Did you look in the MX Packageinstaller test repo?

We have it in the test repo...some have reported problems with it like not being able to add new torrents, but I can't reproduce them. :frown:

Test at your own risk.

Have upgraded to 4.1.5 and have not found any problems. Tested adding a new Torrent and no problems, will run through the steps used here.

1. Go to Linux Tracker, find the required Torrent file and download it.
2. In qBittorrent click on the + icon (top left on screen), this brings a popup with list of Torrent files stored in Download Folder
3. Select required Torrent file - Highlight it and click Open (bottom right). Another popup.
4. Check pop-up for correct settings - Here it is set to Automatic Management. Click OK.
5. ISO file will now be downloaded if not not already done. Then Torrent will commence seeding the new addition.

MX-18.2 64bit. Also MX17, Kubuntu14.04 & Puppy 6.3.

Nice, last time I checked test repo it wasn't there, maybe I made a typo when searching. MX comes with Transmission out of the box, never used it. How good is it compared to QBittorrent?

Good? That depends what you mean by good. Both applications work in the background and give no trouble. I prefer qBittorrent as it provides (I think) more
information than Transmission.

It was added to the test repo about a week ago, if I remember correctly.

I'll Transmission for a while. Version 2.92 on MX is kinda old, can I safely update to 2.94? No bugs?

2.94 is in the Test Repo because it may h ave bugs. 2.92 in the main has been checked. If you go for 2.94 and find bugs please post
a note to the forum. That is why we have a Test Repo, we cannot expect the Packaging Team to do all the tests on new or updated
applications.

I always use Deluge and have zero problems with it. It's in the repos.

I never use Transmission since there's no magnet availability.
