Can I use mintUpdate in Ubuntu?

I am looking to use mintUpdate as the update manager on an Ubuntu 12.04 system. Would that work as easily as finding a .deb of mintUpdate and running it? Might there be a ppa that has the latest version? Anyone with experience in this?

Workspace switching via mouse wheel – how?

I’d like to be able to switch between workspaces by using a keyboard shortcut, such as Win-2, as was possible in Gnome 2. Also, desktop-based switching with your mouse wheel would be nice. Any chance I can do this with Cinnamon?

RC of Linux Mint 13 is available

The release candidate of Linux Mint 13 (Maya) is available on the mirror servers. I am writing this from a live session of the x64/Cinnamon flavour, and I am pretty impressed. Very good speed, it looks very neat, no real glitches so far.
