How To Make A Program Run All The Time

Recommended Posts

New question for you all

I want Ktorrent to run always in the background even if all the users log off. Is this possible?

and if you cant, is there a way to keep a user always logged in running Ktorrent in the background?

Thanks for all your help :)

You can run some software as daemons but not all software is suited to this. I'm guessing Ktorrent is a KDE BitTorrent client. As such, it probably expects to be run with a UI.

What you want is probably something like this http://wiki.theory.org/BASH_script_to_run_...ent_as_a_daemon I found it with a google for "torrent daemon"

hmm yeah I dont think this is going to work with ktorrent. I need to stick with ktorrent though because it seems to be the only client i can run on this my computer. All the others crash on start for some reason. Thanks anyway
