I thank both the gentlemen who replied and cleared the air for me.I was using bitcomet as my preferred torrent downloader when I had windows running and had achieved some high rank in the phalanx of downloaders on the bitcomet platform. Since my windows(vista) installation conked and cannot be installed again,I am using ubuntu 12.10. I guess I will have to wait for getting another windows machine till I rejoin bitcomet ranks.
I installed bitcomet 1.36 on ubuntu 12.10 through wine windows program loader.It does not work. I have some other programs like notepad ++ or foxit pdf reader installed which are working. I will appreciate if any solution is suggested.
