    How to set Chromium to open magnet links with kTorrent?

    I tried to set kTorrent as the default app for magnet links and now in gconf the command for magnets is /usr/bin/ktorrent. However Chromium still opens magnets using Transmission.

    Any ideas how I could get it to use kTorrent?

    Did you set all the things listed here? Also, what version of KTorrent are you using?

    I set all those things, but it doesn't work. kTorrent 4.1.3.

    I dont use Chromium, but you probably have to set the option in Chromium, not Ktorrent. There should be some sort of file association setting.

    I agree that there should be a file association setting, but I haven't been able to find it.

    It might get its setting from the main system settings. Have you set your system to use ktorrent as the default program to open magnet lnks with?
    (Note that it tends to take a minute or so for ktorrent to open a magnet link)
