The wiki is your friend!

That should get you going. I used it to set up gnomad2, and iriverter on my systems.

hey seth thanks for the reply, but i was hoping to find a way to add it as a media type next to video/audio/tv etc, instead of the computing option which thom said was an afterthought.  I wanted ktorrents to be more integrated instead of the duct tape type deal so it could be used in an orbiter.  now if i'm totally off please do correct me on this.  i do appreciate your input.  ;D

either use the computing section for this,

or do a proper orbiter integration by making a torrent plugin, a backgrounded torrent client, and integration as Jobs into the system.

Any of you up for hacking on this?
