View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I make transmission my default for .torrents?

August 24th, 2008, 09:26 AM
Whenever I download a .torrent file in firefox3, it wants to open in bittorrent, however there is an "Other", but it brings me to my /home folder, and I have no idea where transmission is actually installed to, how do I make certain files load in default clients in firefox?

Transmission should be in /usr/bin/transmission.

as a side note, you can always find out the location of any command by typing

which commandname

Transmission should be in /usr/bin/transmission.

I found the binary there, yet firefox still reverts to "BitTorrent download client" which is not nearly as nice as Transmission.

Any ideas?:confused:

Not sure WBarry, I'm on Lucid and Ryadt's suggestion worked fine for me. Thanks Ry.
