If you know the name of the file(s) needed,
then use Synaptic to install them.

I've had to do this, on occasion.

apt-get search packagename

Or apt-get install apt-file
then run apt-file update as user not root
then you can do apt-file search filename

It is best to stick with the packages in the repositories.

Probably not ?

apt-cache search <name> ( or part of name )
will work in Mint.
