Re: Brain-training games?

Example: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3008

Re: Brain-training games?

Open and login to Synaptic Package Manager; type brain in the Quick filter box. I see some that may interest you, and they're just a few clicks away from trying them out and having some fun. :-)

Re: Get an error message when I try to install Gnome.

You will need to use either Mint 17 or 18.
Mint 14 is obsolete, the servers and repositories have already been taken down or mothballed.
