then Transmission is the one for you:
It features…next to nothing. If you want something with more features, then you might prefer Azureus.
However, if you’re interested, you can install it by typing these commands into the Terminal (Xfce Menu > System > Terminal):
sudo dpkg -i transmission-0.7.0-806.deb
You can run it by going to Xfce menu > Network > Transmission, or run
From the Terminal.
You could also use the original Bittorrent; however, the one in the repositories is very outdated (Version 3.x). If you want something that’s still light and has more features, you can also try that too.
