    Default How do I make Deluge the default torrent client in 11.3 KDE 4.4

    There in no "torrent client" listed under personal settings> default applications.

    I don't want the default Ktorrent I want Deluge as my client. Selecting a .torrent file launches Ktorrent. I do not want this action how do I change it?.

    Go to System Settings/File Associations. Search, at the top, for 'torrent' and it will show application - x-bittorrent. Click on that and change application preference order to having deluge at the top. Deluge should then open when you click on a torrent file. You can remove ktorrent if you want.

    You're looking in the wrong sub menu.
    You need to select the tab Advanced.
    From there select "File Associations".
    Now search using the search bar at the top of the window.

    Good luck!
