Sorry I know it's in the wrong section but it's late here and I have something else than write, but it's important. When I'd try to run synaptic, a window opening and say that : COULD NOT GRAB YOUR MOUSE A malicious client may be eavesdropping on your session or you may have just clicked a menu or some application just decided to get focus Try again
I'd install Romeo repo 5 hours ago and its' maybe just a bug, but in this case like in an other, I would warm Mint devellopers about it. That happening only on Mint menu, not Gnome menu. With Gnome menu Mintinstall 5 is running perfectly.
So, need to sleep. I hope an admin will be nice t place it in the more apropriest place.
