Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170853
consider a bittorrent client in the default install
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:56:29 EDT
Ubuntu uses gnome-btdownload, and it is nicely integrated with the mime system
(clicking on a torrent file in firefox starts it)
gnome-btdownload can be found at http://gnome-btdownload.sourceforge.net
It requires bittorrent, which is in Extras.
It might be a good idea to get gnome-btdownload into extras instead.
Note that correct URL is http://gnome-bt.sourceforge.net/
I see no reason to include gnome-bt, not even in extras, as we already have
* >clicking on a torrent file in firefox starts it
this is done by bittorrent-gui available in extras now too
* bittorrent-gui supports multiple torrent downloads, also integrates torrent
* bittorrent-gui uses GTK, but not GNOME (which is good)
Too late now for FC5 anyway, no ?
That is likely.
IMHO from the discussion and testing them I think the standard bittorrent-gui
client is the best choice for this. We'll see when we get it in.
Moving to FC6Target
Add to FC6Destop tracker
Too late for FC6
Why is this against nautilus.
Alex, one thing we should make sure with the bittorrent client that is now in
the desktop spin is that we start it when clicking on bittorrent links.
It should work by default if the client registers it knows about the mimetypes,
as bittorrent-gui and azureus do now - clicking in firefox opens one of them
automatically (azureus if there are both).
