Torrent tools for Linux

Filed under
Software

In this article, we’ve put together a short list of torrent tools available to make your torrenting experience more interesting.

1. Torrent Episode Downloader - a smart tool for using BitTorrent to automatically download the newest episodes of TV shows that you choose. It has built-in support for “24″, “Lost”, “The Simpsons”, “South Park”, and many more. You can also define new shows to download. It checks feeds from TorrentReactor, Mininova, TVRSS, The PirateBay, Mr. Twig, Isohunt, and MyBittorrent for new episodes of TV shows.

2. Torrent Pouncer - an automatic torrent downloader for periodic releases of TV shows, series, and similar. Contrary to popular RSS-based torrent downloaders, it searches various torrent search engines like Mininova and Pirate Bay. For user convenience, it keeps databases of downloaded torrents and associates them with shows and season and episode numbers.

3. TorrentSniff

So I’m quite familiar with how it is laid out and what it has to offer. Use the Fedora install guide for Anaconda I linked to above if you’re new to it as it might save you some time when installing Korora 21. Read more

How to run Linux and Chrome OS on your Chromebook

Chromebooks are pretty darn handy. Even some hardcore Windows users now acknowledge that a Chromebook might be just what you need for work. But, as great as Chromebooks are, and as much progress as Google has made in getting "Web-only" apps such as Google Docs to work offline, there are still times that you want an application that's only available off-line such as the LibreOffice office suite or the GIMP photo editor. For those times, it's darn handy to be able to run a Linux desktop on a Chromebook. Read more
