I had the same problem and found a solution: In escence you have to make sure your apps's .desktop file on: /usr/share/applications has this line: MimeType=application/x-bittorrent;application/x-torrent; and then add/edit this line on /usr/share/applications/defaults.list: x-scheme-handler/magnet={$MYAPP}.desktop; setting the correct app name of ...

If you close it the process will keep running up & (seeding & downloading) you can kill the process pidof Java kill <pid number> or you can use "system monitor" this picture shows you that "Java" is running App name "Azureus" ("Vuze" is an app made by "Azureus") after killing the process the you can open "Vuze" again (Sorry I was not a ...

Let me explain this again Firstly we need to check that your program's ".desktop file" (in /usr/share/applications) has this line: MimeType=application/x-bittorrent;application/x-torrent; To check, open the text editor (called gedit) and hit "open" up to the left, then navigate to your program's .desktop file. As stated; you should find it in the folder /...

Mostly it's a bug! And it's still not fixed until this day. I have vuze on Ubuntu 13.10 and I have your problem! Anyways I have a solution for you. Try closing it not from the x button but from the "close" button in the "file" menu up to the left then try reopening it. It should open normally and it even won't display the message at the bottom right corner ...

Actually this is the problem in the design of vuze. If you close vuze it is never actually closed. It runs in background with a process name java. To see that you open the system monitor and see the running processes then you will see the java process corresponding to the vuze. To deal with this problem you have to change the setting of the vuze to stop ...

I have found another "arguably more appropriate" answer. This will give you the ability to edit out the wrong dependency inside the culprit package. Unlike the dummy package method, this will not affect the entire system. You need atool (sudo apt install dpkg-dev devscripts atool) and gdebi (dpkg will do too, but I prefer gdebi) $pkg = the name of the ...

You can't tell Ubuntu to ignore the problem, but you can fake the installation of a package by building a dummy version. It's not that painful. sudo apt install equivs nano openjdk-7-jre Paste in something like the following: Section: misc Priority: optional Package: openjdk-7-jre Description: Dummy package And then run: equivs-build openjdk-7-jre sudo ...

You were probably running Vuze as root, so all files downloaded by it are now owned by root. Make sure Vuze is closed, open a terminal and go to the folder where the files in question are located. Then run the following command: sudo chown -cR $USER:$(id -gn $USER) . (Please note that the point at the end is part of the command). Now start Vuze and ...

My suspicion is that your installation of vuze on Xenial Xerus 16.04 is problematic. (Possibly you have used the snap packaging system which I confess to cordially disliking!) Reverse whatever steps you have taken and remove your installed copy of vuze using the Ubuntu Software application, then follow the following steps in sequence: 1. Install some ...

I'm currently using PeerGuardian to get the lists downloaded and merged: $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jre-phoenix/ppa $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd pglgui PeerGuardian was pretty buggy at startupt in my case but it does merge the lists from bluetack and other providers. Run pglgui On Configure tab, choose your lists and click "...
