splashtop client on mint?

ive been having a difficult time trying to get splashtop client to run on linux.. my goal here is to use my laptop with mint 17 to stream apps and PC games from my windows computer (that i use for gaming) as an alternative to steam in home streaming because there are non steam apps id like to run remotely

so.. seems the client they have only works for ubuntu 12.04 (thats like three years ago?).. why they havent updated their stuff to something a bit more newer and more relevant i dont know but its getting pretty aggravating trying to get it to work with something newer.. also splashtop is optimized for AMD GPUs so ill get better performance with it than with something else

so, can anyone get this to work on mint 17?.. or am i better off switching to another distro that maybe has a working package for a more updated system?.. perhaps arch?

this is the error i get

Traceback (most recent call last):

What did you install and where did you get it?
