Description of problem:
Opening a .torrent file does not work with deluge. Deluge complains about not being able to open the file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click a .torrent file in firefox.
Deluge complains about not finding the file.
New torrent is added to deluge.
The issue is caused by the deluge .desktop file specifying it wants a URI, not a path as an argument. It therefore gets e.g. "file:/tmp/foo.torrent" instead of "/tmp/foo.torrent" (which works). I assume this was done to handle magnet links, so you can't just switch back to providing paths.
Either deluge needs to learn how to deal with file://, or you'll have to have two .desktop files, one for .torrent files and one for magnet links.
Seems like this is fixed in 1.3.3, looking at the changelog:
"# Fix path error with torrent files prefixed with ' file://' from Firefox"
