they all can be run from the command line like this file.torrent
and it save in whatever folder you run it from
show a simple process dialogue in the console
(i use thsis in my vty1 etc terminals because it uses litlle ram, and is hidden from interferance, and also can run at even runtime level 1.)

type in a konsole and it will load the BT gui inside KDE gnome etc ask you for a torrenbt file then where you wish to download to. isnt recommended its literally no output of process it just sits blank and occasional messy output.

optional you can add switches to the end of all of them at the command line for
--max_upload_rate #
--max_uploads #
--min_port # --max_port #

OR... If you have mozilla or firefox (sure it works with konquerer etc) and are browsing for torrents on the net, and you find one that you want to download, just click on it and a window will come up saying "save to disk or open with" click the open with, and go to /usr/bin or whereevr it is in your system and click on the one. Make sure you press the radio button that says "always do this with these file types" Then next time you click on a torrent file it should hand it over to bittorrent.
hope this helps
