It seems xdg-open, gio-open is not working with magnet link? Here's the output. It says 'ipcinterface:220 No such file: /home/yding/magnet:/?...', but it's URL not a local file.

yding@zbox:~$ xdg-open 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ADBFF7EA0E936FCED6F3D088276CACC7F41D050F&dn=bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_stereo_abl.mp4&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.publicbt.com%3a80%2fannounce&ws=http%3a%2f%2fdistribution.bbb3d.renderfarming.net%2fvideo%2fmp4%2fbbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_stereo_abl.mp4'
This tool has been deprecated, use 'gio open' instead. See 'gio help open' for more info.

I use chrome and deluge. On previous ubuntu 17.04, clicking magnet link in chrome will launch deluge and popup a new download task. On ubuntu 17.10, doing the same thing can only launch deluge but not popup new download task. I think it's related to the error mentioned above in the output. Use deluge-gtk with the magnet link is working. Deluge launch and new download task popup shows as expected.

yding@zbox:~$ deluge-gtk 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ADBFF7EA0E936FCED6F3D088276CACC7F41D050F&dn=bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_stereo_abl.mp4&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.publicbt.com%3a80%2fannounce&ws=http%3a%2f%2fdistribution.bbb3d.renderfarming.net%2fvideo%2fmp4%2fbbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_stereo_abl.mp4'

Anyone encountered the same problem? Any solution?

For now you can manually download libglib-2.0-0 and libglib-2.0-bin for bionic (Ubuntu 18.x) and install it using dpkg to fix this problem until 17.10 updates to the newer version of libglib-2.0-0

Install this https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libglib2.0-0

And the binaries https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libglib2.0-bin

I ran into the same problem and install the packages above fixed the problem for me in Ubuntu 17.10
