Question How to run Azureus from Command Line (Not Xwindows)?

I have my torrent machine and when it boots up I want it to go to command line and then I want to SSH into it and manually start azureus.

what is the command to do this? without having the gui popup?

I wonder if this is even possible? I also would like to have it start up on boot as well if anyone has that solution quick like.


I try ./azureus but i get this:
Starting Azureus...
Java exec not found in PATH, starting auto-search...
Java exec found in  /usr/java/jre1.5.0_03/bin/
Suitable java version found  [/usr/java/jre1.5.0_03/bin/java = 1.5.0_03]
Configuring environment...
Loading Azureus:
/usr/java/jre1.5.0_03/bin/java -Xms16m -Xmx128m -cp "/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/azplugins_0.8.8.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/azplugins_1.1.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/azupdaterpatcher_1.6.3.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/Azureus2.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/swt.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/swt-mozilla.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/swt-pi.jar:/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus/Updater.jar" -Djava.library.path="/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus" -Dazureus.install.path="/home/abcampa/Desktop/azureus" org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main ''

Is this even possible?

You would want something like BitTornado for this. Then you can just do:

# something.torrent

Or install XVFB (X virtual frame buffer) and you can run X-window applications in command line like this:

xvfb-run azureus

g33sp0t has it right. Also if X is installed and you dont want it starting what ever linux GUI is installed you can stop it by not running kdm, gdm, or xdm at boot. Depends on the flavour, debian and ubuntu use gdm, you can stop it by

mv /etc/rc2.d/S99gdm /etc/rc2.d/K99gdm

look up stopping gdm or kdm or xdm (whatever you are running) at boot.

and if you want to start azureus at boot, look up writing an init script to place in /etc/init.d

Azureus headless

Its old but I hope this information works for someone else.

I wrote a blog entry on how to configure azureus using both X running and without X running.
