I have to admit. I'm struggling here in linux. Is there a place where I can specify a file 'say a magnet torrent file' to automatically open in Ktorrent once I click on it? The 'open with' option as in windoze doesn't seem to exist or list the options I would expect.
How would I get ktorrent to automatically associate with magnet files or indeed torrents!
If you "right click" a file, you will see an "Open With" option.
(if the option you want is not in the list, "Other" should be at the bottom.)
Pick that option and select the program that you want to use.
At this point, there should be a "Remember application association for this type of file" box that can be clicked "on".
Once you click on that, the files of that type should open with that program.
