kubuntu doens’t open magnet link into ktorrent


magnet doesn’t work out of the box we need to edit this file /usr/share/applications/kde4/ktorrent.desktop

replace

MimeType=application/x-bittorrent;application/x-torrent;

with

MimeType=application/x-bittorrent;application/x-torrent;x-scheme-handler/magnet;

code copy and paste in your terminal , note you need to be root so sudo before is needed.

sed -i 's/MimeType=application\/x-bittorrent\;application\/x-torrent\;/MimeType=application\/x-bittorrent\;application\/x-torrent\;x-scheme-handler\/magnet\;/' /usr/share/applications/kde4/ktorrent.desktop
