most probably you are referring to different menu entries
+ mintInstall (capital I)
+ mintinstall (lowercase i)
if clicked they open the same app or a different one?
also what is the output of

Code: Select all

apt policy mintinstall

No, i have two binaries in /usr/bin/ , and they do the same, but i don't know if they use the same version of the software center...
This happened after the update to Pack 6

$ apt policy mintinstall
mintinstall:
Installed: 7.4.4
Candidate: 7.4.4
Version table:
*** 7.4.4 0
700 http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian/main amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

This is very strange because after the update...we should have only one...

Since the contents and names are identical, I just deleted one of them.

Code: Select all

$ apt content mintinstall | grep -i /usr/bin/mintinstall
/usr/bin/mintinstall
/usr/bin/mintInstall

Yeah, the package seems to contain them both (so you shouldn't really delete any of them manually) :)

that's very strange because the package is and always was mintinstall (all lowercase) http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/mintinstall/

Moreover, there are two more packages with such a "redundancy" inside :)

Code: Select all

$ apt content mintwifi | grep -i /usr/bin/mintwifi
/usr/bin/mintWifi
/usr/bin/mintwifi

Code: Select all

$ apt content mintbackup | grep -i /usr/bin/mintbackup
/usr/bin/mintbackup
/usr/bin/mintBackup

And the actual contents are different in all three cases: mintinstall and mintInstall are two identical files, mintBackup is a short shell script that just calls mintbackup, and mintwifi is a symlink to mintWifi.

You right!!

Maybe somebody forget to actualize something... :D

ls -la /usr/bin/mint?ifi
/usr/bin/mintwifi -> mintWifi
/usr/bin/mintWifi

and

ls -la /usr/bin/mint?ackup
/usr/bin/mintbackup
/usr/bin/mintBackup

and
ls -la /usr/bin/mint?nstall
/usr/bin/mintinstall
/usr/bin/mintInstall

In the case of mint?nstall they are equal...and call another program ..."/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py"!!

In the mint?ackup case they are different ... the mintBackup calls mintbackup which calls inside "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintBackup/mintBackup.py" !!

in the mint?ifi case , because the lower letter is a symbolic link...mintWifi calls "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/mintWifi.py" !!!

3 diferent cases :mrgreen:
