How to make Chrome use Deluge for magnet links in Fedora

Sep 2014 update: This was written for Fedora 17. Apparently the desktop file has been renamed to deluge.desktop (the sane choice).

The three things you need to know:
1) Unlike Firefox, Chrome uses xdg-open to choose the default program to open a file.
2) You can set the default application for each type by using xdg-mime.
3) The Fedora desktop file for Deluge is fedora-deluge.desktop and not deluge.desktop.

xdg-mime default fedora-deluge.desktop x-scheme-handler/magnet
