Debian Bittorrent

Tried to install bittorrent and bittorrent-gui.

Both installed (seemingly), but /usr/share/bittorrent seems empty and there's nothing in the KDE menu that I can find. Trying to install kbittorrent.

Distros for Less: lightweight linux distributions

Setting up FUSE under Debian


Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) is a technology that allows programs operating in userspace to be mounted in the same way as filesystems based in the kernel can be. This allows a userspace program to interface to all sorts of services, or create completely virtual filesystems through a generic interface back to the kernel. Filesystems currently available via FUSE are listed on their wiki: FUSE wiki: FileSystems.
