Synaptic Package Manager (resolved)

Post by GELvdH »

I reinstalled linuxmint 19.1 on my laptop with a clean drive and encripted the drive. Now the synaptic package manager, the driver manager and the archive manager will not run. the SPM and the DM briefly flash on the screen when selected and than vanish. The AM comes up but it shows a blank page. :?: :?:

Reinstalled linuxmint and everything is working , BUT when I try to install nordvpn from the SPM it does not show it as being present in the index. On my desktop the SPM shows nordvpn as a package, tried to update the SPM but it still does not show, any ideas.

It looks like you have to download a file and install from the nordvpn site

You need to add the nordVPN third party repo as per https://nordvpn.com/download/linux/
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.
