Updating/Uninstalling Compiled qbittorrent-nox
« on: February 27, 2019, 08:16:14 PM »

I run qbittorrent-nox on an ARM board. As my distro only includes an older version of qbittorrent-nox (3.x, which has a weak webUI compared to 4.x), I had to compile it for my system.

I am currently on 4.1.3, how can I "upgrade" my compiled installation to 4.1.5 (or any other other future versions)? Is it possible to make the update transparent, so all my settings and saved torrents are not affected? 

If it's not possible to do a "transparent" update, how can I cleanly remove my compiled 4.1.3 installation? I was told that compilation scripts sometimes have an "uninstall" function, but I couldn't find any info on this in the wiki documents.

Go to
Scroll down to the bottom to "Other Binary Packages".
Choose "Linux"
Choose your distro.
If not in the "official" distro, instructions will show how to add the qbittorrent PPA to your system to get the latest "official" version.
Stable = official current stable release
Unstable = currently in development version
