Code: Select all
apt-get install rtorrent
As you can see it looks very confusing. Let's start with a few basic steps:
If you hit enter (return) you'll be able to load a torrent or a URL. Backspace on the other hand does the same thing, but automatically starts it. If you want to change a directory you'll want to use the enter function.
CTRL+Q Quits the program
CTRL+O changes the directories of where you want the torrent to download (highlight the torrent). It's deafulty set to ./root
CTRL+D Stops a download
CTRL+R Inatinates a hash check of the torrent
Use the up/down arrow keys to switch between torrents. Left arrow will bring up useful info about the torrent such as peers, file list, etc. Just use the Right arrow to go back to the main screen. There's also a config file which you can choose to use and set up some stuff so everytime it'll load from the config file (do a search for rtorrent.rc)
If you want to throttle the speed you use the ASD/ZXC keys
For some more complex commands please refer to This Guide (^ meaning CTRL)
Current number of download slots in use and the maximum (0 if unlimited).
Current number of active HTTP requests (for tracker announces and downloads of .torrent files), and the maximum.
Current number of upload slots in use, and the maximum, which depends on the global upload rate limit.
The three numbers represent handshakes/open sockets/max open sockets.
The two numbers represent open files/max open files. The library dynamically closes the least used files as needed.
P.S. Linux is giving me a real headache in terms of installing and getting these things working perfectly (I reformatted now it doesn't work). It should work based on what's here, but there might be some additional config might be required. LGoogle it and have patient as I'm having a bit of trouble myself and a bit tired of asking for professional help again and again. I've had it I'm moving back to Windows if you need some help with anything linux based feel free to ask, however no promises
