A BitTorrent client program called Transmission is already installed by default in Fedora. You can open it in any of the following ways:

  • enter following in gnome shell

  • press Alt+F2 and enter

  • open terminal and enter

    transmission-gtk >& /dev/null &

    or simply

Transmission is not installed by default in Fedora 23.

I don't see an answer to the user's question, only an alternative. This is like asking where hot chocolate can be found and being told where to get hot coffee. The user didn't ask about Transmission. Answering in this manner wastes the user's time as well as those seeking to find out how to install uTorrent in Linux. I'm sorry for being so harsh, but I can't begin to account how many times I've come across answers to questions that were not asked in efforts to find answers to the questions that were. If you don't have an answer to the user's question, please refrain from answering.

You can't run utorrent client on linux, because there's no linux version for it. You have some options to overcome this:

  1. Install utorrent server;

More info here

  1. Try and run the portable version of utorrent through wine or crossover office;

More info here

  1. Install other torrent clients as suggested, i recommend transmission or ktorrent.

Although the links refer to Ubuntu the same principle apply for Fedora.

Thank You sir, works perfectly. Looks better than Transmission. Installed both Deluge and Transmission but loved the installation offered by Deluge.

Simply go to your Terminal as an Admin and type: sudo yum install deluge

That is all you need to do to install Deluge package on Fedora. Incredible. Beautiful. Love Fedora.
