    The easiest way to install it would be to enter: sudo apt-get install torrentflux

    This will install TorrentFlux and all of the dependencies. The configuration is web-based and very easy.

    admin@*******:~$ tar -xvzf torrentflux_2.4.tar.gz
    tar: torrentflux_2.4.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    admin@********:~$ tar zxfv
    tar: Old option `f' requires an argument.
    Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
    admin@******:~$

    Nope, there's a problem with you :)

    It needs to be in your Home directory, not on your desktop which is where I am guessing it is! Move it and that command will work :)
