Okay, thanks for humouring me, it was worth a try. Then adding it to your favourites is probably the easiest solution.

I may not be very human or regular then. :lol:
Seven items is a short list and clicking the last entry isn't that much harder than clicking the first one. Or you could add it to your favourites and not search at all.

Other idea: Have you tried searching for 'tor ', so with a space after it?

You want him to... fix the alphabet?
It's not a bug. There is nothing to fix. If you want it to come out on top (even if I can't understand why that matters) then change the name. Easy-peasy.

Because of the alphabet.
To change this, change the name in the menu so it starts with A. 8)

Don't do this. Since synaptic is a graphical application, it must always be opened with gksudo, not sudo. (In KDE it's kdesudo.)
Using sudo to open a graphical application can and will result in problems with permission.

Re: Wifi Mint 18

Is anything showing in the driver manager? I've installed Mint in more than one Thinkpad where I needed to activate a driver that was suggested there, before the wifi would work.
