It is not included by default in Mint. You can install it using Synaptic, It will download the package from the Internet and install it for you. Most programs can be installed this way. :)

Hi all you wine fanatics.

What's wrong with a nice Mint cocktail with some Cognac or any brandy in a 50/50 formula? It will even kill viruses.

Please be more specific. How did you try to install it and what error message do you get?

YES !! What you need is the Add-On CD :)
It's not released yet, but Jon is working hard on it.
