Deluge Init Script

Init script to run Deluge Daemon from the Deluge Torrent Downloader in headless form at Bootup Time.
It can be used with Debian or Ubuntu based Linux Distros. Its ideal for turning a Raspberry Pi into a torrent server.
See my video How to Setup Deluge Daemon on Headless Server for more info.

sudo mv init-deluge /etc/init.d
