I'm new to all this. Thanks for replies.
The desktop that Mint uses (GNOME 2) is now unsupported, and you can't have it in distros like Fedora that use the newest packages. GNOME 3 is very different.
You might want to try Xfce, which probably has the most similar feel to GNOME 2. YOu can even try Xfce in Mint to see if you like it. Run this command:
apt-get install xfce4
And now you will be able to choose Xfce as an option when you log in.
