Ktorrent and deluge. I prefer ktorrent because it fits in nicely with KDE.

My favourite is ctorrent. There's a slackbuild for it at It's a command line utility and very lightweight.

There is also a python based torrent(commandline). Look under /extra on the dvd, or disc 3 or 4, or whichever it is on the cd isos now. Thats the one I use.

Deluge is alright. I use it on FreeBSD 6.2 with XFCE. The only problem is that at the mo its not as feature rich as ktorrent and Azureus.
