How to Install qBittorrent 3.3.7 on Ubuntu 16.10

     qBittorrent is a free, open-source and reliable P2P BitTorrent client, available for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows. It aims to provide a free software alternative to uTorrent.

qBittorrent 3.3.7 changelog : 
       qBittorrent v3.3.7 was released. Minor bugfixes of v3.3.6. Mac OS X builds will be delayed a little bit because Qt 5.6.1 doesn't play nice and I'll need to rebuild 5.6.0.

  •     FEATURE: Delete torrent+files with Shift+Delete
  •     BUGFIX: Fix 6-hour speedplot point push rate.
  •     BUGFIX: Avoid spawning a new explorer.exe process when selecting "Open containing folder".
  •     BUGFIX: Fix loading of new geoip db due to an artificial size limit.
  •     BUGFIX: Better error handling and logging with smtp communication.
  •     SEARCH: Remove KickassTorrents search engine.
  •     SEARCH: Remove BTDigg search engine.
  •     SEARCH: Update Torrentz search engine.

Installation instructions: 

    With the new release of 16.10, I had few problems installing qbittorrent from  the .tar.gz installation file obtained from original website of qbittorrent. However I got a way to compile  eventually, it happened to be working properly.

First you must install dependencies :

$ sudo apt-get install libboost-dev libboost-system-dev build-essential

$ sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev

$ sudo apt-get install qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev-tools

$ sudo apt-get install python

$ sudo apt-get install geoip-database

$ sudo apt-get install libtorrent-rasterbar-dev

   Run the following command to download and compile qBittorrent 3.3.7

$ wget

$ tar -xvf qbittorrent-3.3.7.tar.gz

$ cd qbittorrent-3.3.7

$ ./configure

$ make

$ sudo make install

$ sudo qbittorrent
