#1893 closed bug (Fixed)

Error when adding torrent from Firefox

Reported by: Koroboru Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.4
Component: GTK UI Version: 1.3.3
Keywords: Cc:


When I'm adding torrent from Firefox using "Open with: Deluge Gtk" I get an error from Deluge like this one: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/home/koroboru/file:/tmp/' This bug appeared after updating deluge to 1.3.2 and firefox to 5.0 so actually I'm not sure this is a deluge's bug.

  • Component changed from other to gtkui
  • Milestone changed from Future to 1.3.3
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from other (please specify) to 1.3.2

This will be fixed in next release: 34f816

Workaround from forum:

The simplest solution is to edit /usr/share/applications/deluge.desktop and remove %U after deluge-gtk

Exec=deluge-gtk %U

This bug still occurs for some files, because there's more to file URLs than just the file:// prefix. Special characters are expressed in URLs % escape sequences, and this needs to be reversed before treating the URL like a local path. Fortunately, urllib provides a convenient function to do the conversion for us.

The problem was actually a change I made to the gtk client and I have suggested a fix in #1918 which also includes url paths conversion. What is really needed though is a test created to make sure it works for all OS's and that we don't break it again in the future without noticing.
