Next, run the commands below to extract uTorrent files to the /opt directory.

sudo tar xvzf utorrent-server-3.0-25053.tar.gz -C /opt/

Then run the commands below to change the permission on uTorrent-server folder.

sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/

Next, run the commands below to link uTorrent server to the /user/bin directory.

sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/utserver /usr/bin/utserver

Finally, run the commands below to start uTorrent.

utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/

If you get an error about libssl.so package missing, run the commands below to install it, then try starting it again.

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386
