How to install deluged on debian?

I looked at many tutorials including the ones on, but they all seem to be obsolete or at least very-different from what I am expecting.

All begins with

Code: Select all

apt-get install deluged
in testing on Jessie so I've got deluged 1.3.13.

I noticed

Code: Select all

created the user

Code: Select all

and a

Code: Select all

script. All right so I just started the daemon with `sudo service deluged start`, then stopped it.

I was expecting to get some configuration files in

Code: Select all

, but the folder is still empty. I don't want to do

Code: Select all

$ deluged && killall -9 deluged
` because I don't want the config files to be created for my user. `apt-get` created a bunch of configuration, so I would like to use what it already installed for me.

Unfortunately I still did not find how to properly install deluged on my raspdebian.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Nowox,

Due to the lack of update on the stable repo from Debian I opted for a compil from source for both libtorrent/Deluge. Be aware the last version of libtorrent (1.1.X) is not supported in 1.3.13, I'm currently running 1.0.9 w/o issue. I guess later 1.0.X may be tried.

(pay attention to comment for RPI/Debian)
Libtorrent from source :
Debian from source

And finally what most concerns your setup: systemd setup with dedicated user

This last part will enable to you have a proper systemd with a config file in the home folder of the created user (/var/lib/deluge). Adapt the line fir any custom usage you want of course.

You can use the Deluge PPA, for jessie use the trusty repo.

Those included debian init scripts are outdated, although should work, the best solution is to remove them and use systemd.
