Bittorent what??


Okay, I have installed Bittorrent with apt-rpm ... But how do I make it work? When I try to download a torrent file, nothing happens! Firefox just ask me where to put the file...

What can be wrong?

When Firefox asks where to put the file, it should pop up with a window asking whether you want to open it or save it. I have it configured to open it with /usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py. This brings up the bittorrent save-dialog box, so you choose where to save it and presto! it starts downloading.
