Several Issues on Linux
« on: August 26, 2017, 06:25:51 AM »
First off I really love this software and the engineering is great. Just flat great.
Today I reloaded my OS. It is a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.3 LTS and using Qbittorent
I use wireless on this OS as I did on last OS same Version. I just wanted to relead on a faster HardDrive
OK I can not get anything to search or download. Nothing. Says I have about  261 DHT Nodes so those are being found.
But Nothing on a search.  The network works on this thing as I am using it to type this note.

Before reloading the OS and eveything else and again it is the same OS same version All updates in stalled and rebooted.
So I am lost.
Also on the search Engene where it says update   a few weeks ago that stopped working. It still says it is temporaraly down. With a fresh install I am wondering is that is the issue???  Before I got to update the Search engion before IT went temporarly down and it installed a lot of updates.

So any help would be usefull
Thank you.

Bob, simply use the PPA version. No matter what Ubuntu you use. :)

These are the two real simple instructions you have to issue from your Terminal:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable
sudo apt-get update

In case it does not work, you can always go back too.
See this answer here:

Join the official qBittorrent Discord!
