I use Ubuntu Hardy Heron. But I want to use Mintinstall. Is there any way to do this?

I agree. Try out Linux Mint. I find it better than Ubuntu.

Mua-ha-ha-ha! :lol:
Seriously, Mint Install is just one of the features that makes LinuxMint easier & more friendly to use. You should try the whole Mint experience. It really IS "Linux (and Ubuntu) done right".

Either add the romeo repository to your Ubuntu system or get the debs for mintSystem and mintInstall from packages.linuxmint.com

Ubuntu is better than Mint install.

In mint they removed the System > Administration > Software Sources. Menu.

Why remove a needed tool? I'm seriously thinking of just running regular Ubuntu, because I don't like using the terminal any more than I must.

I have used and donated since 3.0 and even encourage friends to use Mint also, and will continue to do so, but it seems they made a mistake by removing needed tools from the Ubuntu package. now you have to go to the terminal to get third party apps.

I hope the System > Administration > Software Sources.menu will be restored in future versions.

I also like the Software Sources application. So I installed it when I saw it wasn't there by default. Simple solution to a simple problem, and it doesn't require any whining.

This is Linux, man. If you don't like using a terminal, you're going to have nothing but problems.
