Description Matthias Clasen 2005-10-14 15:26:38 EDT
Ubuntu uses gnome-btdownload, and it is nicely integrated with the mime system
(clicking on a torrent file in firefox starts it)
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-24 23:25:46 EDT
gnome-btdownload can be found at http://gnome-btdownload.sourceforge.net
It requires bittorrent, which is in Extras.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-10-28 15:45:52 EDT
It might be a good idea to get gnome-btdownload into extras instead.  
Comment 3 Marius Andreiana 2005-11-02 07:05:30 EST
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
original bittorrent:

* >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
search box

* bittorrent-gui uses GTK, but not GNOME (which is good)

Too late now for FC5 anyway, no ?
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2006-01-23 04:10:22 EST
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.
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-01-27 16:44:01 EST
Moving to FC6Target
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-06 18:04:20 EDT
Add to FC6Destop tracker
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-19 20:26:51 EDT
Too late for FC6
Comment 9 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-04 11:25:58 EDT
Why is this against nautilus.
Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-05 10:55:55 EST
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.
Comment 11 Marius Andreiana 2007-02-05 12:06:44 EST
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).
Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2007-04-13 17:01:28 EDT
bittorrent/bittorrent-gui added.
