For xfce4 or any GTK de Transmission is unbeatable if you want a Uttorent type use qbittorrent but it brings in a lot of qt deps and is no faster than transmission non need setting up.

qBittorrent has an awesome torrent search engine (apart from any of its other benefits - which are many, at least to those that use them), just the efficiency of the search engine would be enough for me.
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

Noob friendly? Not really, but you probably shouldn't be setting up web services if you don't know what you're doing.

If you have a specific question, ask it.
