Tribler file sharing client

Tribler is an application which helps you find, share, download, search for pictures, music, videos and so on. In other words its more like a media player integrated within a torrent client. I have tried it out, and frankly, the search and download function is pretty good. The integrated search is quite exhaustive, eg. take a look at the results Tribler came up with when I searched for “Ubuntu” (pic in the screenshots below).

It has Windows, Mac and Linux versions of its software. Here are a few screenshots of the application:

(If you need more and simpler information alongwith screenshots about how to add a repository, you should go through the details given here : https://exploreubuntu.wordpress.com/2010/04/18/adding-repositories/)

Now go to the Terminal (Applications > Terminal) and type the following:

sudo apt-get update

Next type the following in the Terminal:

sudo apt-get install tribler

Thats it. Tribler will be available in the Internet menu.
