Install Transmission 2.0 In Ubuntu
By on July 4th, 2010

Transmission is the default bit torrent client in Ubuntu. It is one of my favorite bit torrent clients. Its simple interface is the thing I like the most about Transmission. Although it many seem inferior compared to some other bit torrent clients, it is still a very good client and has all the features most people would need.

With the release of Transmission 2.0, it has just become a lot better. Transmission 2.0 has a number of improvements/changes from the previous version. These includes:

  • More lightweight and faster startup time.
  • “Local peer discovery” to discover peers in the local network.
  • Better tracker announcement.
  • Use of IEC standards.

If you are using Ubuntu, here is how you can install it:

Open the Terminal.

Add the PPA ppa:transmissionbt/ppa with the command:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa

Then update the software list with

$ sudo apt-get update

Finally upgrade with the command

$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Or, if you want to upgrade only Transmission execute  (the above command will update the whole system)

$ sudo apt-get install transmission
