How to get mintInstall to work correctly

Postby merlwiz79 on Wed Jun 06, 2007 2:41 pm

Open Terminal and copy and paste
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /usr/bin/mintInstall

Delete all the text and copy and paste
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
gksu /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintInstall.py $1

into Text editor and Save, now exit Text Editor.

Now every time you click Download and open with mintInstall it will work.

If the option to open with mintInstall disappears
Copy and Paste this into Terminal
Code: Select all
gksu nautilus /usr/bin

Right Click on mintInstall and click Proterties --> Permissions --> Check Allow executing file as program --> Close

Now try something from Software Portal.

//Edit by moderator//
mintInstall looks like it's frozen for a period during install.
Be patient!

Lemme play with the repository and release an updated version of mintInstall. I'm going to make this howto obsolete so fast it'll make its <head><title></title></head> spin :)
