Install twinkle on linux Mint 14 Mate o cinnamon

Hello, I discovered linux a year ago coming from windows and i must say linux is much better and wonderful to discover ( I am 79 year old).
I tried first ubuntu but I don't like unity and so I went to mint, debian 6.0 and I liked them; Now comes my question, before I used phone over voip ( voipcheap f.i.) directly, but now I'm forced to use twinkle wich I did install many times till mint 13 and 14. Can somebody tell me how to do it. Many thanks.

Try doing:
apt-cache search twinkle
Then do
apt-cache search voip
I know that twinkle is in Debian Squeeze, but not testing.
There are a number of voip clients in there.

If I remember, Mint uses testing repos.
