I've just done a fresh install of the latest Ubuntu (10.10) and I'm having a problem with Magnet links.
I've done the following:
as per these instructions: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=811037* Type about:config into the address bar and press Enter.
* Right-click -> New -> Boolean -> Name: network.protocol-handler.external.magnet -> Value -> true
* Right-click -> New -> String -> Name: network.protocol-handler.app.magnet -> Value -> /usr/bin/transmission
* Ensure network.protocol-handler.expose-all is set to true
But Transmission will not start. It works fine with normal torrent links added either through Firefox or in Transmission itself, but when you click a Magnet link nothing happens.
This is a little annoying, because back in 10.4/9.10 everything worked fine.
I'm on 10.10 (64) and with the latest stable Transmission (2.10).
Any suggestions are appreciated.
