Install Transmission BitTorrent 2.83 in Ubuntu 14.04

Transmission BitTorrent is a cross-platform BitTorrent client (in GUI, CLI and daemon form). All its incarnations feature a very simple, intuitive interface on top of an efficient, cross-platform back-end. Transmission is an open source application with low memory footprint.

According to the developers:

  • Transmission doesn’t bundle toolbars, pop-up ads, flash ads, twitter tools, or anything else.
  • It doesn’t hold some feaures back for a payware version.
  • Its source code is available for anyone to review.
  • They don’t track users, and their website and forums have no third-party ads or analytics
  • Uses less CPU than any other GUI client, including some non-GUI clients
  • Transmission also has the lowest memory footprint of any major BitTorrent client

Transmission has the features you want from a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web interface, peer exchange, magnet links, DHT, µTP, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, webseed support, watch directories, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Uses fewer resources than other clients
  • Native Mac, GTK+ and Qt GUI clients
  • Daemon ideal for servers, embedded systems, and headless use
  • All these can be remote controlled by Web and Terminal clients
  • Local Peer Discovery
  • Full encryption, DHT, µTP, PEX and Magnet Link support
