How can I specify the application that should be associated with Magnet links?

The Application section of the System Settings only contains a section for torrent files, not for magnet links. For some reason, Deluge claims magnet links, while I have qBittorrent selected for torrent files.

I would like to have qBittorrent handle magnet links as well, but without uninstalling Deluge for it.

You'll need to manually define mime-type for that. Example:

xdg-mime default qBittorrent.desktop x-scheme-handler/magnet

Cheers! ;-)
