generally what happens in other linux system, when we simply double click in any torrent file it opens with transmission and starts downloading immediately. but , here , in fedora 26 , the defaults has been set for open with transmission for torrent files , the process showing blank in the transmission box. all the features are showing inactive ( downloading , seeding, etc.. ). I simply want that when I will open any torrent file it will automatically start downloading with transmission application. how can I do that ?

My DE is KDE Plasma, ktorrent as bit torrent client, when I click on a torrent link or magnet link in a browser I'm asked to open a torrent client (ktorrent in my case) through the xdg-open protocol. I guess the same is true for Gnome. man xdg-open, man xdg-settings Hope this helps. What if you save a torrent file and open it in trasmission?
