Vinagre and Transmission for Gutsy

I have a few updates regarding my Personal Package Archive:

My Vinagre VNC backport for Gutsy will make it into the official gutsy-backports repository if I get two successful test reports on bug #191077. So please download and test, if you are interested.
(See also my previous post: New Ubuntu Packages)

Also, I have the beta version of the upcoming 1.10 release of the Transmission Bittorrent Client in my PPA. I use the same packaging as the official Ubuntu versions. (As opposed to the ones you’ll get at getdeb.net)

If you don’t know Transmission yet: It’s a lightweight Bittorrent client, capable of downloading multiple Torrents simultaneously, throttling speeds, peer exchange and encrypted transfer (and more…). It will be the default Bittorrent client for Hardy.

In my opinion, it is a good replacement for Azureus, if you don’t need all the advanced stuff and don’t want a big java app hogging all your memory…

Get all the debs at my PPA.

  • You can install the vinagre package in Gutsy going to:


    and selecting Gutsy in the repositories link, because there is a problem with dependencies in the main deb package for this application.

    Best regards ;o)

  • Could you give some more detail on the dependency issues? (Are you having them installing the debs manually or via adding the sources lines in synaptic?)
