    A torrent of questions.


    Hey there linux users!

    As is obvious, I am a new member, and easily the most inept one. Fedora is to me what a Rubik's cube is to a rock. A former windows member I am used to clicking, say, two buttons to download a torrent client. Now? I'm completely lost.

    Would you kindly direct me to a good torrent client (I could google them but I wouldn't be able to tell one's quality from the other) and hopefully, type up a short guide on how to install it.

    Thank you in advance,

    Son of a linux user.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Some rather popular clients for Linux in no particular order would include the following:

    ktorrent
    deluge
    transmission

    Many additional options can be found here:

    File Sharing | Linux App Finder

    I'd recommend using YUM, the default package tool for Fedora, to install the one of your choice if possible.

    By default, Bittorrent is pre-installed in Fedora but GUI. You have to install GUI manually. Execute this in Terminal :
    Code:
    su -c 'yum -y install bittorent-gui'
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
