jeopardy, you´re hijacking your own post
Anyway, you´re a newbie here, so it is ok, but in the future post different problems in different threads, so if somebody run into the same problem again he can find a solution.
About the bittorrent issue, are you sure that the file btdownloadgui.py has the right permissions set.
For example do this, 1) Open a terminal
2) cd <directory_of_btdownloadgui.py>
3) ls -l #ls -l will list all the files in the directory and show you their permissions , type man ls for more information
4) now if you get something like:
-rwxrwxr-- root root btdownloadgui.py
This is how you read it: i)"-" says it is a file
ii)"r" stands for Read
iii)"w" stands for Write
iv)"x" stands for execute
v) it is divided in three sets i mean the first three letters after the "-" are talking about the owner of the file(or Directory), the second set of three letters talks about the group and the last set about the other users.
Now the first "root" name you see talks about the owner which is root in this case and the second "root" tells you that the files belongs to the group root.
Now you will want a regular user can access the python file, so you have several options:
#1: use the chmod command #man chmod for more information
ex chmod o+rwx <file> this will give other users permissions to Read, Write and execute the file.
or #2 use the chown command which changes the owner of the file #man chown for more information
ex: chown <user> <group> <file_or directory>
And please, again you should not login to X as root, by X i mean Kde or Gnome or whatever window manager you use.
