i am using linux mint 11. The default torrent client for linux mint is transmission. The pre-installed transmission does not contain queue facility.. However, Transmission version – 2.42 has been released where the option is accrued. But by using synaptic packet manager we cant upgrade transmission to 2.42. there are three commands to upgrade this software. They are shown below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install transmission-gtk

Open the terminal and run above 3 commands.. Now, you ll get transmission 2.42
