Deluge Bittorrent client for Linux

Windows has an awesome and yet tiny BitTorrent client in uTorrent. Though there are many BitTorrent clients for Ubuntu, none of them come close. Of the lot, I have found Deluge to be excellent.

Deluge has almost all of the features present in uTorrent and has a similar user interface too. If you are coming from Windows, you might find Deluge to be a good choice of a BitTorrent client. The only feature I miss from uTorrent is the download and upload graphs, which surprisingly no Linux client currently provides! The rest of the features I used in uTorrent work in Deluge too: assigning ranks to torrents and priorities to files within them.

Deluge can be installed from the Ubuntu repositories by using the package name deluge-gtk:

$ sudo apt install deluge-gtk

Tried with: Deluge 1.3.5 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
