          It seems your machine is behind proxy, you need to import your proxy settings this way..

          export http_proxy=http://username:[email protected]:port/
          export https_proxy=https://username:[email protected]:port/

          Make sure to replace username, password, host and port in the above settings and after that run the following command to add PPA.

          $  sudo -E add-apt-repository ppa:hydr0g3n/qbittorrent-stable

    Thanks DaveM. Was wondering what the heck was going on. Still 3.0.11 on Ubuntu 13.10

  9. Olegvf says:

    Worked for me on Mint Maya, no problems at all

  10. DaveM says:

    This instructions currently are not valid… Hydr0g3n ppa repositories (stable or trunk) they not contain any valid deb file of qbittorrent for Ubuntu Saucy (13.10)… Just a remind to anyone out there wondering why they cant update their qbittorrent 3.0.11 version from the official ubuntu repositories…

    Hydr0g3n ppa (qbittorrent) stable or trunk are broken for ubuntu 13.10…

    • Hi,

      I am the current qBittorrent maintainer.

      Are you sure that the .debs from the PPA don’t work for 13.10? The PPA shows that the debs have built ok for it.

      I don’t actually have 13.10 to test. Could you come to our forums and detail what does not work?

      Thank you.
