Install The Latest Deluge BitTorrent Client On Ubuntu 16.10

How to install the latest Deluge BitTorrent Client on Ubuntu 16.10 and Ubuntu 16.04 Systems. Install Deluge BitTorrent Client in Ubuntu, using PPA. Deluge is a fully-featured cross-platform BitTorrent client. Deluge contains the common features to BitTorrent clients such as Protocol Encryption, DHT, Local Peer Discovery (LSD), Peer Exchange (PEX), UPnP, NAT-PMP, Proxy support, Web seeds, global and per-torrent speed limits.

Deluge has been designed to run as both a normal standalone desktop application and as a client-server. In Thinclient mode a Deluge daemon handles all the BitTorrent activity and is able to run on headless machines with the user-interfaces connecting remotely from any other platform.

Deluge comes with three main user interfaces (UIs):

  1. GTK UI for the desktop
  2. Web UI for the browser
  3. Console UI for the command line.
