We should give users the possibility to install new applets with ease.

For example some applets requires to "copy as root in /usr/etc../etc../" something. But most users have no idea of what "as root" means or where are system folders (like /usr/...).

To install new applets, LinuxMint should include something like just an "install" button and not "download, extract the archive, copy files, type something in terminal, etc..." which is not user friendly.
