Pruning the forum database.
Well, I know it's not the isp, as i've used it before. What's happening is when I click on a link and choose to open it in transmission or deluge it says ok but then it doesn't add it to the program. every step works except for it actually adding and downloading the file. very weird.
Have you tried KTorrent? (can't recall but I think it's installed by default)
just checked and I can confirm that it does not work clicking a torrent file .. it will not show up in transmission ..though it does start up transmission .. also noticed chromium wants root privilege to see the file ??
