Hi everyone. I have tried to install packetfence on Mint and I have had no luck. Is there something I need to change in able to use the apt-get method? or will it just not work on Mint?

You would do this:
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi

$ wget

$ sudo gdebi packetfence_5.0.0_all.deb

Ok I got packetfence installed but then when I did the third command
$ sudo gdebi packetfence_5.7.0_all.deb
I get 'This package is uninstallable
Dependency is not satisfiable: apache2.2-common'
