Installing uTorrent on Ubuntu 8.10

Switching to Ubuntu doesn’t necessarily mean you have to say goodbye to all your favourite programs on Windows.

It is safe to say μTorrent is the most popular and widely used bittorrent client at the moment. Unfortunately there is no Linux version of the program yet. But you can still install and run it on Ubuntu, and here’s how.

First you have to install Wine on your computer. Wine is a software which allows you to run Windows applications on Linux, MacOS, etc. After you install Wine, download the latest version of μTorrent from here.

Once the .exe file is downloaded, double-click on it to begin installation. During the installation make sure the installation directory is inside My Computer -> C:\ drive. This is a virtual drive created by Wine for installing Windows applications. (You can browse through this directory by going to Applications -> Wine -> Browse C:\ Drive)

choosing the installation directory

When the installation is completed, you can run μTorrent by double-clicking on the shortcut created on your desktop, or your can go to Applications -> Wine, and select μTorrent from there.
