Download torrents using command line in linux

I have been using btdownload-curses for some time to download torrents form linux command line. Recently for some reason it kept failing. Upon investigation I found out that rtorrent is a much better option. In ubuntu installing it is as simple as sudo apt-get install rtorrent.

Had some problems installing it in CentOS 5.5. Finally I found a couple of rpms which could save you the headache. Get the rpms. For some reason I couldn't install them directly using rpm command.


Install them using rpm -Uvh in the same order as above.



  • I've been looking all over the internet about how to download torrents using Linux. The guide you gave is very useful. Thank you so much for sharing. I really appreciate your post.
