Magnet torrent links do not contain any files in Deluge

Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this.

When I click a magnet link for a torrent file, Deluge opens as expected, but the torrent never seems to contain any files, so the torrent never begins to download. .torrent files downloaded work, but magnet links never seem to work properly. This just happened out of the blue, and I have tried deleting my deluge config folder and today upgraded to the latest version of deluge, same problem.

Edit: Here is an example of a legal torrent download that contains no files when I click the magnet link for me: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/7134068/ … ePirateBay

Anyone else having a similar issue or know of a fix?

Nevermind. I finally found this:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/29414
And it looks like maybe I just need to upgrade more packages because it was fixed today.

Yeah, just had to update.

I'm using libtorrent-rasterbar 0.16.5 and the magnet-link problem has returned...

I'm having the same problem. Why are they regressing so much?!

Re: Magnet torrent links do not contain any files in Deluge

You could try converting the magnet links to .torrent files

#! /bin/sh
cd ~/downloads || exit    # set your watch directory here
[[ "$1" =~ xt=urn:btih:([^&/]+) ]] || exit
hashh=${BASH_REMATCH[1]}
if [[ "$1" =~ dn=([^&/]+) ]];then
  filename=${BASH_REMATCH[1]}
else
  filename=$hashh
fi
echo "d10:magnet-uri${#1}:${1}e" > "meta-$filename.torrent"

EDIT: nvm, this doesn't produce valid .torrent files
