[Guide] Installing Stream Torrent in Linux
This guide is intended to help you install Stream Torrent in a Linux distro using WINE. I believe this can also be applied to Mac OS systems.
This guide will be based on using Linux Mint (which is really Ubuntu at the core, but is very easily applied to other Distros).
There are 2 ways of downloading WINE.
1. If you want to download WINE using your linux terminal, go to 1A.
2. If you want to use your package manager (i.e Synaptic, mintInstall etc) go to section 2a.
Section 1- Installing WINE via the linux terminal.
Section 2- Installing WINE through your distro package manager (i.e Synaptic, mintInstall).
2a. Click on the menu button and click on mintInstall (or your linux software manager such as Synaptic, Add/Remove Program).
2b. In the search bar, type WINE. An application will be filtered called WINE-DOORS. Select the program and click the install button.
2c. Another window will pop up asking for confirmation that you want to download and install the package. Click on the install button one more time.
Once you do that you will see the installation software (Synaptic/ mintInstall) start to downlod the packages for WINE.
2d. After WINE has downloaded, you will get a confirmation that it has downloaded and installed sucesfully.
Now proceed to Section 3 to download and install Stream Torrent.
Section 3- Downloading and Installing WINE.
3a. Direct yourself to the Stream torrent site at StreamTorrent | Google Groups
and click on the link under latest installation. Download this file to your desktop.
3b. After Stream Torrent has downloaded, you will need to extract the zip archive. Go to the directory where we saved the StreamTorrent zip (in this guide we saved it to desktop). Right click the file and click 'extract Archieve'.
3c. When the extraction tool opens, click on the extract tab and extract the contents of the zip file to the desktop.
3d. Navigate to the folder where you extracted the Stream Torrent set up files. Right click on the .exe and select 'Open with Wine Windows Loader Program'. WINE will begin to launch the .exe and you should be greeted with the instalation for Stream Torrent.
3e. Install Stream Torrent by following the on screen directions. When it comes to asking you the path where it should install Stream Torrent, leave it at the default path. Click next on continue the on screen steps to install Stream Torrent.
3f. With Stream Torrent installed we now need to launch it. If you click on your menu tab you will see a new menu called 'WINE'. Select it and you will see another option called 'Browse Virtual C: Drive'. Left click that option.
3g. The virtual C: drive is exactly what it says, a virtual C: drive like in Windows. Click on Local Disk>Program Files> Stream Torrent and left click the Stream Torrent .exe to launch.
3h. Happy viewing.
