Buffalo Linkstation install Ubuntu
UPDATE:For an updated and expanded HOW-TO (works on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and Ubuntu 11.XX), please proceed to this post.
When it comes to bittorrent for linux Deluge BitTorrent has been my favorite torrent client all along. Yes there may be others that work equally well or better (example: transmission torrent) but Deluge free torrent downloader has worked well for me. Deluge can run as a thin client with a nice looking web ui. If you are looking for bittorrent for windows, Deluge comes to your rescue again. You can even run it as a bittorrent client for windows and connect to a remote daemon.

Deluge offer the following features and more:
- Core/UI split allowing Deluge to run as a daemon

I recently moved to a headless Ubuntu Lucid Lynx server. In this post I am going to explain how to set up server running Ubuntu 10.04 with Deluge torrent with a web ui. Follow the below command line steps.
Add Deluge PPA Repository
If you want to install the version that is available in Ubuntu repository (usually a version or two behind) then skip this step. To get the latest version add deluge ppa to the sources list:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa
Then do a repository update:
sudo apt-get update
