Purchase apps as in Ubuntu

Postby Nemo24 » Sun Aug 19, 2012 5:32 am


Again, Brand New Mint User.
Using Ubuntu, it happened to me to install some purchasable apps from the Ubuntu software center, and i'd like to install them again here in Mint (also because of the issues that you can find AND the many apps that cost 0.00$).
How could it be done? I saw the Ubuntu multiverse repo, but still I can't find those apps...

You'll need to install and use the ubuntu software centre.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

I tried this, but when I run the Software Center, the "For Purchase" section is empty. It would be a really nice addition to Linux Mint to be able to use this, or to have it in the Mint Software Manager would be even better!

Any idea how to enable the "For Purchase" section of the Ubuntu Software Center when in Linux Mint 13?
