check the Repos. There should be plenty of Torrent clients available. Like BitTornado (the one I use). Not sure if BitTorrent works in linux (if it does it'll be in the repos)

Yes, I use vuze(previously known as azureus). To install it follow the following steps:
1. Open terminal.
2. Type the following command:
sudo aptitude install azureus
3. And that is it.

Vuze is completely GUI and has lots of features.
:thumbsup:

Tons of Bit Torrent clients available for Linux. You can find many of them by clicking the Applications>Add/Remove and searching for "bit torrent." (How to use the Add/Remove feature)

Personally, I use rtorrent. It's super light-weight (unlike the behemoth Azureus), but lacks a GUI (Azureus is pretty) and runs in text mode only. It's not in the repos, but you can download the source from http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/

Frostwire also handles torrents. Should be in the repos.
