If I use firefox, and click a magnet link, everything runs smoothly. however, in google chrome, all I get is that the deluge icon shakes as if it is opening something, but when I look at the window I don't see anything coming up. Any help?

After upgrading to ubuntu 15.10, it looks like this issue is resolved.


xdg-mime default deluge.desktop x-scheme-handler/magnet This command in the terminal should fix your problem

  • Thanks for the help! but no luck. I no longer have a wiggling icon, strangely, but the torrent's information doesn't come up in the window that opens, all that happens is that the program starts. – Will Jul 4 '15 at 5:37
