Transmission download

Hi, can anyone help me to download Transmission. This is for my second laptop on which I use Zorin. I copied a video from youtube and got:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmission/ppa
[sudo] password for joe:
Cannot add PPA: ‘ppa:~transmission/ubuntu/ppa’.
The user named ‘~transmission’ does not have any PPA

Please note I tried in the terminal because I cannot download it through my desktop because it insists I register an account with Ubuntu and every time I try to, it won’t let me. Thanks.

a) what’s wrong with the version of transmission in the default repos (2.92) ?

and if you MUST have 2.94 for some reason…

b) shouldn’t that be

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa


Thanks, but I can’t find transmission. When I search for it…nothing. When I attempt to download a movie for example I can’t. I used to do it in Mint and it would work automatically…in Zorin nothing happens.

Never used Zorin, so cannot test this, but as I understand it is based on Ubuntu so it should work:

sudo apt install transmission-gtk transmission-common

Thanks for the replies.
