    It would be much easier to type: apt-get update && apt-get install transmission

    however if you want to do it the source way:
    tar xvjf transmission-1.93.tar.bz2
    cd transmission-1.93
    ./configure
    make
    make install

    cd transmission-1.93
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    when i ./configure, i still have an error like this:
    ...............
    checking for OPENSSL... yes
    checking for LIBCURL... configure: error: Package requirements (libcurl >= 7.15.4) were not met:

    No package 'libcurl' found

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBCURL_CFLAGS
    and LIBCURL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    What should I do?

    This is where it helps to know how to use Google. Take the error message, stick it in the Google search box, hit the button, read the results that come back. I have fixed a number of issues that have come up during installation of programs via that very method.

    Based on the error you got, I believe you need to install libcurl. Find it in the repositories:

    Code:
    apt-cache search libcurl
    You are probably after a package with "dev" in the name. When you find it, install using:

    Code:
    apt-get install [app_name]
    Or you could do as purehate suggested and just install transmission from the repositories. It will be a lot easier.

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Synaptic Package Manager should give you an error free install.
