But now it doesn't! This is the sequence of events:
- I ran xdg-settings as mentioned previously
- I used "xdg-settings get default-url-scheme-handler magnet" to confirm
- I ran xdg-open magnet:... and it started a torrent download in QBT
- I clicked on a magnet link on a web page and it tried to run Ktorrent.
- I logged out
- I logged in
- I used "xdg-settings get ..." to confirm that the scheme-handler was
- I ran Konqueror to see what would happen, and clicked on a magnet
- Konqueror tried to run Ktorrent.
- I killed Konqueror
- I ran "xdg-settings get ..." to make the sure the scheme had not
- I ran xdg-open magnet:... and it tried to run Ktorrent!
- Logged out and in again
- Rechecked the scheme-handler
- Tried xdg-open again, and again it tried to run Ktorrent.
Could Konqueror have changed some setting behind the scenes?
I don't know..... But, here is something equally bizarre.....
I did the following....
1. yum erase of ktorrent and transmission
3. xdg-open magnet ---- fails as expected
4. yum install ktorrent
6. xdg-settings get default-url-scheme-handler magnet returns nothing
7. xdg-open magnet ---- ktorrent is called
8. yum install transmission
10. xdg-settings get default-url-scheme-handler magnet returns transmission-gtk.desktop
11. xdg-open magnet ---- ktorrent is called
???? why not transmission?
I think I need to know what files are altered by the xdg commands and what are the
system-wide v.s. per-user config files.
