Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well, something with Python and true type fonts . . . don't think mintInstall was ever tested with SID, Mint is based on Testing . . good luck.

I have the same problem, but as far as I know just using the testing repo. Just did a fresh install of Mint XFCE DE 64bit:
Ran full update using update manager (of levels 1-3, 19.00 GMT 09/07), default settings.
Installed Wine 1.3.24 using .deb binaries linked on winehq.
Installed nvidia drivers using sgfxi.
--> mintinstall does not run. Same error in terminal as magedx9. Tried reinstalling python-imaging and mintinstall to no avail.

Probably some new Python stuff from Sid has just hit Testing. I'm sure that the Mint team will notice this if they're not too busy with the new update packs.
