Repository for cnr?

Postby Foxblood » Fri May 09, 2008 2:51 pm

I'm fairly new to Mint. I see that CNR is available, however I don't appear to have the correct repo. How can I correct this?
Thanks on advance.

My normal Mint tool in the tray says no updates are available, CNR says 45 are available, so I would like to know what repositories CNR is using as well.

CNR probably works in much the same way mintInstall works, you download files that points you in the direction of the software, then download it.
So CNR doesn't use a repository per say, but each file include points to the location of the software. As for using it, if you really need the commercial software available at, go ahead. If you are just going for the free stuff, use APT...
