Update: first bugfix release for 4.3 is out

New stable release for ktorrent and libktorrent.

The biggest changes since the 4.2 release include:
- Reintroduction of a tabbed torrent list widget, though a bit different then the old tab widget from the 4.1 days.
- Improved support for magnet links
- Support for removable storage
- A whole bunch of bugfixes and smaller improvements over ktorrent 4.2


For a full overview of all changes, take a look in the ChangeLog files included with the source code.

hi

is it possible to convert azureus filters ?

i would like for ktorrent to fetch my ~/.Azureus/filters.config and use it on ktorrent.

( i would like to switch between azureus and ktorrent on a regular basis )

thanx

If Azureus has the option to export/import filter to regular txt file then it will be possible with the next KTorrent release (v2.1).

SVN trunk holds the IPFilter changes to save/load filter to txt file so if that's usable by Azureus - you'll be able to do what you want.

I noticed that after a couple of hours of using KTorrent, CPU usage rises dramatically, sometimes reaching 90%. This is very annoying, as the 'resource friendly' advantage over Azureus loses its point...

In other cases, please report bugs to the forum on the ktorrent page or at the KDE bugzilla.

Note: if you already had a previous version of KTorrent, then your search engines list may be empty.
Go to Settings -> Configure KTorrent -> Search, and click the button "Add Defaults". You will then have the full list of ~9 engines.

Yes, this project has matured nicely! I notice, though, in recent versions the Status tab has acquired some titling, "Info", "Chunks", etc. My window background is a very dark blue-gray and the title field becomes a nasty mauve colour and the text is illegible. Frankly, I think the dialog looked better with titles in ordinary text. FWIW.

on ubuntu dapper, /usr/share/mimelnk/application/x-bittorrent.desktop conflicts with file from kdelibs-data.

Is there a way to fix it in the package? (without forcing install)

Download links will be updated soon and Kubuntu package managers made a proper deb with postinstall script which will replace conflicting mimelnk. Try package for i386 (x64 will be available soon) from this website (proper Kubuntu packages):

Hello, the rc1 breaks when I try to compile it from source, rightly complaining about not finding kt::downloadedchunkbar.h and two other ones in infowidgetbase.cpp.

I patched the infowidgetbase.ui file and it compiles (and runs) nicely on my box now.

patch -l infowidgetbase.ui << 'EOF'
756,758c756,758
< <includehint>kt::downloadedchunkbar.h</includehint>
< <includehint>kt::availabilitychunkbar.h</includehint>
< <includehint>kt::floatspinbox.h</includehint>
---
> <includehint>downloadedchunkbar.h</includehint>
> <includehint>availabilitychunkbar.h</includehint>
> <includehint>floatspinbox.h</includehint>
EOF

I run Slackware-current with gcc 3.4.6 and qt 3.3.6.

Thank you very much for KTorrent, it is very nice to finally have a great bittorrent application for KDE :D

Have a nice day :)

Well, I got the ubuntu package to install just fine on Xandros... But when I try to run the program it doesn't work at all.. I ran it in the console and it comes up with this.. ktorrent: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.4' not found (required b y /usr/lib/libktorrent.so.0)

Where do I get this lib file? and if I install it, will it mess my system up?

I have the 1.2 version running on Suse 10.1. Can I install the new version and if so, how? I am very new to Linux and could use some help. Thanks.

Go to:
http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_YaST_Package_Repositories
and add the repository for Guru's RPM site to YAST. For specific directions on how to add a repository to YAST, go to:
http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/16592.html
The document was written for Suse 10.0. Suse 10.1 is nearly identical except that you will probably get warnings about no valid security key or something like that for the guru repository. Just tell it to go ahead and use it anyway.

Then once you have added the guru repository, you can go into Software Management and use yast to download and install the newer version of ktorrent. In software manager, make sure the "Filter" drop-down menu is set to search, then in the search box, type in ktorrent. It should bring up the package. Don't worry about downloading the "debuginfo" package unless you plan on finding and fixing bugs in the source code.

I've used both KTorrent 1.2 and now the beta of 2.0. I've only got a few minor grips about both. Need documentation of the tabs and what they are for. For instance, in the 2.0 beta you have a Downloads and an Uploads tab. Why have both when a person can see that he's uploading from the upload speed? Unless it's for torrents that the user has created and is uploading. My only other grip is on the Peers tab. There are some totally useless fields included. Those fields being Choked, Snubbed, Score, and Upload Slot. All other fields relay great information.

OMG, ktorrent is sweet, i think i'm gonna use it over Azureus because Azureus takes up way too much resources.

Please get rid of the flickering underscores on the Downloads/Uploads tabs though, those are kinda annoying. (the underscores below the numbers)

Looks and works great, even the dht- and upnp-feature!
To return the favour I made a debian package for all non-ubuntu-users. Pick it up here:

http://harrys-home.gmxhome.de/ktorrent_2.0beta1-1_i386.deb

Made (and tested only) on a Debian (Unstable) Box with KDE 3.5.2.

Greetz!

KTorrent is now even better! Love the new features (and the fact that it is already in Portage). Although when it is running my internet starts to die and pages and such time out. This was happening an hour before I upgraded though and I think this is a war between me and my ISP since I have sent about 1.5GB and received about 2.5-5GB everyday for the last couple days. Adelphia, give me bandwidth now!

Hi,

last time I tried ktorrent, scheduler and problems with finishing downloads prevent me from using it.

It should be solved with new beta, I am giving it a try. Seem thats time to say azureus bye bye.

But what about after enabling scheduler, why is than this option shown in Menu > File ... on the last position? There should be EXIT, nothing else.

Though I can enable plugins I am not able to make the enabled plugins automatically enabled when Ktorrent launches.

Could the behavior be changed to make selected plugins automatically loaded at launch.

thanks,

Hi

Does anybody can explain why i have with ktorrent 1.2 total traffic > 1 GB (800 MB downloaded, 250 Mb uploaded) when i try download iso file 300 MB in size?
Uplink rate was restricted to 1 kbyte/s
(but seems ktorrent ignore this setting), and seeding was stopped after download.

I have ADSL (2Mbit/s) and pay for traffic so i'm not enjoyed with this program.
