torrent for Linux question


I think my Windows is shot. So my computer is now Linux based for the time being.
I was given tutorials that will take me months to master. It's just that I can't go away from my daily tasks. I am down to this one pc.
I need help with torrents. I downloaded Vuze 4.3 for Linux (Azureus). I also have Wine installed.
When I tried to download a torrent, for example, an application, a box pops up.
Open with Transmission bit torrent(default)
Save File

Which option should I go with? And what destination should I send it to?
It defaults to desktop, which I dont have the space. And when I directed it to 145.6 Gig media, I cannot find the file in there.
Help please?

Hello,

From the OS icon below your name I'm assuming you're using Ubuntu. If you want to download with Vuze then you'll need to save the file and open it after download with Vuze or select Vuze directly to open the torrent so that downloading starts immediately.

What do you mean with 'no space on the desktop'? And the other partition you pointed at? How is it that you cannot find a file in a partition when you previously save it yourself to that same partition?

Some clarification is needed please.

Kind regards,

Eric

I am getting errors now. It's saying it cannot save to desktop because there is no space.
this is what i have when i open places>computer:
1.0 gb media
5.1 gb media
145.6 gb media
CD-RW/DVD-RW drive
Compact Flash Drive
Memory stick drive
smart media drive
usb drive
filesystem

Where can I save my large files and how can i retrieve it? I tried to save a file at one time to the 145.6 gb drive because of it's size but when I tried to retrieve the file, I cannot find it under 145.6 gb media. It's just a bunch of folders that I cannot understand.

And what if you would create a directory on the 145.6 gb media so that you could find your file after downloading?

Also it seems strange to me that you don't have any space left on your Desktop. How did you setup your Ubuntu partitioning when you installed? Or have you already downloaded a lot?

Kind regards,

Eric

Actually no. I just started. I just went with the defaults when I installed Ubuntu. I did not change anything.
How can I look up how Ubuntu partitioned the hard drive? And can I still make changes to it?
I will try and create a folder in the 145 gb drive and see what happens.
thanks.

Hi,

As pointed out in the other thread you just opened (which you really shouldn't do because it will only confuse you and others trying to help out), open a terminal and type:
Code:
df -h
and post the output here please.

Kind regards,

Eric

Are you aware that you are currently using a livecd? I didn't see that mentioned.

If not, reboot, and take out the livecd and any external drives.

You don't need another BitTorrent Client. You have Transmission Bit Torrent. Open it with that. Your OS comes with one.

Then go to "thread tools -> mark as solved". Also, if you think I helped, press the blue thumbs up in the lower right corner of my post.

It's a bad idea to use Windows software with Wine if a Linux program exists.
