Perhaps directed to @arnatious, the “maintainer” of the qbittorrent-arnatious…
Installation process of https://snapcraft.io/qbittorrent-arnatious was successful. With some tweaking in PCManFM-Qt’s file properties, .torrent files are properly associated with the snap, and the snap launches automatically and prompts to process it.
The problem lies when a (non-snap, direct installed) FireFox link is clicked, it fetches the .torrent file and places it in the /tmp/mozilla_ubuntu0/ folder, and tries to launch qBittorrent. The launch is successful, but the qbittorrent app displays the following message, which I interpret it as a failure to read the contents of the /tmp folder:
Failed to load the torrent: /tmp/mozilla_ubuntu0/.torrent. Error: No such file or directory
When I manually navigate to that folder, the file is indeed there.
Being able to click on a .torrent file link is extremely useful… Any way to grant this snap access to that particular folder? Any other options?
