Vuze is a great way to download torrents without pesky ads or delays. It’s fast, free, and multi-platform! Plus, it has tons of features that will make your life easier when downloading – like searching through all kinds of files just by typing what you’re looking for in the search bar on desktop sites; creating bundles from multiple seeds with one click (so no need anymore waiting around), speech recognition capabilities so reading out loud while processing info simultaneously…the list goes.
In the following tutorial, you will learn to install the Vuze on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish using either the flatpak package manager or the snapcraft package manager, with some tips for maintaining or removing Torrent software in the future.

Before you begin, make sure your system is up-to-date to avoid any conflicts during the installation, and for good practice, use the terminal command as follows.
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
Currently, the best option to install Vuze is using Snapcraft; right now, most third-party managers do not support Vuze.
For users that removed snapd, re-run the following command:
sudo apt install snapd -y
Once installed, you will need to restart your system, or else the icons may not appear; if you skip a repeat and notice any issues, reboot.
Snap installed? Skip the following few lines and proceed straight to the installation with Snap
Next, some packages come in classic, so you need to create a symlink to enable classic snap support, so it is best to run this command for the best snap compatibility.
sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
Install the core files to avoid conflicting issues.
sudo snap install core
Next, enter the following snap command to install.
sudo snap install vuze
How to Launch Vuze
Now that you have the software installed, launching can be done in a few ways.
Snap users need to use the snap run <application> command.
sudo snap run vuze-vs
However, this is not practical, and you would use the following path on your desktop to open the course.
Activities (top-right corner) > Show Applications > Vuze
Once you open Vuze, you will land at the default window; from here, you can begin to use the torrent client program for legitimate purposes.
How to Update/Upgrade Vuze
Updates should appear in notifications, but if these fail to show sometimes, it is recommended to check using the terminal regardless and use the following command to check for updates.
sudo snap refresh
How to Remove (Uninstall) Vuze
Use the following command to remove the torrent software for users who no longer require Vuze.
sudo snap remove --purge vuze-vs
