Howto use ktorrent 3.1.2 using kde 4.1.4


I have red similar threads but I'm not so lucky to find what I'm looking for.
I'm totally new with xubuntu 8.10 and want to download a cd installer for Debian linux. I have ktorrent on my system installed thru synaptic. I can go thru it by clicking application>network... after that I don't know what to do????

Go to the Debian site and download with kget.

or if you want to use torrents, then configure ktorrent a bit
download the torrent file and open it from ktorrent

Try www.linuxtracker.net too

igsen:

ktorrent, bitorrent, tornado, libtorrent, etc are the clients used in downloading files under "torrent" peer to peer protocol format. With this client you can download big files with better assurance of accuracy of your copy.

BUT... to download files under torrent you must have a "torrent" file pointing to the file (ISO) you wanted to. This *****.torrent file is just small, about 30-50 kilobytes, easily available/downloadable by clicking thru your firefox downloader; save it in your desktop folder first.

Having that ******.torrent file in desktop open your ktorrent, click File, Open, browse to your desktop then click open that *****.torrent file you just downloaded through firefox. Observe few seconds while your ktorrent client is greeting the "handshakes" with other peers, then you will notice that download begins.

This means that before you can use Ktorrent you must first hunt for the *****.torrent files covering the ISO you need, download it, then use it in your Ktorrent.

Distros that offer iso's usually offer ****.torrent files too, aside from ftp protocol downloads.

Check back if you have problems.

Goodluck.

Hope this helps.

Now, I know. Thanks to both of you. I will start downloading after I configure other applications of my xubuntu. You know, I'm a new convert and my former OS is in a way very different.
