Ubuntu: Setting Deluge as the default bittorrent client...

I got a tip that Deluge will work way more reliably than the default client of Ubuntu, Transmission. Installing is easy enough, just type:

 sudo apt-get install deluge  

In the settings I also set it to handle magnet files, but it didn't work out-of-the-box. I had to issue the following command too, to make it work as intended:

 gvfs-mime --set x-scheme-handler/magnet deluge.desktop
