Using Mint software portal

Postby Dwood on Thu Jun 21, 2007 5:24 pm

I am trying to install VLC from the mint software portal using firefox. I clicked on the download icon and firefox asked if I wanted to open the file with Mintinstall and I clicked OK. Then ... nothing.
The download manager said the download was done imediatley and nothing else seems to be happening.

How do you download programmes from the portal and install them using MIntinstall?
Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

OK i realised I can just click on 'open' in the firefox download box and then everything was taken care of.
