Mint Program Downloads Are Difficult To Find?


Hi, I have been downloading to Mint, Wine is there, but after using a terminal to download from an Ubuntu repository, I could not find the additional programs anywhere.

Also I tried downloading through the Mint repository, these few programs too, are not in the lists.

I could do with a bit of light shed on the subject.

There may be other lists.. This one was just a quick 'ubuntu repo mirror' search.

If you are new to Mint or Linux in general and want a simple user guide on how to use and install Mint without all the confusing jargon then please consult our User Guide:
http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/linuxmint.c...uide/EN-v1.pdf ... /EN-v1.pdf

If you ask a question which is already covered in the guide you will simply be recommended to download the guide, so you are speeding up the process if you just read it in the first place. Although if something in the guide fails to make sense to you or you want more explanation then don't hesitate to ask it here on the forums, we will do our best to help you.
