This is a relatively painless process if you follow this tutorial. Note that I am using a 64bit operating system.
First off; download the µtorrent client here: http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/linux.
If it is in the ~/Downloads folder then type:
tar -xvf utorrent-server-3.0-ubuntu-10.10-27079.tar.gz
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8
to enable the SSL components of the server to function.
If you are still missing the LibSSL library; then type:
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386
this will install the 32bit version of the libraries that are needed to run µtorrent.
Then navigate to the directory containing the µtorrent binary by typing:
and then type
to start the server.
After this; open a browser and enter this URL to open the interface:
the username is admin and the password is blank.
This is what the torrent client should look like when you access the GUI.[caption id="attachment_6151" align="aligncenter" width="500"] The torrent client running on Linux Mint 15.[/caption]
This is not too painful an enterprise after all. The µtorrent server works well on Linux Mint 15 and is a good way to download your torrents.
