EDIT:

These steps should work for most GNU/Linux users.

you'll need python and wxpython.

After that it's very simple, just copy the .py family of btdownloadgui.py and company to /usr/bin

then if your using mozilla or firefox and click on a .torrent tell it to open it. and fill in the Open with field with "btdownloadgui.py" and it should work fine :D


thanks this helped a lot. I'm a new gentoo user and after emerging bittornado (which also emerged python and wxpython), all I had to do was tell firefox to open the .torrent file with /usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py

try using
btdownloadcurses.bittornado
without anything following the commando you will get an overview of the options you can use
(you might want to bind the commando + the options to an alias, it's a "mouthfull" to type it all out every time)

hello all, I have some issue installing bittorent in Gentoo:
The problem is I by mistake installed first bittorrent-3.4.2-r2
now if I
Code:
$ emerge -pv =net-p2p/bittornado-0.3.8
[...]
[blocks B     ] net-p2p/bittorrent (is blocking net-p2p/bittornado-0.3.8)
[ebuild  N    ] net-p2p/bittornado-0.3.8  +X 215 kB

but trying
Code:
<03:40:01> - root 'at' alpha - ~
emerge -c net-p2p/bittorrent-3.4.2-r2

>>> clean: No packages selected for removal.

so it seems can't find a so named package (I've tried also the simple emerge -c bittorrent)
Note: the log of the installation of bittorrent-3.4.2-r2 have no errors so I think is some bug in the packaging/ebuild
I hope someone can advice me.

I have looked at

thanks
es

solved edit bittornado-0.3.8.ebuild and comment out
!virtual/bittorrent
Code:
RDEPEND="X? ( >=dev-python/wxpython-2.4 )
   >=dev-lang/python-2.1
   "
   #!virtual/bittorrent

now my firefox refuses to add a simple extension I've edited mimeTypes.rdf but with still no good result indeed it try to download it gosh...
Code:

  <RDF:Seq RDF:about="urn:mimetypes:root">
    <RDF:li RDF:resource="urn:mimetype:application/x-tar"/>

The edit of RDF for mimetypes was correct and just full restart made it work (not just switching user in profile manager).
Very nice application I love it :)

Conclusion
So I may have took the longest path to solve but I think
1) there is some simple packaging issue if by mistake you install bittorrent first
2) In my case firefox refused to associate a new mimetype (don't know why) ... If you have the same problem just edit the mimetype.rdf of your profile like I did.

cheers
Eli

Is anyone reading my post :?:
