I do not know Transmission, it is a convenience-tool to download brushes
and the like?

Anyway you request made me try to find out, if I can do that. So I
registered with deviant art and downloaded this

The zip-file contained a folder that I copied to .gimp2.8/brushes in my
home-folder. Then I started GIMP and the brushes where available.

May work for you as well?

best regards
