     4= General = 
    45== Is Deluge Free? Can I get the source? == 
    56 
    67Yes, 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 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.

    5456Note: do not do this on a public ip , use the webui for unsecure networks. 
    5557 
    56 == I upgraded from 0.5 and plugin x is missing == 
    57 1.0 is a rewrite, all old 0.5 plugins have to be rewritten. 
     58 
     59== How do I make deluge connect to a different daemon? == 
     60By default, deluge is in classic mode: the daemon and gtk ui are linked together. 
     61To disable classic mode: 
     62 1. "Preferences" 
     63 1. "Interface" 
     64 1. Untick "Enable" under "Classic Mode". 
     65 1. Restart deluge. 
     66 
     67== How do I stop deluge from killing the daemon when I quit the GTK UI? ==

     100You need to install SVG support. On Debian/Ubuntu, the package is librsvg2-common 
     101 
     102 
     103== How do I set Deluge as my default Bittorrent program? == 
     104 
     105On Windows, the installer will ask you if you want Deluge to be your default Bittorrent program. 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.

    85110== The files tab shows a different percentage-completed than the torrent == 
    86111 
     
    90115Seeds 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).

    94 To disable classic mode: 
    95  1. "Preferences" 
    96  1. "Interface"

    128143Force recheck discards all incomplete pieces. 
    129144 
    130 == Can Deluge use blocklists such as SafePeer or PeerGuardian? == 
    131  
    132 Yes. 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:

    134 1. http://www.bluetack.co.uk/config/nipfilter.dat.gz (Emule) 
    135  
    136145 
    137146== Does deluge support Initial/Super Seed? == 
     
    144153No 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. 
    145154 
    146 == How do I set Deluge as my default Bittorrent program? == 
    147  
    148 On Windows, the installer will ask you if you want Deluge to be your default Bittorrent program.

    149  
    150155== Does Deluge support multi-tracker torrents? == 
    151156 
     
    157162Deluge uses sparse-files(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparse_file) for full allocation, the compact allocation option only usefull for windows-file systems. 
    158163 
    159 == Deluge won't start with a “gobject.GError: Unrecognised image file format” error. ==

    162164 
    163165== Which ports should I use? == 
     
    165167The 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.
