Get it from here:

Still an awful theme. Not much more done on 'fido', except thanks to 01micko and tazoc for fido-friendly package updates. Some extremely important bug fixes since, read my blog. New 2.6.32-40 kernel.

I have also uploaded delta files, for upgrading from Wary 5.1.1 or

application_x-bittorrent NOT set to Transmission
Username: broomdodger
"Wary and application_x-bittorrent NOT set to Transmission I downloaded the ubuntu torrent link: ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso.torrent When I clicked it, it did not open Transmission. ok, I said to myself "what is the runtime action?" This is what I found: /root/Choices/MIME-types/application_x-bittorrent That file it is referencing pctorrent: #!/bin/bash echo "$1" > $HOME/.pctorrent/torrfile pctorrent & 1) searched for pctorr: # find / -iname '*pctorr*' And found nothing. 2) searched for transmiss: # find / -iname '*transmiss*' /usr/share/applications/transmission-gtk.desktop This is the content of that file: #! /bin/sh exec transmission-gtk "$@" 3) changed application_x-bittorrent: #!/bin/bash ## echo "$1" > $HOME/.pctorrent/torrfile ## pctorrent & exec transmission-gtk "$@" 4) clicking the .torrent file now works. Is this the right thing to do? -Bill
