Linux / Re: Updating/Uninstalling Compiled qbittorrent-nox
« on: May 19, 2019, 01:04:11 AM »
But wait, on Debian you can just use apt-pinning.

- you add both sid/testing and normal repos to apt.conf
- you use 'apt-get install qbittorrent -t sid' command to grab qBittorrent from sid
- it should just work

If it pulls too much dependencies or whatever, be careful, do not proceed. I didn't have trouble with it though.
Option B is simply to pull the Ubuntu .dsc files, and use pbuilder to build your personal own for Debian. (I don't even think you would need to modify much in the files to get it compile+run.)

Did you ask for an active port with NordVPN? I only used PIA, its an option in their client. On Windows, it's one box.
On Linux / OpenVPN, it's a bit more cumbersome.

(This is PIA, not Nord!)

Cafe lounge / [FIXED] PSA: Email woes
« on: May 14, 2019, 07:41:10 AM »
UPDATE: Email should be fixed.


Heads up! We have some email server trouble. Or... email service.
Whew, how do I post this without going into a rage-fueled rant?

Basically, we used SendGrid for a good while. They were a good service, we were happy, our emails went out. Win-win!
Until they decided to discontinue their pay-as-you-go service. So we had to look somewhere else.
Now, there were a few options.

- Shared hosting's email.

The forum runs from here, but you know, spammers register, people with wrong address register, we send out emails that bounce. It's not pretty sometimes. I do correct it from the logs, but I didn't want the shared hosting to breathe down my neck.
- Run my/our own server.
Eh, we do have the option to do this, but I opted not to since you have to monitor email logs, blacklists. Make sure not to end up with too many bounces, if you do you have to cull them. It's just.. sometimes troublesome. I mean it's easy if you operate a webshop, or a gaming community, whatever. But here, we get many spam accounts with addresses that just vanish once they spam. So that requires active monitoring.
- A different service.
This is what we went with. I went with Mailgun, since everyone recommended them. I did too, until now. I always had my personal data with them, I never had payment problems, I am not a criminal. Yet.

So what happened?
Just from one day to another, we got "suspended", and they asked me to verify the account.
Well, not verify, but these were the questions:
What types of emails will you be sending?
It's not like I haven't sent out thousands already...
Where do you source your database of email addresses?
Again, we have a forum in the website's name. But hey, it's okay.
Are all of your email addresses double-opt in?
0 spam reports in years. Uh, I guess.
What is your expected monthly volume of messages?
Again, it's not like we haven't been sending for years.

I did reply to these questions because I thought it's an automated system.
Well, nothing. I just got a reply, that they require even more, and more, and more data, verification, etc.

Very tl;dr:
- Mailgun is utter trash. DO NOT USE THEM. DO NOT RELY ON THEM. If you do, your site, community, webshop, whatever might just stop function from one day to another. Just imagine. And I am not kidding, this actually happened. It's ridiculous. It's not an issue they require verification at any day or time. But to randomly CLOSE an account AND start this bureaucratic process? No. That is NOT okay.
- We will be moving email service ASAP.
- I am sorry about all this. Wish I knew that Mailgun is trash.


Super weird, it works superb on my machine... (34 torrents loaded, but just yesterday had 200+ for test on 4.1.5, and upgraded to 4.1.6 without issue.)

Maybe favicon?

Uh, the torrent client downloads the files in the same way, like you end up with the very same files as other clients would.
The torrent you downloaded must have been compressed, corrupted or something.

You could post maybe a screenshot of the downloaded torrent content? Do a recheck in qBittorrent? (right click, force recheck)

Linux / Re: Recent version for CentOS
« on: April 30, 2019, 12:12:17 AM »
I mean it's not that hard... I think you can build a repo with OpenSUSE's Build Service. (Yes, for CentOS).
Question is... will all the components build using the old libraries?

Btw maybe stupid question, but any of you tried using Snap or Flatpak?

You probably have permission issues. I am like 99% sure.
Check the console output+logs.

Ps.: We can't exactly help with a niche OS + your own compiled version...

Suggestions / Re: remove googles spyware recaptcha from this site
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:08:44 AM »
If you write a new captcha engine and bundle it in an SMF plugin, we'll happily switch to that!
Donations for a full vBulletin or IPB license are also welcome. But wait, those are closed source. Dang. Uh.... we'll switch to pen+paper.

Ps.: Since the start of our forum, the most requested thing was to remove the registration captcha, as people couldn't fill it out. In fact, we lost so many registrations due to the fact people couldn't read the text. I mean I know I would just try over and over again, and get through within a minute. But apparently, people are not like that (not everyone is a techie).

Suggestions / Re: Can't read (and generally hate) captchas
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:07:22 AM »
Old topic but reply is: It's only required for the registration + first few posts.
Even like this we get plenty of spam traffic. :(

Suggestions / Re: Separate queue for downloading torrents
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:06:42 AM »
Not sure what's the problem here.
- active down: 20
- active up: 999
- max active: 999

thus, all my torrents seed, and only 20 are actively in download.

Suggestions / Re: Dark Theme
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:05:43 AM »
@Conscious_Fold i can guarantee you that is not the case. as stated i'm running the plata theme (plata-noir) to be specific and qbittorrent is not theming when it should. plata does theme everything else on the system. on a side note i'm running mint 19.1 64 bit, kernel 5.0.5.

It depends on the Qt css/theme/engine, not KDE theme.

Generic / Re: Sawtooth shaped download speed.
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:05:03 AM »

You sure that your HDD/storage/CPU/router can keep up?
I realize that the shown speeds ain't much, but if you do anything in the background...

My qBittorrent downloads with 130MB/s+ speeds constant. But, there is proper storage behind that, and a fast enough CPU.

LOL this task seems incredibly complex.

One solution I can think of....
- Create a new folder on ANY drive. Call it whatever. Example: "C:\a\"
- Junction ALL your torrent folders here.
- Make this your default qBittorrent folder.
- Add the torrents into qBittorrent.
- Done.
