Can't browse ubuntu repos.

Postby wildman4god » Tue Nov 11, 2008 3:05 pm

I have just installed linux mint 6 rc1 and I want to install software but mint install only lets me browse the mint repos, is it not supposed to let me browse the ubuntu repos as well, or is this a bug that needs fixed. Also mint install, while it does give a screen shot, which is usefull. it doesn't give a whole lot of info, I think for ease of use ubuntu's default add/remove program works a lot better. :!:

I think you have misunderstood mintInstall - it installs apps not only in the Mint and Ubuntu repos but found on many locations so it is not the Mint version of "ubuntu's default add/remove"
It's not there to browse Ubuntus repos - for that use Synaptic (Package manager)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
