View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Change Default Application for Torrent

June 20th, 2008, 03:55 PM
Since I remove Transmission, my default torrent client is Deluge. If I right click any torrent file, Deluge will appear on 'Open With..' tab but since I installed Weatherbug this morning, WeatherBug has totally replaced Deluge. Even though I can still select Deluge by selecting other application and go to /usr/bin/deluge but I would prefer it to be like it was before. By the way, WeatherBug is not even a torrent client! How do I change this?

Right click a torrent file, go to "Properties", then the "Open With" tab will let you set the default there ;)

Thanks guy. Once deluge was selected, the setting will remain as it was for the next job. Now, it has back to normal.

Are you saying that after you opened it up, it went back to opening with the default app that was selected by Ubuntu? If so, give my guide a try and see if it fixes your problem.

I just changed the default application to manage my iPod. I'm sure you can do the same for .torrent files. So now I can right-click my iPod and select the custom application I want to open it with.
