Fixing Magnet Links in Chromium on Linux

I just discovered that magnet links didn’t work out of the box in Chromium on CrunchBang Linux.

I tried a couple of other fixes found in other places and figured I’d repeat the one that worked here in case it can be helpful to someone.

The solution that worked came from here, although it turned out that only this one command was necessary.

xdg-mime default transmission-gtk.desktop x-scheme-handler/magnet
