how to open magnet links?

Được đăng

None of the question related, solved my problem, first, I don't use windows; second, questions related are from years ago, nad seems outadted, because much of that questions suggest to change the values of network.protocol-handler.external.magnet, but in Iceweasel 29 I can't find anything similar., should I create it? what kind of value is, boolean, string...? I don't have it some clear, or at least in your support is not clear at all.

And this link which is recommended in some relates questions : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol is broken, at least to me is broken.

so... how may open magnet links in this disspaointing browser?. I don't want to use Chrome/Chromium because they're worse.

I'm using Linux.

Hello,

I am sorry that you weren't able to find apt help. Now lets try to help you. So you want that when you click a magnet link a torrent application automatically opens and you dont have to copy the magnet link manually? If this is the case follow the steps below or else get back to me and please make me understand something i didn't get. Let's begin :

1. Open Firefox and type in about:config in the Address Bar and hit Enter. 2. Type in enter handler.expose in the search box at the top of the list. 3. right click - New - Boolean 4. Enter the preference name network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet 5. Set its value to false 6. Click on the magnet link and you should see Firefox’s Launch Application Choose Dialog 7. Select your torrent client.

Hope it helps.

I'm wondering WHY you want to use magnet links for (besides the obvious reason of torrenting).

Basically, magnet links is just an easier way to download torrents as supposed to .torrent files. IMO, I see no major difference besides fewer clicks to download. Magnet links are typically available on The Pirate Bay among others such as KickAssTorrents, which I think is going into magnets or already is in.

Long story short, you need a torrent client such as uTorrent or Transmission which is available pre-installed in every major Linux distro such as Linux Mint and Ubuntu. I think Fedora has Deluge pre-installed but I'm not sure. I haven't used Fedora in a while.


To clarify, Firefox isn't able to open .magnet files without a torrent client such as uTorrent or Transmission. Firefox is able to download it and prompt you to open it with torrent software but not view .magnets natively. There's a few add-ons that allow you to download .magnets from within Firefox.

Moses: I think I can reserve my self such reason why I want to use magnet links, thank you for your answer.

I think devs should not get into the life of people, if people wants to use magnet links, let them use them, at least is good to know that firefox still allows that, Talha: thankyou for answer as well.

both answers clarified me, and now I can open magnet links with KTorrent.
