I've just moved from Ubuntu to Mint. For my personal taste, it fits better. All the Mint tools seems to be a bit more intuitive to me than the ones in Ubuntu.
However the Mint's Software Manager (mintInstall) lacks the same categories as present in the equivalent Ubuntu tool. I know that I could use the Synaptic Package Manager to add or remove applications, but, I believe, the point of the Software Manager is to browse for some application you don't even know it exist and give it a try.
So my question is: is there a way to add categories to the Software Manager? I am particularly interested in the "Science" category of the equivalent Ubuntu Add/Remove Programs. (I am obviously talking about not only the category but all the software that falls in that category)
I'm guessing that it is a question of add new repositories...
Thank you in advance.
(I am using Linux Mint 8 )
