Ok i've installed a bittorent rpm and a python file from a website i visted. I assumed this installed the bittorrent client. Now I have a torrent file saved on my computer, but its not associated with anything. I'm new to linux, can anyone guide me through this please.
if you use KDE you can addd a filetype association in the konqueror settings.
without saying what you installed, i dont know what torrent client you installed, there are many Graphical, and many command line clients, you could have installed any one of them.
i installed a client, but nothing will associate with the actual torrent file. I don't know what the program that instaled would be called, but I can't find it any of the lists of programs I have. Thanks.
the problem is I don't know where bittorrent is. I have been searching through directories to see where it installed itself. When I right click on the rpm and go to open with installer it says it already installed. Is there some tool or command I could use to find it?
I just recently journeyed into the land of torrents myself. I would highly reccomend using bittornado instead of bittorent. On my system, the files are installed in /usr/bin and begin with bt (btdownloadgui.bittornado, etc...). Bittornado will give you much, MUCH more control of your processes than bittorent. Stay away from Azureus, it's java based, slow to download and absolutely SUCKS the resources, and that's when you can get it to work hehe.
well there bt files in my bin directory and i have a bunch of bittornado files in another folder. When i click the torrent file and try to open it with the py file nothing happens. and when i try to use the terminal i get permission denied. I also have no clue on how to make myself have permission for everything.

this is the listing of the bin folder
[justin@localhost bin]$ ls /usr/bin/bt*
alright basically i am having the same problem i am running fedora core 3 and i downloaded bittorrent 3.9.0 and ran the rpm and now i'm completely lost i did the locate command and this i what i got:
[root@localhost sam]# locate bittorrent
all i could get from these files were like pictures like the search button and stuff like that so if anyone could help that would be great
