|Hi, I've using gentoo for a few weeks and I'm getting some troubles.
Now, I'm trying to open magnet links with KTorrent (which open torrents links perfectly and works fine).
before use gentoo I was using arch linux and I didn't have to configure nothing in order to use magnet links with bitTorrent. This time, when I installed Ktorrent, I got from firefox:
|Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (magnet) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.
You might need to install other software to open this address.
I've read some post on internet and I've tried:
1) I've found /usr/share/applications/defaults.list in order to add x-scheme-handler/magnet=kde4-ktorrent.desktoop
But the defaults.list file didn't exist (so, I've tried to make it but ktorrent still not working)
2) On firefox, I've open "about:config" and make a new boolean variable named "network.protocal-handler.expose.magnet" with false value. Then, firefox was supposed to ask me for a torrent client to select but that not happened.
Also, I've tried to change the use flags of the ktorrent package to add magnetgenerator (although I think this is not exactly what I want) but not...
Now, I can't know if the problem is with ktorrent, with firefox, or with the configuration files of gentoo...
Could you help me ?
