add/install from ubuntu

Postby 4thwall on Wed Sep 26, 2007 5:37 am

Okay I want to install linux mint from a friend of mine whos new to linux. Linux Mint has everything I need for him already installed, except one thing:

The alternate to synaptic manager, the add/install menu ubuntu uses as more of a default/alternative, its essentially synaptic with less options but is more user friendly, anyone want to tell me where I can get this to install it?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The name of that program is gnome-app-install ... I just checked by looking at the properties of the launcher in my Ubuntu 7.04's GNOME menu ... Maybe you can get it via this command from the Ubuntu repos?
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gnome-app-install


Here is the package info I get from one of my Ubuntu 7.04 installations:

apt-cache show gnome-app-install
