What is the best alternative under Ubuntu for torrent client that has functionality close to uTorrent under Windows? Particularly performance, webgui, folder watch, labeling, compatibility with most torrent clients, UPnP.

First one that springs to mind is Transmission. I haven't used it that much, but it's pretty similar from memory.

I have used it but it's not what I like... – Pablo Aug 19 '10 at 6:35
+1, Transmission FTW. – Wuffers Nov 6 '10 at 2:47
Transmission sucks. Torrents never goes to finish. They are either seeding or paused. I couldn't find any option to stop torrents either. Oh boy switching from utorrent is not easy. – Neutralizer Oct 15 '13 at 19:52

ktorrent is very good indeed.

utorrent does run just about fine under wine, for what it's worth.

Have you tried Deluge? You can find it in the Ubuntu Software Center.


It seems that there is a Linux version coming out soon (source).
