Using Bit Torrent


I downloaded the linux rpm of Bit Torrent 4.0.4 from bittorrent.com. I installed the rpm on my SuSe 9.3 system. I have never used a bit torrent program before. Are there any settings that I need to setup for bit torrent to work? Also, how do I download a torrent file using bit torrent program?

Thank you

Hockeyfan

first save the torrent file to disk then in a terminal

btdownloadcurses.py file.torrent

for the gui

btdownloadgui.py file.torrent

if you get and error you need to install wxpython and wxgtk

you can also open the gui if theres an entry in the menu just like windows. Im sure you know how to use a dialog box.
if you want your browser to open torrent links you have to make the proper association with .torrent files

Hockeyfan: recompile/reemerge/reinstall your pygtk installation. That fixed it for me.
