Linux Mint 12 brings many new features such as the new desktop Gnome Shell and also includes some tools found in previous releases.
For the management of applications Linux Mint are Software Manager utility with which we can install and manage applications in our Distribution. Unfortunately Software Manager does not always work properly and, above all, is not as complete as Ubuntu Software Center which adds more information and details about the applications.
Since Linux Mint 12 is based on Ubuntu 11,10 Oneiric we can install Ubuntu Software Center for the management of our applications, they need to be careful to make some adjustments to work correctly on Lisa, here's how:
First install Ubuntu Software Center on Linux Mint to do so we start the terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install software-center
Once installed more terminal type:
sudo cp -r /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/distro/Ubuntu.py /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/distro/LinuxMint.py
gksudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/distro/LinuxMint.py
we will open our text editor Gedit Where will we replace the line
After replacing a save and close Gedit.
Now we Ubuntu Software Center of fully functional on Linux Mint 12.
