Transmission crash in Mint KDE

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
