I use transmission-daemon and web interface for downloading torrent and text browsers (links, lynx).

How I can handle magnet-links in text browsers?

I added x-scheme/magnet with transmission-daemon in applications, but I get message 'Unsupported URL scheme'.

You probably tried to set the magnet: URI handler in the system (like Gnome).

Unfortunately links uses its own URI handlers configuration. You can either set it from the UI: F10 > Setup > Mail and telnet > Magnet program. (or directly in the ~/.links2/links.cfg as magnet option) Magnet URIs are supported in links since version 2.3.

The handler for transmission-daemon should look like

transmission-remote -a %

The character % gets replaced by the magnet URI.
