bittorrent client for the console
Hi,
Would it be possible to get rtorrent, perhaps with a colour patch?

I tend to use the console a lot with the weak laptops I have, and rtorrent is very lightweight. And although rtorrent is a little hard to figure out at first, I've read that the colour patch apparently makes it more user friendly (I haven't tried any of the colour patches myself). Also, if the version of Transmission available for Deli(cate) doesn't support magnet links, then maybe rtorrent will?

EDIT--Oh, I just noticed that nl2stk was working on ctorrent....but I guess without success?

RE: bittorrent client for the console
I've introduced ctorrent-dnl, but it very probably doesn't support magnet links ... I remember Theo mentioning that and trying to introduce transmission ....

So .... we need to look at the transmission build too ... Easton recently shared his PKGBUILDs ....

It seems rTorrent supports magnet links too ... I'll try to look at that.

Hi Tavvva,

Sorry, I must be blind, because last night I updated the packages with pacman and searched for "torrent" but I thought I found only transmission. But now I see ctorrent-dnl is there too.Tongue I'll try to check it out with magnet links.

Yes, rTorrent does support magnet links, at least the modern versions of it do....

I also got Transmission working under Delicate, post here. Transmission also has a CLI interface.

I've tried a couple of times to figure out how to use transmissioncli, but it's not obvious enough for me. I like rtorrent because it has an ncurses interface, but I don't think transmissioncli has. Maybe I'll try again to get transmissioncli running, because this version (1.80) could work just fine for everything. If I get it going, then maybe I could write a quick HOW-TO to help others get started....

EDIT-actually the transmission-daemon does have an ncurses interface, transmission-remote-cli.

I personally have never used the CLI interface for Transmission so I can't really comment. Tavvva has set up a wiki here so perhaps PM him to get an account and create an article or just make a forum topic Wink

You aren't blind ... I added the package yesterday :]

That's a great idea if I manage to discover anything useful.Smile

Bittorrent clients with ncurses, not CLI:

BTG

Dependencies: https://btg.berlios.de/howto.html#required-software

ncurses UI for transmission:
screenshots: https://github.com/fagga/transmission-re...creenshots
dependencies: https://github.com/fagga/transmission-re...quirements
Arch linux: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/commu...emote-cli/

Bittornado
should have a ncurses UI, didn't find UI
Web: http://www.bittornado.com/
I don't know if it is still developed, forum is quite old (2011).
