Easy steps for IPv6 enabled Transmission 1.50 on Ubuntu

The Ubuntu repositories stilll have got an older (< 1.50) version of Transmission bittorrent client. I am even not sure which version Jaunty has or will have.

So, to get Transmission 1.50 with IPv6, you'll need to do something else: go to and select the Ubuntu version you've got. Then download &  install the two files. I believe you have to start with the "common" file.

If downloading&installing does not work, download the two files, and the install them by hand like this:

sudo dpkg -i transmission-common_1.50-1~getdeb1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i transmission-gtk_1.50-1~getdeb1_i386.deb

After that, transmission will do IPv6. That is: *if* you have IPv6 enabled on your Linux or MacOSX.
