how do i install deluge client w/ web ui in Rpi (not the headless server type since it's all i can see when i google) my os is the raspbian wheezy, still a noob here :)

  • Not sure to understand your question. Do you want to display from your RPi a web UI provided by a deluge server? Or you want a BT server on your RPi that provides a web UI, and then display the web UI from another computer? Jan 4, 2013 at 20:07
  • somewhat of the latter question

  • It seems like what psyko really needs is a file server, so he can retrieve his downloaded files. I use samba for this as it allows me to connect from Windows 7 via the Windows file manager. The pie makes a great low power seedbox and file server in this manner.

You can simply install deluge from the terminal using the package manager;

sudo apt-get install deluge

You then need to start the daemon;

sudo service deluged start

Then to interact with the daemon using the web ui you must start that;

sudo service deluge-web start

Then browse to https://localhost:8112. The password should be deluge.

  • im sorry for the question being not understandable anyways u may have answered my question, another question though, how do i transfer the settings and torrents to my local deluge(my pc), for short id like to see my torrents in my pc while my RPi downloads

  • You can use any client to view that deluge daemon. Browse to the https://address:8112 where address is the IP address of the Pi on the network.

  • what i mean is not from the browser but the local application form of Deluge. i.e. "C:/Apps/Deluge/Deluge.exe"

  • Not as far as I know. You can do that with Transmission though (a different torrent client). What's wrong with using the browser?

@psyko666 if you are still looking for an answer, the following guide shows how to connect to a deluge-daemon running on your RPI from a Deluge client on another machine.



short answer: if you have deluge client runiing on your pc .. turn off classic mode , if deluge is running properly on your pi , you will see it as an option , u=you can then conect it up that way .. you might have to turn on the option for allow remote conetion for the deaom though the web up first
