magnet links don't launch at all?

Sat Sep 15, 2012 1:58 pm
Maybe this belongs here:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=258317

When I click on a magnet link, konqueror gives an error, including:

Code: Select all
Additional Information: Unable to create io-slave: klauncher said: Error loading 'ktorrent "%u"'.


And yet when I run this by hand at the konsole, I merely get:

Code: Select all
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
ktorrent is already running !
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.


and the magnet is added to the running ktorrent. Is there some sort of configuration somewhere that needs resetting? This used to work ages ago, but hasn't worked in quite a while.

I'm running latest from git.

With konqueror 4.8.4 this seems to work fine.

I would recommend running "kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental" just to make sure no cache inconsistencies are preventing KTorrent or the Magnet protocol support being found in certain circumstances.

If you run "kioclient exec <magnet url>" what happens?
