Are there any fully functioning torrent managers for KDE?
I always use KTorrent, with magnet links imported through clipboard.

KTorrent looks like it should be good, but as I said, it fails to
download anything. I haven't imported magnetic links from clipboard but
rather opened them directly in ktorrent where they also failed to do
I vaguely remember having problems with normal torrent links several years
back, but since I've already gotten used to using magnet links with
transmission-qt I am also using these with ktorrent.

But just to check I've clicked the BitTorrent link here [1] and chose to open
it with ktorrent and the download started as expected.
