Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

With BitTorrent magnet links, sometimes I want to use Deluge to open a particular link (to download it), and sometimes I want to use peerflix to open it, so I can stream the torrent (if it's a video).

How do I make Ubuntu ask me what every time which application I want to use to open the magnet URI? Is it possible?
