Deluge - ein uTorrent artiger BT-Client für Gnome « DaLoosaa’s Blog

[…] Deluge – ein uTorrent artiger BT-Client für Gnome Veröffentlicht in Technik von daloosaa am 14. August 2007 Nach dem Radikal-Umstieg auf Linux [Ubuntu 7.04] habe ich lange nach einem passenden BT-Client für Gnome gesucht. Sicher gibt es bekannte Lösungen, wie Azureus welche Milti-Plattform fähig sind. Hier stört mich aber der Feature-Overflow und der Resourcenverbrauch. Also begab ich mich auf die Suche, nach einem passenden Client. Dies stellte sich jedoch als schwierig heraus, da wirklich brauchbare BT-Clients für Linux rar gesäht sind. Zuerst habe ich mich an Ktorrent herangewagt. Hier hat man als Gnome-User jedoch den Nachteil, dass die KDE-Libraries mitgeladen werden und so den kostbaren, wenigen Speicher mit dem ich mich herumschlagen muss unnötiger Weise füllen. Also wieder in die Google Linux Suche und weiter geschaut. Dort bin ich auf einen Eintrag auf sheehantu gestoßen, in dem Deluge vorgestelt wird. […]

yep! I agree..

Same conclusion as you.. Deluge is the best torrent-client (reliable and fast) for Ubuntu/Gnome environment…🙂

Yes it is a really good program, although i find it hangs after a while (a few hours) and has to be forced to close.

This is a really minor issue and likely to my system (64 bit so libs issue i reckon), but definitely a project that is worth watching, better (i.e. simpler to use / configure) than azreus but enough features to make it a ‘pro’ client.

Big thumbs up.

I’ve found some big problems with this client. The main one being that you cannot force it to re-check files which have been downloaded. I’ve had several instances where nearly completed torrents have failed to load properly on program start, and I was unable to force it to check how much data had already been downloaded, resulting in it wanting to re-downloaded 5+ gigs of data. Not cool.

Yes, uTorrent for windows, Deluge for Linux.

I have been making a conscious effort to use linux when I can, for fun more than anything else, and was getting a little frustrated with the bittorrent clients out there. Bittorret is short on features and Azureus was a big fat hog that started crashing when I started it. Deluge is the best choice so far.

Thanks to all of you for the input – the extra comments made the thread really easy to find and your research was EXACTLY what I would have done – but you saved us all the effort.

Thanks for this, it is very similar to uTorrent and is a whole lot faster than any other bittorrent client I have used on ubuntu as of today. I have been looking for something like this for quite some time now.
