Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may already know, Gtk-Gnutella is an open source, multi platform server/client for Gnutella, written on C and built by using the GTK libraries. It uses low CPU and only the configured bandwith and can be run without a GUI, inside a shell. The latest version available is Gtk-Gnutella 1.0, which comes with fixes and improvements. For more information, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Gtk-Gnutella 1.0 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna and Pear OS 8.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Gtk-Gnutella 1.0 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Elementary OS and Pear OS is easy. All you have to do is add the needed ppa, update the local repository index and install the gtk-gnutella package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zapman/gtkg
