Torrent clients for Linux
There is plenty of torrent clients for Linux out there. We will look closer at the most common ones and list the ones that out there but not as popoular than the rest.
One of the most popoular torrent client for Linux. It’s fast, don’t demand much requirements and works fine in gtk+ and qt.
Has most of the main features that you need for a torrent client. Nothing unique that stands out against the rest though.
Written in python and has RSS feature (from plugin) to make it possible to download new files from sites without doing anything.
Supports plugin, that makes deluge even more powerful than it already is. It’s faster to create own torrent files than Transmission.
It has plenty of features from start, if you looking for something simple then Qbittorrent or Transmission is a better alternative.
Built for qt. Has a own search engine to find torrent files inside the client. Simultaneous search in most famous BitTorrent search sites.
Advanced RSS support with download filters. Lock application with a password, so no one can see what you downloads/uploads.
Anonymous Mode, qBittorrent tries to hide its identity to a certain degree. The peer-ID will no longer include the client’s fingerprint. The user-agent will be reset to an empty string.
Built for kde. Don’t have any personal information about this one, as I haven’t used kde for some time now. Recommend to install it and give it a go, if you don’t like the other clients.
Vuze (former Azureus)
Very powerful torrent client. Using java to be able to run it. Got plenty of features, like RSS feed, Video playback, HD Player and be able to search within the client. Might feel it’s too much for a torrent client though. As you still only want to probably download and upload files. Nothing i recommend for daily use though.
One of the most simple torrent client. It doesn’t have many features. So if you are looking only for a client to download and upload from, then bittornado might be the application for you.
Another simple gtk+ torrent client. Hasn’t been updated for awhile, might be abandoned. Won’t write anything about it, look at their site and give it a go.
There is only native linux server available. But the client works flawless with wine. Many users use utorrent with wine. As it’s fast, clean and got the right features as a torrent client should have. This is a great torrent client and do not think it’s worse than any other clients because it uses wine.
I would say it fits in the top 5 torrent clients for running in Linux.
Haven’t tested this one, using java to run the client.
Is a textbased client. But you can easily add a front-end for it. Like rutorrent or similar. All kinds of front-ends uses web browser to do different things though,
Textbased client. Also can add front-end for it. Web browser interface like webui-aria2. Feels little easier to use than rtorrent from command-line though. Only tested briefly, so can’t write so much information about it.
Haven’t been updated for few years now. Lacks alot of main features that you asume all clients should have. I do not recommend this torrent client, but want you to know that it exist.
I’m not sure if I should even mention it, but has built-in bittorrent client. So it’s being mentioned. That’s about it
I know, it’s a web browser, but has inbuilt bittorrent. So it’s possible to download torrent files with opera out of the box. But lacks of features off course.
While not a heavyweight in the bells & whistles category, Halite is a functional BitTorrent client.
Same as utorrent, a windows client. But worth mention it though. As it’s as good as utorrent.
Got the main features and nothing more. Really fast and optimized for speed. If you prefer a torrent client without many optional features, then give this a go.
The best client is Deluge, Qbittorrent or Transmission. I recommend Qbittorrent because rss feeds and being able to search within the application. Aslo the GUI feels simple and the developers are listening to the users.
