How to add magnet links

Postby Lerxst » Fri Jul 06, 2012 9:09 am

I just 'converted' from Linux to Mac and I'm having a problem in Firefox that when I click on a magnet link (after chosing Deluge as the default application), Deluge doesn't open the add torrent dialogue box, Deluge is just brought to the front if running, or started if not.
A normal .torrent ending brings the add torrent dialogue box.

OSX 10.7.4
Deluge 1.3.5

Magnet links are not currently supported by Deluge OSX.

Deluge use GTK-OSX, which did not support "URL schemes" last time I checked. (opening/sending an URL to an app)
And I guess that didn't changed since. I'll try to give a look someday... Looks interesting:
