Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Vuze (ex Azureus), is a lightweight BitTorrent client having the normal functions of such a program: multiple downloads, queuing/prioritizing files, start/stop seeding options. The latest version available is Vuze 126.96.36.199 Beta 22, which has been released a while ago, coming with a new webui plugin that contains new functions for prioritizing the torrents. For more information about the latest release, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Vuze 188.8.131.52 Beta 22 on the most popular Linux systems, including Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, OpenSUSE, Mageia and OpenMandriva.
Because a portable version of Vuze 184.108.40.206 Beta 22 is available via the official site, using Vuze on Linux is easy. All you have to do is download the archive, extract it and link the launcher to /usr/bin/vuze, for an easier usage:
$ wget http://cf1.vuze.com/files/VuzeInstaller.tar.bz2
$ tar -xjvf VuzeInstaller.tar.bz2
$ sudo rm -rf /opt/vuze*
$ sudo mv vuze /opt/vuze220.127.116.11b22
$ sudo ln -sf /opt/vuze18.104.22.168b22/vuze /usr/bin/vuze
Next, to launch vuze just open the terminal, type “vuze” and hit enter.
