[Slackbuilds-users] Transmission: transmission-qt client does not load translations

I've been using Transmission for the last five years or so, it's my 
favourite BitTorrent client. Until recently I've always used the 
transmission-gtk client, since it integrates nicely into Xfce.

Currently I'm fiddling with my personal blend of KDE, so I thought I'd 
rather use the transmission-qt client. The program seems to work OK, but :

1) There's no desktop entry for the Qt client. Which is not a big deal, 
since I can simply create one manually and/or fire it up from a 
graphical terminal.

2) Translations aren't loaded, the Qt client only displays the interface 
in english. My workstation uses fr_FR.utf8 as locale, and sometimes 

I googled about this (transmission-qt translation), and the problem 
seems to affect many users. Various bug reports suggest to simply 
update, but version 2.77 (from SBo) is still affected by it. And I've 
found no usable solution for this yet.

Any suggestions?
