Tixati for Windows or Linux (such as Ubuntu & Redhat) is the best free Torrent client but not an open-source one. It is meant for those who want a simple interface, and powerful features without any ads and malware…
Like most the BitTorrent clients, Tixati is also a peer- to peer file sharing program that uses BitTorrent protocol to download content from the decentralized network of systems. It can easily open Torrent files and Magnet links with just a torrent click. In addition to a chat function, the program also includes numerous details about the network currently in use and others. Such as Speed and data statistics displayed in real-time; DHT, PEX, and Magnet Link support, peer selection and choking; RC4 connection encryption for added security; NAT router hole-punching, RSS, IP Filtering, Event Scheduler, and more…
Tixati is not only available for Windows 10/8/7, even we can install it on Linux operating systems such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, CentOS, RedHat, and more. Here we are using Ubuntu 20.04 LTs, however, the steps will be the same for Ubuntu 19.04/18.04/16.04 and other similar Linux distros.
Open command terminal
Tixati is not available in the official repository, thus we can’t install it using the Ubuntu software center, therefore, we need to download the package. Thus, either uses the keyboard shortcut i.e CTRL+ALT+T or go to Applications to find the Command terminal.
Run System update
Before moving further run the system update to let all the installed packages achieve their latest states and also refreshed the APT repository cache
sudo apt update
