Install latest transmissionbt on debian wheezy by ppa

wget -c https://gist.github.com/voyeg3r/5520774/raw/ -O /usr/sbin/add-apt-repository
chmod o+x /usr/sbin/add-apt-repository

add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa
aptitude update
aptitude search transmission
apt-get install transmission-daemon transmission-common transmission-cli


  1. Nice method :)
    But 2.6 instead of last 2.8x, so any method to have "precise" PPA instead of oneiric or other method ?

    Thanks :)

  2. Trying to do the same thing, I want a newer version for the bug fixes, I have 2.5 and 2.8+ is out, I did find this https://we.riseup.net/debian/installing-testing-packages-on-stable
    kind-of-a pain to deal with, didn't try it yet, thinking about trying to find another BT client other than transmission, one that has there own repo, so I can jest add it repo and the gpg key the apt-get install and be done always having the latest soft.
    I'm really starting not to like Debian the "stable" packages aren't always "stable" read the transmission point release change logs, I don't get were there getting the word "stable" from, it's not jest transmission it's everything really, wish Debian had something like a rolling release like openSuse hummm
