Launching deluge-gtk results in the following error as it states it cannot open classic mode:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/ui/gtkui/", line 349, in _on_reactor_start
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/ui/", line 559, in start_classic_mode
self._daemon_proxy = DaemonClassicProxy(self.__event_handlers)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/ui/", line 432, in __init__
self.__daemon = deluge.core.daemon.Daemon(classic=True)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/core/", line 144, in __init__
from deluge.core.core import Core
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/core/", line 38, in <module>
from deluge._libtorrent import lt
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/", line 59, in <module>
import libtorrent as lt
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After this, you can either decline launching classic mode (resulting in a nonresponsive ui) or just close the program.

Downgrading to for libtorrent-rasterbar fixes this.

Additional info:
* Deluge 1.3.14
* libtorrent-rasterbar 1.1.13

Steps to reproduce:
Launch deluge-gtk
