Mint Install. Where are downloaded files saved

Postby billybob » Fri Sep 14, 2007 9:06 am

I have install games from mint install and don't want to download the big ones again but add them to my Aptoncd

They are in the same location
/var/cache/apt/archives/
mintInstal is a frontend to apt - it does things like temporarily adding repositories and more

If I type sudo mintInstall in a console I get:

warnings.warn("apt API not stable yet", FutureWarning)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintInstall.py", line 426, in <module>
home = sys.argv[3]
IndexError: list index out of range

EDIT: or maybe I have it wrong... is this command only valid for installing from the livecd?

@ Stretch
You are only supposed to use mintInstall from the software portal
http://www.linuxmint.com/software/
unless you intend to make a mintfile
