Subject description: for those who failed to download some torrent with no available torrent file DL
 

EDIT: A new and better and faster and stronger solution has been found, please move your eyes to: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=111576

Hello, this is a simple double solution post. Made this for Tahrpup users where Firefox just acts dumb when it comes to orders such as "magnet:" or "file:" etc. Only for magnet though.

The first solution:

    * Open "Transmission" (Default torrent GUI for Tahrpup)
    * Open the page in firefox where the magnet link is located.
    * DRAG & DROP, the LINK of the "magnet:" to the Transmission window. (It may need pressing alt+tab as JWM doesn't recognize moving items to the toolbar)
    *Done!


The second solution:

    * Open the page in firefox where the magnet link is located.
    * In a new tab, open this page: http://magnet2torrent.me/
    * Copy and paste the magnet link link to that aforementioned webpage.
    * Download result.
    * Open it with transmission.
    * Done!


That's it, I hope it helps!
Let me know if I missed something Wink
