Transmission is a program specifically for using bittorrent. If you
have downloaded a file that is not a .torrent file you don't need to
use Transmission, you already have the file you want.

Perhaps the file you have downloaded is an archive of some sort (zip,
rar, gz etc.) that you need to uncompress. I'm not sure exactly which
tool you would use to do that in xfce (the desktop environment that
ubuntustudio uses), but you might be able to just right click on it
(in your downloads folder) and click "extract here" or something
