Im running LMDE and i cant install 0ad http://www.wildfiregames.com/0ad i dont think that mint has their package in their repo. Althu it would be pretty cool if you can edit it to the repo.

I just solved the same problem

In software manager, click Edit/Source (I'm using the Chinese UI so I am not sure what it is in English)
Choose "Other software" and then click Add

Select one Debian reop from http://www.debian.org/mirror/list
I entered "deb http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free"

Then you will see 0AD in the software manager

Have fun :D

Add a Debian Testing repo to your sources.list if you are running LMDE. if you are running MInt 12 search for a Ubuntu PPA.
