Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm trying really hard to convert, but I'm having a really hard time getting help with some stuff. Hope maybe you guys can help.
I'm using Mint 13 KDE. Installed Transmission, and have a weird issue. When I go to the preferences, and click on the speed tab it crashes the program. All the other tabs work fine.
I did an internet search, and found an issue with the Oxygen theme, but I'm not using that theme, and even if I try to change to a different theme the same thing happens. Thought that maybe an update my fix it, but not exactly sure how to update oxygen-gtk3.
There is a bug report at Ubuntu, bug #953697, but I can't find it. I found all these other bug reports, but they just say, "This particular crash has already been reported and is a duplicate of bug #953697, so is being marked as such", but bug #953697 is missing.
I tried to update transmission using sudo apt-add-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade, but it didn't fix the problem. It did update a bunch of stuff that I wasn't really intending to update, and I hope that I didn't screw anything up.
Oh yeah, and ktorrent just really isn't cutting it. I tried it, and even with my transmission problems its working better.
Any help is greatly appreciated
Never mind I got my answer over at the mint forums. I uninstalled, and installed the QT version, which fixed it
