Ubuntu – Install Transmission 2.50 BitTorrent Client

Transmission is designed for easy, powerful use. We’ve set the defaults to Just Work and it only takes a few clicks to configure advanced features like watch directories, bad peer blocklists, and the web interface. When Ubuntu chose Transmission as its default BitTorrent client, one of the most-cited reasons was its easy learning curve.

– Uses fewer resources than other clients
– Native Mac, GTK+ and Qt GUI clients
– Daemon ideal for servers, embedded systems, and headless use
– All these can be remote controlled by Web and Terminal clients
– Local Peer Discovery
– Full encryption, DHT, µTP, PEX and Magnet Link support
