* Transmission doesn't bundle toolbars, advertisements, twitter tools, or anything else.
* It doesn't hold some feaures back for a payware version.
* Its source code is available for anyone to review.
* Its website and forums have no third-party ads or tracking.

    Nice tuto!, but there? a missing command !

    apt-get install transmission

    Done !

    The command you say is missing is not necessary. Transmission is a standard bundled torrent downloader, so if the package hasn’t been removed the command upgrade should update the older transmission package to the newer version.

    Hmm – I’m with @mkleber on this one… running upgrade simply states:

    The following packages have been kept back:
    transmission-common transmission-gtk

    This from a default install of 10.10 – however…

    apt-get install transmission

    gives us:

    The following extra packages will be installed:
    libevent-2.0-5 transmission-common transmission-gtk
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    libevent-2.0-5 transmission

    And all the good goodness that comes with new packages 🙂
