If you have cron installed you can always add someting like this to crontab:
Code:
@reboot screen -dmt "torrent transfers" rtorrent

It should work. :) -t switch just adds the window title, which can be left out.

Since this thread is about rtorrent and not btg, I think we should continue our btg discussion here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5153287.html#5153287

Hm. Isn't there a GUI frontends for rtorrent? Just a thought that is it possible to connect with rtorrent GUI frontend to a rtorrent that is running inside a dtach or screen?

Google : "rtorrent gui" will provide some interesting results.
But you should look at btg because its server/client design is totally appropriate.

I like _very_ much the rtorrent design. And all the possible cuntomizations in it.
I've used it on a 900Mhz Pentium III / 340Mb RAM machine where KDE was running. It has amazing low memory usage and most of the time it wont bother your cpu too much. ;)
Now you may see why I'm not keen to change from it... But there is no reason to stay with rtorrent if some other client provides better resource usage (can't really get much better) or user interface.

One thing I found kinda tricky in rtorrent is that you cannot easily change the download destination directory for one individual torrent download that is already started (I just save *.torrent -files to a directory where rtorrent finds then and starts downloading automatically).
