Programs Not Installing In Mint 5


Hi, I am using Mint 5, and programs are not installing after download through the Mint software portal. They download, but installer gives a little window with, "open" and "extract" options, but they don't proceed to install.

Is there a solution?

I just got it through APT! But it was my third attempt.

Hi thanks, I found APT in mint worked, but also updated the software, then it all worked well.
