This is an easy fix. transmission-qt.desktop reference a non existing transmission-qt icon. It should use the same icon as gtk interface. So, the .desktop file should be updated to have:

The icon is provided by transmission-common. Please, fix this problem in repo package.

As a workarround, simply modify it yourself, editing /usr/share/applications/transmission-qt.desktop as root or:

 cp /usr/share/applications/transmission-qt.desktop ~/.local/share/applications
 sed -i -e '/Icon/{s/transmission-qt/transmission/}' ~/.local/share/applications/transmission-qt.desktop
