How did I not learn of this sooner! I might have been lazy with Bit Che but still  :down:

This is what you do:

1. install qbittorent
2. install jackett as a service for Windows:
3. in qbittorent, enable the search engine (from the view-menu) and follow the installation instructions
4. in qbittorent, go to the search tab
5. in the qbittorent search tab, choose Update. This will download some search plugins. Disable them all except for jackett (you won't need the other ones with jacket)
6. create the file
Code: [Select]
jackett.json in
Code: [Select]
%localappdata%\qBittorrent\nova3\engines\Follow the instructions from the chapter "Configuration File" (
7. go to the jackett UI:
8. in the jackett UI, choose Add Indexer
9. set the filter to only show public trackers
10. (sigh) click each tracker so that its checkbox is ON. There are about 70 clicks needed
11. click the Add Selected button when you're done (bottom of the page) and wait 10 minutes or so - this will take a while!

12. BONUS: install - this shouldn't be needed but it feels good to have someone do captcha's for you :) You can check if it is working here:

Handy links you shouldn't need:
DEFINITELY don't use this:

Now you can use qbittorent to search the best Linux movies, Unix hits or Ubuntu DVDs  :angel:
