Hi,

so I guess you found the documentation in /usr/share/doc/memest86/. On Debian derived systems (such as Mint), it is good to get into the habit of checking /usr/share/doc/<package>/ whenever you install something. The README.Debian often provides a succinct description of how to use the software provided by the package.

HTH,

Evo2.
