Good morning,

I have installed a Torrential however I am no table to use it. When I try to download a torrent, Elementary offers the list of torrent clients, but Torrential is not amongst them. Also, when I try to change defaults in Firefox, I do not see it in the list.

How can I make it default client? I tried to browse, but I have no clue where it is hiding and what file to select to run it.

Thank you Peter

if you save the torrent file on your pc, then by going to the downloads folder and right-clicking it you can choose which application to open it with. There you should also(however I don't remember how) be able to set it as the default app for that filetype


I would recommend opening an issue on the app's issue queue: https://github.com/davidmhewitt/torrential/issues

You could manually select it from the file system by selecting "Choose other Application", navigating to /usr/bin/ and selecting com.github.davidmhewitt.torrential.
