Problem installing Bittorrent


Using Debian Lenny
I installed 2 programs with aptitude:
bittorrent and bittornado
I can find some files for these, but nothing in /usr/bin,
and when I run either of these commands:
bittorrent or bittornado I'm told the commands are not found.

I installed these because I like the curses interface.
What else do I need to install with these?

Thanks

Transmission, Ktorrent, Azureus and Deluge are good BT applications for Linux, they might work better than those 2 anyway, so give them a try.

Bittorrent are Python scripts and AFAIK the filenames start with "bt" so 'ls /usr/bin/bt*' should show them if they're installed into /usr/bin/.

For the curses interface there should be a Python-curses package, I don't know the exact name since I only require '/usr/bin/btdownloadheadless.py'. Running the applications should be easy if you check the manual pages. Not Debian but here's two examples for BitTorrent and BitTornados btdownloadcurses: http://www.digipedia.pl/man/btdownlo...torrent.1.html, http://www.digipedia.pl/man/btdownlo...tornado.1.html.

Thanks. I found the programs.
Code:
joe@debian:~$ ls /usr/bin/bt*
/usr/bin/btcompletedir                  /usr/bin/btlaunchmany.bittornado        /usr/bin/btrename
/usr/bin/btcompletedir.bittornado       /usr/bin/btlaunchmany.bittorrent        /usr/bin/btrename.bittornado
/usr/bin/btcompletedir.bittorrent       /usr/bin/btlaunchmanycurses             /usr/bin/btrename.bittorrent
/usr/bin/btcopyannounce                 /usr/bin/btlaunchmanycurses.bittornado  /usr/bin/btsethttpseeds
/usr/bin/btdownloadcurses               /usr/bin/btlaunchmanycurses.bittorrent  /usr/bin/btshowmetainfo
/usr/bin/btdownloadcurses.bittornado    /usr/bin/btmakemetafile                 /usr/bin/btshowmetainfo.bittornado
/usr/bin/btdownloadcurses.bittorrent    /usr/bin/btmakemetafile.bittornado      /usr/bin/btshowmetainfo.bittorrent
/usr/bin/btdownloadheadless             /usr/bin/btmakemetafile.bittorrent      /usr/bin/bttrack
/usr/bin/btdownloadheadless.bittornado  /usr/bin/btreannounce                   /usr/bin/bttrack.bittornado
/usr/bin/btdownloadheadless.bittorrent  /usr/bin/btreannounce.bittornado        /usr/bin/bttrack.bittorrent
/usr/bin/btlaunchmany                   /usr/bin/btreannounce.bittorrent
I tried btdownloadcurses.bittornado & btdownloadcurses.bittorrent
They seem to be the same. They both run in curses dialogue. There are some other programs
as well that came with them. I'll check them out.
