Rtorrent + Rutorrent Auto Install Script by Patrick Kerwood

http://LinuxBloggen.dk/

This is script is no longer maintained and there will not be a release for Debian 9, because of the fabulous container technology that is available in this modern time. If you haven't alrady become familiar with this technology, you might as well begin now. Developers world wide are releasing more and more products as containers, as is my Rutorrent script.

Containers just make is easier for everyone.

Manual install

These are Bash scripts to ease the installation of rtorrent, rutorrent + plugins.

Debian Wheezy The Wheezy script is of course developed for Wheezy but should run just fine on Ubuntu 13.04 and 14.04.

Debian Jessie The Jessie script was adapted for the new default init system. Should run fine on systems that feature systemd (including Ubuntu 15.04+).

Please use systemctl start rtorrent and systemctl stop rtorrent instead of the service command.

Raspbian Wheezy Credit for the Raspbian script goes to miracle091, good work mate.

What the scripts do In the installation process you have to choose a system user to run rtorrent. Also you will get the opportunity of installing a total of 46 plugins. See list further down. The script add a init script that makes rtorrent start, at a possible reboot, in the given username's screen/tmux session. Use "service rtorrent-init start" and "service rtorrent-init stop" to start and stop rtorrent respectively.
