Assigning Azsmrc to .torrent files in Linux

    How can I assign Azsmrc to auto-open .torrent files (e.g. double click) because I want to tell Opera to open torrent files with default application.

    I use KDE if it matters.

      Well I don't use Opera but a friend of mine uses it
      and I'm pretty sure that I saw a config option to set file handlers in the preferences.

      Tools - Preferences - Downloads
      Find filetype torrent and edit to "open with default application" if you have AzSMRC as default torrent handler in KDE, or to "open with other application"

        ah, sorry.. forgot one.. Tools - Preferences -  Advanced - Downloads.

        And just put path to lanucher in the boxes below the option you select.

      I know how to do it with opera I just don't know the command to open single file. I tried to open it with the same command which I use to start azsmrc (java -classpath launcher.jar  -Djava.library.path=. I tried command which also works with opening azsmrc (java -jar launcher.jar) but none of them works.

      Well I use windows so I can't really help you there.
      It just takes the first argument passed to it.
      So I would suggest something like
      java -classpath launcher.jar -Djava.library.path=. /path/to/file.torrent
      or if you want to scrape
      java -classpath launcher.jar -Djava.library.path=. -scrape /path/to/file.torrent
      but I don't know if it will work, maybe Marc has an idea.

      OK I got it to work. correct option is "java -jar launcher.jar" but it must be executed in azsmrc dir. it doesn't work from other dirs (so don't try smth like java -jar ~/azsmrc/launcher.jar)

      here is screen for kde setup:
      I know it's in polish but I'm sure you'll figure it out.

      If you want a launcher for AzSMRC which can be used to open/add torrents from your browser, you could use a script I've hacked from the Azureus startupscript.

    For linux/gnome I just use these steps to set the magnet handler to azsmrc
    1. gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/magnet/command '/opt/azsmrc/azsmrc %s' -type String
    2. gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/magnet/enabled -type Boolean true
    3. edit the azsmrc script, so that it supports parameters (add $1):
    java -classpath launcher.jar $1
