How to Install uTorrent on Linux Mint 15

Last updated: July 16, 2013

Here’s a beginner’s guide to install and setup uTorrent server on Linux Mint 15. There’s no command in tutorial, just a few clicks!

1.) First, download uTorrent server for Linux: You may check 32-bit or 64-bit by going to Start Menu -> System Tools -> System Settings -> System Info. Where “Distribution Linux Mint 15: olivia (i686)” means 32-bit. x86_64 means 64-bit system.


2.) Decompress the package in Downloads folder, then navigate to the extracted folder.


3.) Right-click on utserver and goto its Properties window. Make sure “Allow executing file as program” is checked.

4.) Before running the utserver, install ssl share libraries from Start Menu -> Software Manager.

install ssl shared libraries

5.) Now double-click on utserver file to start it. That’s right you see nothing happens because the server is running as a background program.

6.) Open your file browser and go to http://localhost:8080/gui/. Type:

username: admin
password: leave password empty



The latest Miro 6 is not available from the PPA repository for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, and Linux Mint 15 users. It can be fixed by installing from the old repository as well as the depencenies.
To do so, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal and follow the below steps:

1.) Miro 6 depends on libtorrent-rasterbar6 while the default is libtorrent-rasterbar7 in Ubuntu 13.04. So first download and install this package from the 12.10 Quantal’s repository:

Check 32-bit or 64-bit by Unity Dash -> search and open Details

1. For 32-bit, run this command to download the package:


2. For 64-bit, run command to download the package:


3. For both 32 and 64-bit, install the package and fix any dependency problem with 2 commands:

sudo dpkg -i libtorrent-rasterbar6_0.16.3-0ubuntu1_*.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

2.) Now add the Miro PPA repository.

1. Run command in terminal to add the ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pcf/miro-releases

2. Then go to Unity Dash -> Software & Updates -> Other Software tab, scroll down and highlight the line said “ raring main”. Then click on edit, change raring to precise after Destribution.


3.) Finally install Miro 6

Finally you can install Miro 6 by Synaptic Package Manager, or run this command in terminal:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install miro


UPDATE: Ubuntu 14.04 users, please read this post to install Miro 6


Adobe Air for Linux is no longer supported, but you can still install the version 2.6 on Ubuntu & Linux Mint with a little tweak.

If you’re running programs that are built on AIR, follow the below steps to install Adobe Air first.

1.) Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window, I’ll do the job by running a few commands in terminal.

2.) Download Adobe Air 2.6 for Linux via wget command, it’s about 15MB.


3.) Install this package for 64-bit system:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

4.) Now the important part is to create a symbolic link to your gnome keyring:

  • For 32-bit, run the below 2 commands one by one:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
  • For 64-bit, run this:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

5.) Now give executable permission to the downloaded .bin package:

chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

6.) Finally run it:


Follow the setup wizard, and done!

(Optional) To free up disk space, run below commands to remove downloaded package and the symbolic link you just created:

rm AdobeAIRInstaller.bin; sudo rm /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
