You can temp-ban a client/IP for 5/15/45/60/120 minutes and forever from the clients list in the torrent details. This IP will be added to the IPFilter list and removed when the time's up.
Lince has a dedicated area where you can see your download/upload speed, session average, download/upload and share ratio of the session and total.
There's a problem with the dynamic linking of some libraries. To solve this problem simply run sudo ldconfig /usr/local/lib/
If Lince wasn't built with dbus support an alternative method is used to check for multiple sessions. A lock file is created and checked before running another session. When running a new session you will be asked if you want to remove the lock file.
Trackers can be added and removed. The list will be saved between sessions.
