In Xubuntu, I can't locate Deluge with the "Open With" option. How can I associate Deluge with .torrent files so it automatically opens them in Deluge?

  1. You must do a secondary click over the file and select the Open with another application option.
  2. then select the Show others applications button below this window. As you can see in the following image:


Do not take as reference the text (is in spanish), but the image.

There you will see the all the applications installed on your computer.


Select Open with > other then navigate to usr/bin/ click on deluge or deluge-gtk then click on "Do this automatically for files like this from now on".


Do u have any other torrent clients in your system. If u have; then remove it and the Deluge will become your default client.
