I have Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope 64bit and wanted to give Google Chrome Browser a try to see what it feels like to be running Google Chrome OS (which will be based on Linux and run Google Chrome Browser).
UPDATE Nov 21: Just adding the repository:
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable main
will let you install Google Chrome right from Synaptic.
UPDATE: Now I have Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10) alpha 4 and same works for Karmic too.
Transmission is the default torrent client with Ubuntu. However, I love ktorrent because of the various features it provides. As I use ubuntu and KDE based softwares require kdelibs to be installed, I usually go for alternatives and I found deluge to be a great alternative for ktorrent. It provides similar features as ktorrent.
It can be installed directly via Synaptic but for the latest version, just type in the following in the terminal window. The following instructions apply to Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope).
