HOWTO: install qBittorrent backports from a repository.

Postby stevepusser » 2017-09-25 20:28

I've been building these for a few months, so decided to put a how-to here. Just upgraded to to 3.3.16 bugfix release. My repo also has a more recent libtorrent-rasterbar "engine" than Debian, so be aware that will also upgrade.

https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... bittorrent

Simplifying the directions for Stretch:

As root or with sudo:
Code: Select all
echo 'deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser:/qbittorrent/Debian_9.0/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/qbittorrent.list


As standard user:

Code: Select all
rm -f Release.key
wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser:qbittorrent/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key


As root or with sudo:

Code: Select all
apt-key add - < Release.key
apt-get update


You can now install or upgrade qbittorrent. Jessie user can follow the same instructions, but will have to change the "9.0" to "8.0".

Just updated to qBittorrent 4.0.2 for Stretch. Can't be built on Jessie, unfortunately.
