     3= General = 
     4 
     5== Is Deluge Free? Can I get the source? == 
     6 
     7Yes, Deluge is Free Software, as defined by the Free Software Foundation, and is released under the GPL, giving our users complete freedom. The source code is available on the [wiki:Download download section] of our site. Our GPL nature allows you to be 100% sure that our program will never “spy” on your activities. Closed-source !BitTorrent clients cannot make that same claim.

     9== How to start the various user-interfaces  == 
     10 
     11Gtk: 
     12 
     13{{{ 
     14deluge 
     15}}} 
     16Console: 
     17 
     18{{{ 
     19deluge --ui null 
     20}}} 
     21 
     22or 
     23 
     24{{{ 
     25deluge --ui console 
     26}}} 
     27 
     28Web: 
     29 
     30{{{ 
     31deluge --ui web 
     32}}} 
     33 
     34Go to http://localhost:8112/ 
     35default-password = "deluge" 
     36 
     37If you are using deluge only as a server or without gui on that machine you can change ~/.config/deluge/ui.conf to set your default. 
     38 
     39== Where does Deluge store its settings? == 
     40 
     41=== Linux === 
     42 
     43{{{ 
     44~/.config/deluge/ 
     45}}} 
     46 
     47=== Windows === 
     48 
     49{{{ 
     50%APPDATA%\deluge\ 
     51}}} 
     52 
     53== How do I restore all settings to default? == 
     54 
     55If you don't care about losing your current torrents then delete everything in Deluge's settings folder (see above for location). 
     56 
     57If you do want to keep your current torrents then delete everything except for the state folder. 
     58 
     59= Bittorrent = 
     60 
     61== The files tab shows a different percentage-completed than the torrent == 
     62 
     63The files tab will only show percentages based on completed pieces while the main view will show total completed including incomplete pieces. 
     64 
     65== What do all those numbers in parentheses mean? == 
     66 
     67|| '''Field''' || '''#''' || '''(#)''' || 
     68|| Seeders || Number of connected seeders || Total number of seeders || 
     69|| Peers || Number of connected peers || Total number of peers || 
     70|| Downloaded || Total amount downloaded || Total amount downloaded this session || 
     71|| Uploaded || Total amount uploaded || Total amount uploaded this session || 
     72 
     73== Seeding torrents have no queue position! Why? == 
     74 
     75Seeds use something called "seed rank" to determine which should be active and which should be queued.  The seed rank is determined by the number of seed cycles a torrent has completed.  Torrents with fewer completed seed cycles are prioritized for seeding.  A seed cycle is completed when a torrent meets either the share ratio limit (uploaded bytes / downloaded bytes), the share time ratio (time seeding / time downloading) or seed time limit (time seeded). 
     76 
     77== What bandwidth settings should I use? == 
     78 
     79Start with the following: 
     80||Maximum Connections||200|| 
     81||Maximum Download Speed (Kib/s)||-1|| 
     82||Maximum Upload Speed (Kib/s)||80% of upload speed|| 
     83||Maximum Upload Slots||4|| 
     84||Maximum Half-Open Connections||-1|| 
     85||Maximum Connection Attempts per Second||20|| 
     86 
     87If you're using Windows XP*: 
     88||Maximum Half-Open Connections||8|| 
     89 
     90If you're using Windows Vista*: 
     91||Maximum Half-Open Connections||4|| 
     92 
     93You can then tweak those settings to suit your connection. 
     94 
     95Note: if you do not know your upload speed, you can go to http://speedtest.net and divide the number it says by 8. 
     96 
     97* If you have Deluge setup as a [wiki:UserGuide/ThinClient ThinClient] then this is the OS that the daemon is running on. 
     98 
     99== Deluge sometimes creates files that I didn't ask it to download. Why? == 
     100 
     101Deluge handles files as pieces, not as individual files. This gets tricky, as sometimes the same piece is shared between multiple files. So if you tell Deluge to download a file, it'll download all of the pieces within that file, and if one of those pieces is shared with another file, that file will also be created, although not necessarily entirely downloaded. 
     102 
     103== I lost data on force recheck, Why? == 
     104 
     105Force recheck discards all incomplete pieces. 
     106 
     107== Does Deluge support Initial/Super Seed? == 
     108 
     109Not yet, but it will be added in the future when libtorrent 0.15 is released. 
     110 
     111== Does Deluge have an embedded tracker? == 
     112 
     113No and it probably never will. We want to be the best !BitTorrent client around, and to do that we need to focus on just being a client. 
     114 
     115== Does Deluge support multi-tracker torrents? == 
     116 
     117Yes it does. Also, you can edit the trackers associated with a torrent by right-clicking on a torrent within Deluge, and clicking on “Edit Trackers.” 
     118 
     119== What is the difference between full allocation and compact allocation? == 
     120 
     121Compact allocation only allocates as much storage as it needs to keep the pieces downloaded so far. This means that pieces will be moved around to be placed at their final position in the files while downloading (to make sure the completed download has all its pieces in the correct place). In full allocation, the entire space that a file needs is allocated as soon as one piece of that file is downloaded, thus decreasing fragmentation.  
     122 
     123We suggest that our users use full allocation. 
     124 
     125Deluge uses sparse-files(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparse_file) for full allocation, the compact allocation option is only useful on windows-file systems. 
     126 
     127== Selective downloading isn't working. How come? == 
     128 
     129Selective downloading requires full allocation. [[BR]] 
     130Make sure that you are not using compact allocation. [[BR]] 
     131See above for an explanation between the two. 
     132 
     133== Which ports should I use? == 
     134 
     135The official ports for Bittorrent are 6881-6889, but most ISPs block or at least throttle those ports, so users are encouraged to use a port range of something between 49152 and 65535. 
     136 
     137== Deluge uses random ports instead of selected one, why? == 
     138 
     139Click Apply after changing the port. 
     140 
     141Deluge will pick a random port if the chosen port is not available.  
     142 
     143Run "netstat" to check if the port is free. 
     144 
     145== What does "Auto Managed" do? == 
     146 
     147An "auto managed" torrent, is a torrent managed by deluge. 
     148This means that it obeys deluge's queue settings. 
     149By disabling "auto managed", a torrent will become active (i.e. start downloading/uploading). 
     150It will still be be bound by the stop ratio though. 
     151 
     152Note: All active torrents (including those not "auto managed") are counted in the total active queue settings. This means that if the total number of active torrents ("auto managed" and not) exceed the limit for total active torrents in the queue settings, deluge will automatically queue any "auto managed" torrents until the limit is no longer exceeded. 
     153 
     154== Does Deluge have an equivalent to "Force Start"? == 
     155 
     156Deluge has "auto managed" torrents which are similar, see above for details. 
     157 
     158To make a torrent no longer "auto managed": 
     159 1. Select the torrent in question. 
     160 1. Select the options tab. 
     161 1. Unselect "Auto Managed". 
     162 
     163= Plugins = 
     164 
     165== I upgraded from 0.5 and plugin x is missing == 
     166 
     1671.0 was a rewrite, all old 0.5 plugins have to be rewritten. 
     168 
     169The webui is not a plugin anymore, see : http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/Faq#Howtostartthevarioususer-interfaces 
     170 
     171Torrent-Notification is builtin in the future 1.1 (will be moved to a plugin) 
     172 
     173== Can Deluge use blocklists such as !SafePeer or !PeerGuardian? == 
     174 
     175Yes. Enable the “Blocklist” plugin. Currently this plugin can handle !PeerGuardian (binary and text), !SafePeer and Emule lists. !PeerGuardian *7zip format files are not supported*. Generally !PeerGuardian files come in 7zip format, so you'll need to extract them first and then feed Deluge the plain text file. Files may be specified as URLs or locations on the local filesystem. Here are some suggested blocklists: 
     176 
     177 1. http://www.deluge-torrent.org/blocklist/pipfilter.dat.gz (Emule)[[BR]] 
     178 1. http://www.deluge-torrent.org/blocklist/nipfilter.dat.gz (Emule) 
     179 
     180== Where is the scheduler plugin? What are the alternatives for the missing scheduler plugin? == 
     181 
     182There is no scheduler plugin for 1.0 yet. 
     183 
     1841.0 : use cron + this script: http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/ticket/382#comment:4 [[BR]]

     187= Console = 
     188 
     189== How do I connect the console UI to a daemon on a non-default port ? == 
     190 
     191{{{ 
     192$ deluge -u console 
     193>>> connect localhost 12345 
     194}}} 
     195 
     196= Daemon = 
     197 
     198== Why is deluge still listed in my task manager even after I close it ? == 
     199 
     200You closed the UI, but you did not close the daemon. 
     201Choose "Quit & Shutdown Daemon" to close both Daemon and GtkUI. 
     202 
     203== How do I only start the daemon ? == 
     204 
     205{{{ 
     206deluged

     235== How do I stop the daemon ? == 
     236 
     237{{{ 
     238killall deluged 
     239}}} 
     240 
     241Deluge accepts the SIGTERM signal and cleanly shuts down. 
     242 
     243== I can't connect to the daemon from another machine == 
     244 
     245 1. Configure the daemon to allow remote connections 
     246 1. Configure [wiki:UserGuide/Authentication Authentication] 
     247 1. Restart the daemon. 
     248 
     249See [wiki:UserGuide/ThinClient ThinClient] for more information on remote GTK UI 
     250 
     251== How do I make deluge connect to a different daemon? == 
     252 
     253By default, deluge is in classic mode: the daemon and gtk ui are linked together. 
     254To disable classic mode: 
     255 1. "Preferences" 
     256 1. "Interface" 
     257 1. Untick "Enable" under "Classic Mode". 
     258 1. Restart deluge. 
     259See [wiki:UserGuide/ThinClient ThinClient] for more information on remote GTK UI 
     260 
     261== How do I stop deluge from killing the daemon when I quit the GTK UI? == 
     262 
     263See above. 
     264 
     265= Web UI = 
     266 
     267== How do I use https? == 
     268 
     269=== 1.1 and newer === 
     270 
     271 1. Create (self-signed) ssl certificates: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html#selfcert 
     272 
     273 ==== Windows ==== 
     274 
     275 1. Put deluge.cert.pem and deluge.key.pem in %APPDATA%\deluge\ssl\ 
     276 
     277 ==== Linux ==== 
     278 
     279 1. Put deluge.cert.pem and deluge.key.pem in ~/.config/deluge/ssl/ 
     280 
     281 ==== ALL ==== 
     282 
     283 1. Enable https in the webui config. 
     284 1. Restart the webui 
     285 
     286= Installing = 
     287 
     288== How do I install 1.1 ? == 
     289 
     290['Installing'] 
     291 
     292== How do I install 1.1 SVN ? == 
     293 
     294First you need to install the necessary dependencies. In Ubuntu and Debian, do this: 
     295 
     296{{{ 
     297#!sh 
     298$ sudo apt-get install g++ make python-all-dev python-all python-dbus \ 
     299python-gtk2 python-notify python-setuptools librsvg2-common python-xdg \ 
     300python-support subversion libboost-dev libboost-python-dev \ 
     301libboost-iostreams-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-date-time-dev \ 
     302libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-serialization-dev libssl-dev zlib1g-dev 
     303}}} 
     304Next you need to get the latest revision from SVN and build/install it: 
     305{{{ 
     306#!sh 
     307$ svn co http://svn.deluge-torrent.org/trunk deluge # for development version 
     308$ svn co http://svn.deluge-torrent.org/branches/1.1.0_RC deluge # for 1.1.x stable 
     309$ cd deluge 
     310$ sudo rm  -fr /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/deluge-1.1* 
     311$ python setup.py build 
     312$ sudo python setup.py install 
     313}}} 
     314If you have already checked the source out and simply want to update your current tree, then do the following in the deluge directory: 
     315{{{ 
     316#!sh 
     317$ svn up 
     318$ sudo rm  -fr ./build #only needed if libtorrent was changed. 
     319$ python setup.py build 
     320$ sudo python setup.py install 
     321}}} 
     322 
     323== Does Deluge have its own repository? == 
     324 
     325There is an unofficial Ubuntu repository hosted at launchpad: 
     326{{{ 
     327deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/deluge-team/ubuntu <distribution> main universe 
     328}}} 
     329where <distribution> is one of the following: feisty, gutsy, hardy, intrepid or jaunty. 
     330As this is unofficial, it could at times not have the latest version and the quality cannot be guaranteed. 
     331 
     332== How do I set Deluge as my default !BitTorrent program? == 
     333 
     334On Windows, the installer should do this automatically. On Linux/Unix (GNOME), right-click on a torrent file, click on properties, click on the "open with" tab. Is deluge listed there? If so, select it to be your default, if not, click on "add", then click on "use custom command". Insert /usr/bin/deluge and click add. 
     335 
     336= Troubleshooting = 
     337 
     338== Deluge won't start! What should I do? == 
     339 
     340Sometimes deluge's settings get corrupted and need to be reset. 
     341 
     342See [wiki:Faq#HowdoIrestoreallsettingstodefault] 
     343 
     344== Deluge won't start with a "!ImportError: No module named pkg_resources" error. == 
     345 
     346You need to install setuptools. 
     347 
     348== Deluge won't start with a "!ImportError: No module named libtorrent" error. == 
     349 
     350You need to install libtorrent. 
     351 
     352== Deluge won't start with a “gobject.GError: Unrecognised image file format” error. == 
     353 
     354You need to install SVG support. On Debian/Ubuntu, the package is librsvg2-common. 
     355 
     356== Deluge isn't working! What should I do? == 
     357 
     358The best thing is to provide us with a debug log of deluged and/or deluge (depending if the error seems to be related to the daemon and/or to a UI). 
     359 
     360If you are on Windows, the debug logs are located in your [wiki:Faq#WheredoesDelugestoreitssettings settings folder] under the names "deluged.log" and "deluge.log". 
     361 
     362If you are in Linux, see [wiki:Faq#HowdoIstartthedaemonwithloggingenabled] 
     363 
     364If you are pasting the log on the forums, please use the [code]![/code] tags. 
     365 
     366If you are pasting the log on IRC, please use http://dpaste.com or http://pastebin.com or something similar.
