Angry Using Bit Torrent with Fedora 1.0


I'm using Fedora 1.0 and I can not seem to get Bit Torrent working at all. I want to be able to use the GUI, but I am not having luck at all. I should be able to save the .torrent file to my home dir, then click on it from Nautilus and Nautilus should start running the GUI.

Does anyone have any installation advice or links to help/files that will help smooth out my install of BT? Thanks!

I know you asked to do it through gui, but you can also do it with the command line fairly simply. If you have it installed just type btdownloadheadless.py file.torrent or you can type btdownloadcurses.py file.torrent. The 2nd way give you a "graphical text" display of your progress.

yeah, for some reason this command

./btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 20 csi.torrent

works with these clients, http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/ and http://bt.degreez.net/ but i couldn't get it to work with this one, http://ei.kefro.st/projects/btclient/
