GNOME BitTorrent Downloader


A GNOME "mime-sink" for BitTorrent files. It's not meant to be an entire front-end, just a program that pops up when you "execute" the torrent files.


My final release is 0.0.32. The official BitTorrent 3.x Python interface limits what I can properly implement. A complete rewrite would be necessary for dramatic improvements. Fortunately, Transmission is managing to provide a modernized yet non-Azureus like client for GTK+.


For source tarballs or packages (hand-made Debian and alien-generated RPMs) visit the SourceForge files page.

Build Instructions

  1. Extract the archive.
  2. Check README to ensure you have all of the required dependencies installed. Unfortunately, the configure script is not too intelligent at the moment.
  3. ./configure
  4. make
  5. make install (as whatever user you need to be)
