I have a bunch of torrent clients and some of them support magnet links. How to I switch which one of them will pop up when I click such link on a website? Currently no matter what I do (I tried following this: http://myinterestingubuntu.blogspot.com/2012/01/change-magnet-links-association-in.html ) all such links are opened in Ktorrent, while I want them to be handled by Vuze. I use KDE 4.8 in case that's important.

In your mimeapps.list file, did add this line?

x-scheme-handler/magnet=<vuze desktop file name>;

Replace <vuze desktop file name> with the name of vuze's .desktop file. It should be in /usr/share/applications/ .

Yes, but it didn't work. I found a different solution: put the following into file ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/magnet.protocol:
Code:
[Protocol]
exec=vuze "%u"
protocol=magnet
input=none
output=none
helper=true
listing=false
reading=false
writing=false
makedir=false
deleting=false
