@ smilliken I see that others on the qbittorrent forum are reporting problems with version 4.1. Perhaps I have been lucky ? there were a couple of issues when running 4.1.3 on my old desktop. I tried to move the whole torrent system onto another hard drive (that computer has 3 hd's) but could
not remove all of it. Seems that uninstalling qbit.. does not clear some of the configuration and I could not find the files. So abandoned
torrents on that machine and stoked up the old Dell that already 4.0.3 installed. Upgraded to 4.1.3 and as reported earlier, there have been no
problems.

I'm having problems with this package as well. The search tab functions and the window populates, but when the download button is clicked on, the download window pops up and it hangs on retrieving the metadata. Nothing populates in the Transfer tab. If I click on another source in the search tab, another window will pop saying, "Magnet link is already queued for processing", but nothing ever happens in the Transfer tab.

I don't think this has anything to do with MX, but more with the package itself. I've been having problems with the package on a Mac OSX as well.
Did you update from 4.1.2 or from an older MX 17 or Stretch version?
From 4.1.2 to 4.1.3 in MX 17.1
I also upgraded from 4.1.2 to 4.1.3 in 17.1.

Do you still have the 4.1.2 deb in /var/cache/apt/archives? It's a single deb, so you should be to downgrade to it with gdebi. If that restores the functionality, we'll go back to 4.1.2.

If you don't have it, I still have debs here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=17ID_K ... 9H6Jwy8cXZ

Will check mine again when I get off this machine and back on the Galago. I downloaded some stuff with the current version and it was seeding those downloads fine. Doing a search and downloading something from the list doesn't cause anything to hang. Will check it again to be sure. Meanwhile I'll see what happens on this Lenovo G560 laptop. Will come back and update this post.

Edit: Installed on Lenovo and the downloading & uploading of torrents is working fine. I installed search engines and searched for torrents. Selected 3 and they downloaded ok. I am now seeding those 3 torrents without issue. All seems to be working fine. Exited, reopened QB and it picked up torrents and resumed downloading. Finished torrents and they are good files / downloads.

This all looks a bit odd. An upgrade from 4.0.3 to 4.1.3 works, but upgrades from 4.1.2 have problems ?

Can confirm the above. Just upgraded from 4.1.2 to 4.1.3. Loading a magnet link brought up the add torrent dialogue, but never loaded the torrent options. Adding it anyway, the torrent began to download but remained forever in the "Moving" state.

Purging 4.1.3 and libtorrent-rasterbar9 and then reinstalling 4.1.3 has solved this for me.

I wonder if it could be related to the version of libtorrent-rasterbar9 in use.

Can those with issues check the version in Synaptic or "apt policy libtorrent-rasterbar9"?

We do have a newer version in testing that you can try if 1.14 blah blah is the one you're using.

Code: Select all

$ apt policy libtorrent-rasterbar9
libtorrent-rasterbar9:
