Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I don't think this has been implemented in MintInstall yet. But if u REALLY have to install multiple applications at a time, there are 2 ways i know of:

1) use synaptic package manager...u can tick mulitple packages....(this may be risky if you are new to linux as u may accidentally install random packages)


2) install the gnome-app-install by searching it synaptic or by typing this into the terminal:
Code: Select all
apt install gnome-app-install

When installed, this application should appear in your menu somewhere as "Add/Remove" You can tick multiple applications that you want to install.

Hope this helps and good luck

If M$FT Windows is the "standard", then I guess Linux must be above the standard.

The CLI command you are looking for is:

sudo apt-get -y install program1 program2 program3... program_n
