PostPosted: Sat Dec 10, 2005 10:02 am 
:cry: can someone please tell about the 5th step of installling bittornado.
i do not know how to use terminal at all. when i opened, two Terminal windows popped out. one says bash and the other one i forgot. i dont know what to do next.

Any pointers to how to use this program would be greatly appreciated. :)

If you've got 'terminal windows' & a 'bash-prompt' i'd guess you're running Linux with an X-windows session - can you let us know which distro & desktop-environment you have?

Also, if '' caused something to happen, at least you've got it installed, which is more success than others have had. :lol:

If you want to use the terminal-based version of bittornado, the command to use is '', & it has a long list of possible options - try typing just that command without passing it a filename to open, & see for yourself.

The graphical user-interface is much simpler to use initially, but fits the Gnome desktop-environment better than KDE - if you're running Gnome, you probably just need to setup your 'MIME-types' so that torrent-files open automatically with it... :wink:
