Bit Che for Wine - Mac OSX & Ubuntu / Re: Bit Che on GNU/Linux

The wine detection works and overall this one works perfectly! The Save Torrent As works as expected.

Thanks so much for trying it out as well!

It might be my fault by not installing it in a fresh wine prefix. I will try it again tonight!

1. KTorrent
2. I have not checked this temp folder, I was looking for it but didn't know where it was. I will also check this.
3. View Torrent Details does indeed work
4. Open Torrent shows a progress bar and then nothing happens. I also tried Save Torrent As (I think the words were something along those lines) but it never gives me the folder selection window.
5. I will also check this.

edit: Played around with it a bit more. I install Bit Che to a fresh wine prefix so there is nothing else there. I did a "Save Torrent As" and it shows a status bar for a second and then disappears. Same thing, with no window to choose where to put the .torrent file. I also checked 'Application Data/Convivea/Bit_Che/3/', while I do see some files in there nothing that looks like a .torrent and no temp folder, only languages and scripts folder.

Bit Che status bar does not say [wine] next to it, just Bit Che. When I click Open Torrent With it says Synology, Trans. Remote GUI, and uTorrent Web. Any idea where it could be pulling those names from? I don't have any of those applications installed.

Probably the last thing for me to check is what you mentioned about winebrowser. I will have to look further into this.

Hi all,

It has been quite some time since I've been around here. Recently I have found a need for Bit Che again, so I decided to stop by. I'm very glad to see everything is still running well and there has been an updated version of Bit Che.

I use Linux almost exclusively now so I used WINE to get it running and wanted to share my experience. It works almost flawlessly out of the box other than being able to save torrents directly from the application. For now, you have to follow the URL and then get the .torrent from the webpage. For diagnostic purposes this was Bit Che 3.0 build 10 with WINE 1.7.31 on openSUSE 13.1 x86-64.

I applied to be maintainer for Bit Che on the Wine HQ AppDB so check back here for future updates or for your own reports. I see chip has already done the honors of starting the page but looks like the latest tests are quite old:

If you use Bit Che on Linux please report your failures or success in this thread and/or on the AppDB page! Anyone can submit a report there and it helps everyone who is trying to use Bit Che on Linux!

This response is a little late but perhaps you will still find it useful. Computer Engineering will have a heavier focus on hardware while CS will have heavier focus on software.

The salaries and job prospects are generally better in CE.

The math requirements are fairly heavy for both but in different ways. in CE there is more emphasis on control and system engineering, state-space systems, linear algebra, things like that. CS has more emphasis on logic and mathematics theory.

I gave up on uTorrent quite some time ago once they started including spyware and ads.

qBittorent or KTorrent are great options. There are plenty of free and open source options available. No reason to use something with spyware.

While has kept the demonoid community alive temporarily, the original demonoid is back!

I think registration is open but if you need an invite let me know. They should be dime a dozen.

Yes I use it on my Linux machines. It doesn't seem to bad, but the slight changes in interface take some getting used to.

After about 10 years of usage I have finally ditched Opera almost completely since they do not make a Linux version. I still have the new one installed on my windows machine but I'm trying to migrate toward Firefox 100%.

The truth is, nobody really knows. It is a highly controversial issue.

I still have my account but I don't really see the point of google+.

I like the concept of circles and some of the organization but I just don't see the room for another social networking site right now. Facebook is still king (as much as I hate it, but I actually have a love-hate relationship with facebook).

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- A proposed new bill intended to combat online piracy has sparked a giant backlash from big tech companies, including Google and Facebook, who say the proposals are far too strict and rife with unintended consequences.

This has been all over the news lately, I'm sure some of your Americans have heard about it. I am very disgusted that something like this would even begin to show up in American legislature. I think it already failed to pass, so hopefully we won't hear much more about it after today.
