Installing software


Trying to install software through Software Manager but when I click install it seems to be loading but reverts back to the install option. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Linux Mint 15

I would suggest you install a supported version of Mint such as Mint 13 or Mint 17. Mint 15 hasn't been supported since January, 2014.

Just a suggestion as a lot of people get confused about which are long term releases and why would Mint 13 still be supported and not Mint 15 so bookmarking that site might be a good idea if you plan to continue with Mint.
