Hello Linux Geeksters. I have previously written some tutorials with instructions on how to install qBittorrent, uTorrent or Torrent Search on Linux systems. In this article I will show you how to install Lince on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.
As you may know, Lince is a lightweight C++ / GTK torrent client, that uses the bittorrent protocol and gtkmm as an interface.
Because Lince is available via the GetDeb repository, installing it on Ubuntu and Linux Mint is easy. Follow this steps for a successful installation:
Download and install the GetDeb repo:
$ wget http://archive.getdeb.net/install_deb/getdeb-repository_0.1-1~getdeb1_all.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i getdeb-repository_0.1-1~getdeb1_all.deb
Update the local repo index:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install lince
