    Search using the word "torrent" in your Package Management application. I use Ktorrent in KDE, or you can use "transmission" in Gnome. Open the app, point it at a torrent, then activate it. Simple as that. If you've used utorrent, it works the same in Linux.

    There are a number of good bittorrent clients for Linux. I like ktorrent.
  • I'm going to jump in and second Transmission.

    It's an awesome client, also has a QT and GTK version so it should work regardless of your desktop environment.

    Ktorrent works wonderfully here :)
