Install utorrent in ubuntu

I have following:
Ubuntu version -> 12.04
Utorrent version tar.gz file -> utorrent-server-3.3-debian-6.0-i386-30235.tar.gz


Install libraries just in case if you have not installed it before.
Run following commands:

1. sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386
2. sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6

Once the libraries are installed, follow below steps to begin actual install of utorrent:

  1. Download utorrent .tar.gz from -> http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/linux
    Above tar.gz file will most prorably be downloaded in /home/Downloads folder.
  2. go to /home/Downloads and run:
    tar xvzf utorrent-server-3.3-debian-6.0-i386-30235.tar.gz -C /opt/
  3. chmod -R 777 /opt/utorrent-server-alpha-v3_3/
  4. sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent-server-alpha-v3_3/utserver /usr/bin/utserver
  5. Finally run the utorrent server
    utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-alpha-v3_3/ &
  6. Open firefox and run utorrent -> http://localhost:8080/gui/
    username: admin and password is blank
  7. Please leave a comment or g +1 or share on f or share on t below if this post helped you. This will keep me motivating.

Thanks for the help. I am running this on Xubuntu 14.04LTS. Had to tweak the recipe a little:

First, I installed dependencies:

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386

To Install uTorrent on Xubuntu 14.04

1. Download uTorrent Client for Ubuntu 13.04:

utserver.tar.gz

2. Double-Click on Archive and Extract uTorrent into /tmp

3. Relocate uTorrent:

sudo su

mv /tmp/utorrent* /opt/utorrent

4. Extract uTorrent Web GUI

cd /opt/utorrent

sudo unzip webui.zip -d webui/

Note: If you do not have unzip:
sudo apt-get install unzip

5. Change permission of the utorrent folder:

sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/utorrent/

6. Create a symbolic link so that you can run the torrent server from terminal:

sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent/utserver /usr/bin/utserver

7. Finally run the utorrent server:

sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent/utserver /usr/bin/utserver

8. Open firefox and run utorrent:
http://localhost:8080/gui/

Works perfectly!

How would you change it so that you can run the uTorrent process as another user (other than root)?
