I have recently installed Linux Mint 16 "Petra".
Previously with Linux Mint 13
, when I clicked on a magnet link in the chromium browser, it would automatically start "Transmission". Now when I do so, it offers to open "xdg-open". The choices offered are "do nothing or "launch application".
If I select "launch application", it merely opens an new browser page.
I cannot find anywhere in the Transmission preference settings to make it the default application for magnets... INSTALLED versions:
Chromium Version 31.0.1650.63 Built on Ubuntu 13.10, running on LinuxMint 16 (31.0.1650.63-0ubuntu0.13.10.1~20131204.1)
Transmission: 2.82 (14160) How do I get Chromium to associate magnets with Transmission?
