Are you sure you did "guix package -i transmission-remote-cli" as user?
I've just tried and got "~/.guix-profile/bin/transmission-remote-cli"
(it is a symlink to a wrapper but it doesn't matter), so most likely you
did something wrong.

If you run "guix build transmission-remote-cli", you'll see:


Now if you look at this directory, you'll see "bin" directory there.

All files placed in such "bin" directories appears in
"~/.guix-profile/bin" when you install packages.  The same for other
directories and files: symlinks to all of them are created for inside
profile after a package is installed.
