Upgraded to Xubuntu 13.04 and cant open click on magnet links any more. Tried kTorrent instead of transmission. Same thing.

Unable to detect the URI-scheme of "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:2418c7c1ad55d86b68ff807b3aac723c500d3f08&dn=Europa+Report+2013+WEBRip+XviD-PTpOWeR&".

I believe it has to do with the new software of the torrent tracker. For example; I installed the latest qbittorrent and the same thing happened. I then downgraded to an older qbittorrent, and it works fine now. Good luck.
