How to configure chrome to open magnet url's with deluge?

i'm trying to open a magnet link in chromium on lubuntu precise. exactly how would i get this to work?
i'm running chromium thats the standard on lubuntu. i'm pretty sure it used to work in 11.10. i've found a little info here: http://www.void.gr/kargig/blog/2012/01/24/open-magnet-urls-with-xdg-open/ not sure if that's correct or not

Please reopen this question? The solution(s) offered in [How to configure chrome to open magnet url's with deluge?]askubuntu.com/questions/44849/… did not work under my Lubuntu 12.04 install. –  Insperatus Aug 15 '12 at 19:40
can i even do that if it was closed? –  marinara Aug 17 '12 at 5:18
I think it must be someone with enough reputation and moderator status. Were you ever able to get the magnet links working? –  Insperatus Aug 19 '12 at 0:50
nope, but i've heard people say it actually works (on some pc's), but i don't believe them. use firefox :) –  marinara Aug 19 '12 at 4:15
