http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am trying to set the default application for magnet links using: xdg-mime default deluge.desktop x-scheme-handler/magnet Checking this with grep -i deluge ~/.local/share/applications/* yeilds: /home/manko/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list:x-scheme-handler/magnet=deluge.desktop /home/manko/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list:application/x-bittorrent=deluge.desktop i.e. it should have worked right?!? However when I run xdg-open magnet:?xt=urn:btih:6fa3fa92... chromium fires up! I'm stumped. (HowTos)
