To get in contact and share your experiences with other users of PyroScope, join the rtorrent-community channel pyroscope-tools on Gitter.

This is also the way to resolve any problems with or questions about your configuration and software installation. Always look into the Trouble-Shooting Guide as a first measure, which is often the fastest way to get back to a working system. That guide also explains how to efficiently report your problem when you cannot fix it yourself.


If you update an existing installation, you need rTorrent-PS 1.1 or later for the contained configuration to work. If you use an older version, call

echo >>~rtorrent/rtorrent/rtorrent.d/.rcignore 05-rt-ps-columns.rc

when you get errors about ui.column.render on startup. Or simply follow Upgrade the rTorrent-PS Version.
