Qbittorrent wont open

How to use qbittorrent

I still can’t get it to work the way it used to. I also tried allowing the option to open the destination folder when a completed torrent is double-clicked, but no luck. This isn’t more than a slight inconvenience, but I obviously use that option frequently and would like to restore it.
Apart from upgrading qbittorrent (note that this was not working on 4.2.5 and still isn’t working on 4.3.0), the only other improvement I can think of is that I recently transferred my default save position from my home directory to a mounted directory with a lot more room. The mount has rwx permissions, and qbittorrent is operating under the same account as the mounted directory’s owner. I honestly don’t know if it stopped working when I moved to the mount, but I can’t say it didn’t; accepting the default locations on a fresh install had no impact.
I’m not sure what log will be useful here. I’ve reproduced and captured journalctl and dmesg output; if there’s anything unique I can catch, please let me know. I checked the qbittorrent execution file, but it didn’t show anything.

I had to do a profile reset after the “Translate to” option in the context menu stopped working; now, whenever I open a magnet connection, it asks me to open my torrent manager instead of automatically downloading.
I know I need to change “protocol handler”: to “protocol handler”:”excluded schemes”:”magnet”:false in the Preferences file, and it worked last time, but it didn’t this time: when I open Chrome, it changes to “protocol handler”:”excluded schemes,*”:”magnet”:false (,* appears after schemes) and it doesn’t work.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, you can re-enable the option to have any connection handled by its corresponding app at all times, which saves you from having to click on that irritating confirmation box for any magnet or torrent link you want to download.
Add the required line to your Windows registry depending on the browser you’re using (Edge, Chrome, or Chromium). Save the code below as a.reg file, such as ShowExternalProtocolWarningBypassCheckbox.reg, to accomplish this. You may also use regedit to do it manually.

The donation information has been revised to better reflect the project’s expectations. Donations are made as a “Thank You” and with no intention of us fulfilling any responsibility, such as implementing function X or Y.
We can’t set very precise targets because the production is run entirely by volunteers. A volunteer will fix/implement whatever pleases him/her at the end of the day. We can’t push volunteers to do things they don’t want to do if they don’t want to. Lead programmers are in the same boat. We, too, are volunteers.
However, if you need unique features or issues resolved, please visit our Bountysource page. You may post a monetary bounty for an issue/feature there, and then someone will be motivated to fix/implement it.
ATTENTION: The way network interfaces are implemented has changed slightly. In the Advanced Settings, if you have a particular network interface/local address range, double-check that your settings haven’t changed. The extra setting for IPv6 address listening has been disabled.

How to use qbittorrent to search for torrents?

Copy the torrent connection into the torrent client and proceed from there. If it doesn’t appear when you choose it from the menu, the launcher could be disabled, and you’ll need to edit it to repair it. Try invoking from the terminal if that doesn’t work… Check your logs if none of the above has had any impact.
It’s most likely a sandbox problem, where the browser doesn’t have permission to access Bittorrent in that manner. You could try starting an unregulated browser session and then trying again, or, as I previously said, simply copy the connection into the application (which is what I do).
