Deluge Problem
Hi guys I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 and am having problems with deluge.

I recently tried unsuccessfully to install the updated litorrent and rtorrent while I used 7.04 before upgrading to 7.10. While using 7.04 I couldn't use deluge after messing up the rtorrent/litorrent thing, I thought the upgrade had sorted it but no.

Not sure what the hell is going on but the deluge in the repositories starts and thats it I can't delete torrents or add torrents and the only way I can shut it down is to end it process.

When I installed the lastest version from the debi file it doesn't even start heres the message I get trying to open deluge-torrent_0.5.6-1_i386:

Is the a way of un-installing everything I've tried "apt-get remove purge" but every time I reinstall it it knows where the torrents are, etc, so am I missing a config file somewhere?

Any help would be appreciated because this is really annoying!! Thanks Guys.

P.S. I hope this made sense.

Sorry for slow reply hope you've already found the solution but in case you haven't all you have to do is make sure you can view your hidden files and go to /home/username/.config/deluge and delete the "persistant.state" file which has been corrupted somehow a new one will be generated as the program starts. Note that you will have to go to /home/username/.config/deluge/torrentfiles and doubleclick on the torrents you had running because the persistant.state file holds the data for what torrents where running.

Hope this helps.
