deluge [options] [torrent]


Deluge utilizes a client/server model, with 'deluged' being the daemon process and 'deluge' being used to launch a user-interface.

By default, Deluge will run in 'Classic' mode where the daemon functionality will be hidden and the GtkUI will automatically launch a 'deluged' process. You can turn this off in the Preferences dialog.
