Description:

Servicemenu for downloading with BitTorrent in a console tab.
Version 1.1

This servicemenu starts a BitTorrent seed/download in a
new tab in your currently running konsole instance.

Best way to understand how this works I think, is to look at
the screenshots.

For this servicemenu to work you need to have konsole running
(dont you always anyway? :-)). Konsole needs to be started
with the "--script" option as this will enable extended DCOP
functionality needed for this servicemenu. I have solved this
by editing my kicker konsole icon to start konsole like this:
"konsole --script".

You also need BitTorrent, Bram Cohens original implementation
(Debian package: bittorrent)

Have included nice looking 16x16 BitTorrent icon in the
package, credits to yemu.

Every time I try to use this, it complains that it can't find kde-config. This is strange, because that program is in /opt/kde/bin with all of my other KDE executables. So, how do I make it stop complaining? I already tried adding the full path to the shell script, but it didn't help.

The only way I can reproduce this error on my machine is if i misplace/delete bt_download_konsole.sh. I have no idea why the error message says "Could not find `kde-config" when I do this, though.

Double-check that you put the files in the right place. Also what message did you get when you hardcoded the path to kde-konfig?
