gtk-gnutella - A great gnutella P2P server/client

Available for free for a variety of Linux platfoms as well as being easily compiled from source, gtk-gnutella is a great application if you are in need of a powerful, easy to use Gnutella server/client.

gtk-gnutella has features that make finding what you are looking for fast and easy, with an automatic filter that filters out a high number of the usual malware and spyware matches that always seen to come along with a file search on the Gnutella network.

I have been using gtk-gnutella off and and on for about two years now, having originally discovered it in the Ubuntu respostories when I first started using Linux.

I highly recommend you take a look at gtk-gnutella if you have been looking for a stable, easy to use Gnutella client for the Linux platform.


  1. You're so right! Gtk-gnutella is a great application which is very efficient. It works very well and with little RAM consumption and low CPU usage. No wonder, the application is written in C and is therefore highly optimized and system-efficient.

    I would also recommend gtk-gnutella to anyone on Linux wishing to access the Gnutella network.

  2. thanks for the information hopefully can provide value to the many benefits

  3. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of downloads once you have started them? On a Mac. Thanks

    1. Well, according to the GTK-Gnutella website, the Mac version is out of date, but in the current version at least, selecting the incomplete download and then right clicking them will bring up a menu where "Abort" can be chosen, deleting the download.
