UBUNTU – Azureus + Vuze: have a good torrent!

Posted by thio4linux on January 8, 2010

I’ve tried in this days a new good apps for dowload .torrent files.

Azureus + Vuze is a great combination to find whatever you want on the net!

Azureus is a BitTorrent client (BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file distribution tool).
It offers multiple torrent downloads, queuing/priority systems (on torrents and files), start/stop seeding options and instant
access to numerous pieces of information about your torrents.

Vuze is a multimedia BitTorrent client based on Azureus and intended for DVD and HD video.

In this way you can search what you want in a very simple way…

Installing this 2 apps is so simle. On your ubuntu type:

sudo apt-get install azureus

and this install also vuze on your PC.

In oter way if you want to have the last vuze version you can find it here.

The interface is like this:

vuze interface
vuze interface

in the upper part these the search button, on the left the menu with download, upload, RSS, etc. of your .torrent files.

It’s very simple to use and nice to see… also available for Windows and MacOs system.

Have a Good Torrent!!!

Amsn 0.97.2 + Antialiasing

Posted by thio4linux on August 13, 2008

August 3, 2008 – the last version of Amsn: 0.97.2

everyone can download and install the last version of amsn from the official site, but when you use for the first time this application you’ll see a program without antialias.

If you want to solve this problem you have to reinstall the right version of tcl and tk libraries and the reinstall amsn 0.97.2.
here you can find the link to download them:
amsn 0.97.2

Now, first of all, you have to remove from your system the tcl and tk libraries installed before; you can do it using Synaptic or typing on your shell:
sudo apt-get remove tcl* tk*

Install of the new version of tcl/tk lib:
unrar the downloaded files and enter in the directory unix, the install it typing:
sudo ./configure && sudo make && sudo make install

Compile Amsn:
enter in the directory of ams: cd amsn-0.97.2
and then install amsn:
./configure –prefix=/usr –with-tcl=/usr/local/lib –with-tk=/usr/local/lib
sudo make && sudo make install

If yuo have this error: /usr/local/bin/amsn: line 3: exec: wish: not found type:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/wish8.5 /usr/local/bin/wish

Conky on my Gutsy

Posted by thio4linux on November 2, 2007

…a light weight system monitor!!!

Conky is a system monitor that run on your desktop or on in a windows like every other program. Maybe you know karamba that is a very good app but conky is very light and easily configurable.

Download Conky from the repo: (sudo apt-get install Conky) or look at the procedure from the official site:

Then put the configuration file in your home:
sudo zcat /usr/share/doc/conky-1.4.0-r1/conkyrc.sample.gz ~/.conkyrc(subs 1.4.0-r1 with your version).

Now look at the variable page on this site:
and at the setting file here:

Now you can configure your Conky with the config file: kate ~/.conkyrc
I’ve found a problem with the desktop icons when conky referehses. If you have the same problem modify .conkyrc in this way:
own_window 1
own_window_type override
own_window_transparent 1

this my conky:


my conkyrc: .conky.odt
(dowload the file and rename it .conkyrc… then put it on your home and lauch conky)

Tasty menu – another k-menu

Posted by thio4linux on October 10, 2007

are you tired of the usual k-menu??? Try Tasty Menu

Download the last version

then : sudo dpkg -i tastymenu*

i think that it will integrate in your system in a good way even if it’s maybe so big for a desktop…
