Get ktorrent downloads to start immediately without confirmation screen


I'm using ktorrent 3.3.4 and would like that when I open a torrent file, that it starts downloading immediately without that confirmation screen that pops up first, allowing you to select/deselect files you'd like to download, etc.

Because almost 100% of the time I'd like the download to start with no changes to the settings or without deselecting any files to be downloaded. I looked through the settings but I couldn't find where to do this. Has anyone here managed to get it working this way?

I tried selecting the 'Open multiple torrents silently' setting, but that didn't change anything. What does this setting do, by the way? Does anyone here know?

Thanks a lot.

Where can I find 'Open all torrents silently'? I checked 'Open multiple torrents silently' under Settings > Configure KTorrent > Application, but that didn't change anything...

It should be below the option to open multiple torrents silently. Deselect open multiple and select open all.

What version of ktorrent are you seeing that extra option in? I'm using 3.3.4 because that's the latest available from the yum repositories. It's a relatively older version so that may be the problem...

If that's what's going on here, I'd prefer not to compile it myself (which is what seems to be the only other option from their website) just because I won't know when updates are ready, and when they are the process for updating it is difficult. So I guess I am to wait until a new version is out in some repository...
