The New MintInstall?

Postby GameKing505 on Sat Dec 06, 2008 12:13 pm

I've seen some screenshots of the new mintInstall and am awaiting Felicia with baited breath, but I have a question. Does the new the new xml based graphical browsing of apps only allow you to install from the Mint Portal? Could I, for example, graphically browse for something in the repositories, or no?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just checked and nope, doesn't look like it I'm afraid. :(

'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.

Unless I'm missing something here, the MintInstall has separate tabs for GetDeb, APT and Mint. The APT option is selectable for either the Mint of Ubuntu repository.

Looks pretty complete for me.

Yes, but it doesn't have a graphical synaptic like list for packages. Presumably because synaptic is there already.
