uTorrent installed but just not working.


Recommended Posts

Been using uTorrent on PC for many years and thought I would try uTorrent on Ubuntu as Windows uTorrent kept crashing on me.

I installed a clean Ubuntu (18.04) and uTorrent :-


Product Version 3.3
Source Revision 30470
Build Date 2014-01-14 09:10:15 -0800
UI Revision 30470

Everything seemed to install correctly, no errors. I mapped my NFS drives. I can connect to the GUI and configure uTorrent, put in drive paths, schedule times for download etc. etc. but it just sits there looking pretty. I tried to add an RSS feed, seemed to work but again just sits there.. doing nothing.

Any ideas ?

As strange as it might sound, in your use-case, you might be better with lower cache in uTorrent, like the default - 128M ... Or even try cancel the cache for read.

Also, hiding part of your large torrent list from the main view - might be of help (can check with selecting only active/inactive on the left pane, or by add the "hidden" label. )
