Deluge does not handle magnet links

Reported by: tiagoboldt Owned by: andar
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: Unknown Version: 1.2.0_rc4
Keywords: magnet link Cc: martin@…


Despites being able to add torrents by hash, deluge still does not have handles magnet links. With the latest changes and controversies in the most important trackers, I guess that this should be a priority.

Deluge has supported magnet links since 1.1.. Just add the magnet uri as a URL and it should work.

Guess I wasn't clear. Since magnet links in browsers are links, [insert your browser here] should automatically use deluge when one of those links is clicked. This should not be a manual process.

tiagoboldt: If you associate magnet links with deluge in your browser, it should work. On Windows at least, this association was made automatically during deluge install.

Deluge will now try to set it as the default magnet uri handler in GNOME on startup if a default has never been set. There is also a button in the Other preferences to do this as well.

On Windows, the user can have the installer do this for them.

As of a26c5eb56ef6214b3a7ec0d514896969a3909cb9 the associate magnet button in the GtkUI now works in Windows as well.
