assuming you are using transmission on fedora-22 on the gnome-desktop:
Code:
transmission-gtk
and then clik on: file -> open url and browse to your torrent file.

...and since you don't provide ANY details at all, how do you think anyone will be able to? You don't tell us what kind of computer, running what version/distro of Linux, using what torrent software, or what you're doing/trying to do this.

Your question is much like saying "My car won't go...can you please help?" to a mechanic.

you need to use a torrent client with torrent files

as for downloading the " *.torrent " file

just click it and save
or right click and select "save as"

it is a tiny 500 and some odd bit file

I like Vuze but often use whatever may have been included, this VM has Qbittorrent.
