Removing deluge - problem

ubuntu 10.04
deluge 1.2.2-2

My copy of deluge has got itself in a bit of a tangle.

I have tried removing it with synaptic packet manager.
(and tried removing two I believe associated files deluge-common 1.2.2-2 and deluge-gtx 1.2.2-2)

Everything appears ok but when I reinstall it has retained all the old setting and a list of partially completed files and it freezes ......etc.)

What I want to do is:-

1. Remove all traces of deluge and its previous setting.

2. Reinstall a completely fresh deluge.

(-(-(-(--- I did have a vuze installed at the same time?
could that be the problem.... I have now removed vuze -- but I guess there are a few vuze configuration files somewhere ---)-)-)-)

config files in the user's /home do not get removed.

look in ~./config and for any deluge directory in your user's home directory.

Also wouldn't hurt to do
apt-get purge deluge
apt-get install deluge

Thanks for that I had removed the .config/deluge folder.

apt-get purge xxxx is new to me thanks I'll give that a go when I get up tomorrow.

A better solution - forget about Deluge and install qBittorent I went through Transmission, Vuze, and Deluge on my Mint system (and Bitlord on Windows) and was not entirely satisfied with any of them, then I installed qBitorrent. It blows all the other bit torrent clients I have used away! It is the fastest of them all, has all the bit torrent related features you want without non bittorrent related bloat, has a slick GUI, and everything works perfectly. Deluge wasn't bad (though it would hang when I would try to close it) but qBittorrent is way better in all respects. In Mint, it is available from the package manager.

Thanks howdoi

Yes I agree I've been through several myself I was very happy with transmission but wanted more control, moved onto vuze but it kept messing me about, then onto deluge which worked well for a few months then wouldn't open or shutdown properly.

Since last night when I started this thread I had one further go with deluge.

This morning I have cleared it out as best I can.

I have reinstalled vuze and I am going to give it a day or so.

If I have more problems I'm going to try qbitorrent next.

I think I will close this thread now. Thanks to you both for the comments/advice.
