Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I assume it's a Windows program? If it is, you can't install it natively. You'll have to use WINE. Search for it in the software center or synaptic. Also look at http://www.winehq.org/.

If it's built for ubuntu as well (highly unlikely) you can just install the .deb file or use the install script.

Yes, it's a Windows-only-program and it is working perfectly through wine (which i could install easily with software manager).
Merci beaucoup! That was easy :)
