bittornado-gui help please.

ok just installed Debian-Sarge on my laptop (was running RH9) and have everything except bittorent up and running.

laptop:/# whereis bittornado-gui
laptop:/# apt-get install bittornado-gui
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
bittornado-gui is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.
laptop:/# bittornado-gui
-su: bittornado-gui: command not found
laptop:/# ./bittornado-gui
-su: ./bittornado-gui: No such file or directory
as you can see it is installed, but i have zero clue as how to access it. this is my first time trying to get any kind of torrent client running in *nix. in windows its your a-typical double click to install, then just click on the torrent you download to automatically start up the torrent client.

is that what i do in *nix too, or am i missing something.

I think the command is:

# something.torrent

or non gui:

# something.torrent
