Did you try installing from "Software Manager"?

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/K9Copy
There are a couple of .deb packaged formats available..
--wget from the terminal, but not a compile from source data

Or you could try Gdebi and see if it can find that application (K9copy)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gdebi
--and you will also likey need to install gdebi: however that is a useful utility to have available for application searches

@ninomrki: software manager comes up empty.
@Dr Hu: we are told mint 15 is based on ubuntu 13.04. ubuntu 13.04 is called "raring ringtail". your page for K9copy is written for ubuntu users. it suggest the repository
http://packages.medibuntu.org/ (actually i think it's just a web page) in any case "medibuntu" project is closed and absorbed into ubuntu proper.

Again the question remains: how to add which repository?

A copy of K9copy as a .deb can be found here:

Although if I'm honest, I've yet to get it to compress the iso to find on a standard DVD as it is creating a 9meg iso. :(
