How to Install qbittorrent on Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy JellyFish

Follow the steps and commands to install qBittorrent on your Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy JellyFish using the terminal.

What is a qBittorrent client?

qBittorrent refers to a file sharing client that allows access to the BitTorrent network and participation in file sharing networks. The freeware represents an alternative to the popular uTorrent client.

It is a popular file sharing client mainly due to its small size and high download speed. The software also has a built-in RSS reader so it can be used to download files directly from RSS feeds.

Offers a wide range of compatibility in terms of operating systems, since qBittorrent works on Ubuntu (Linux), Windows and Mac OS. In addition, qBittorrent also offers a portable version, so an installation on the computer is no longer necessary.

The program provides the ability to perform multiple downloads simultaneously. Additionally, qBittorrent can work over a VPN (virtual private network) and proxy servers are also supported.

Another feature is the lack of complex functions and extensions that are not required by the majority of users. Moreover, the developers of qBittorrent want to enable intuitive operation.
