What's a good Bittorrent client for Linux?

Postby Capricornxs » Tue Jun 26, 2007 11:46 am

Hi, I've heard people can use wine to with with ubittorrent. But I'm just wondering if there's some application that I can use without using wine?

most importantly I want the "selective file" functionality, where if there're like 50 files I only download the files I want?

Thanks :)

if you're familiar with it, azureus is available, but if you have no preference, ktorrent is pretty simple and a solid client, and its pretty conformant to boot. just my two bits.

I love Deluge. It is very fast with downloads.

That doesn't matter. KDE programs work under GNOME and vice versa. I personally use Azureus, it has all the nifty features I want (like traffic encryption and such stuff ...) :D
