Ubuntu – How to make Opera open magnet links


I have Transmission 2.52 and Opera 11.64 x64, when I try to open a magnet link from The Pirate Bay, Opera says it cant recognize that protocol, how to set up?

Best Answer

Go to preferences -> advanced -> programs -> add Protocol = magnet

Choose your action:

Then tick Open with other application (and copy the line from below):

 /usr/bin/transmission %s

Parameter: leave empty (unchecked) Open in terminal

You need to wait 3 or 4 minutes until the peers list is completely loaded!
