    Where is the transmission program located
    Code:
    locate transmission
    Code:
     $ inxi -F
    System:    Host: biker Kernel: 3.5.0-17-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: MATE 1.4.2  Distro: Linux Mint 14 Nadia
    You should be able to right click and use open with and tell it to use transmission from there. Then it will stick in the right click menu.

    You might have to install it first though. Here is how to check if it is installed.

    Code:
     apt-cache policy transmission
    transmission:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 2.61-0ubuntu2.2
      Version table:

    You can open Transmission then drag and drop the file in to the window.
