I did a quick search, and the CopyMagnetURI plugin was rebuild by a fellow forum member to fix an issue, so here's the post with manual instructions + premade download-link if haven't seen already: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=47501&start=10#p226013

If still not working, then I believe that if I understand it right, then you can "cook-up" a magnet link yourself, by using the infohash of said torrent/magnet. I don't know where/if you can get the infohash in the GTK-UI, but with help of the console-UI and xsel you can achieve the same as the plugin by doing something along:

Code: Select all

echo "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:$(deluge-console info foobar | grep ID | cut -d ' ' -f 2)" | xsel -ib

If not having xsel installed, then instead just output to file for manual copy/paste:

Code: Select all

echo "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:$(deluge-console info foobar | grep ID | cut -d ' ' -f 2)" > magnet.txt

(Exchange 'foobar' with indicative part of the torrent/magnet name in question - It's searched like this internally: *foobar*, and is case-sensitive. You can also test first with 'deluge-console info foobar' to see that you're narrowing it down correctly and not several results are listed, and If using non-standard IP/port, then add 'connect' command)
