5 I don't care about the low score. It works like a charm, is reliable and doesn't waste my time.

2 Good for beginners to find applications. The 'review' function used here AND the Community web site is a terribly clunky, single line input; this is embarassing - please get someone to fix it! UPDATE: AFTER TWO YEARS the review submit function Still reports Connection Timeouts often.

5 Looks amazing with the new look in LM 18.3/19.0! Only problems are 1. searching in LM19 takes a very long time (it didn't in LM18.3) and 2. it sometimes reports the wrong size for packages (for example, a 17KB package being 1GB).

3 In the Russian localization menu in Mint 18.3 (mate) x64, on the Programming Error item. It looks like it is not beautiful, it looks like (Программи- рование), in general a phrase with a break.).

2 Seg faults about 1/2 the time right at startup. Doesn't appear to be capable of remembering user account information. Use aptitude / apt-get instead.

5 Ausgezeichnet, ob in Linux Mint 18/18.1, oder in Linux Mint Debian !!! Und besser als das Software-Center ab Ubuntu 16.04.....was nicht alles anzeigt, wie z.B. Battle for Wesnoth usw. Dies war auch ein Grund für meine anderen Familienmitglieder von Ubuntu zu Linux Mint zu wechseln ;) Weiter so

4 Much more self explanatory than Synaptic. Sadly, the comment feature has been buggy for years. I (and other people) always get told our community login information is incorrect, even though it isn't. (I wrote this on the community website where my login works just fine, including with the new password I just made hoping to resolve the issue (which it didn't). Pity, considering this feature is so useful for others and would be for me, too.

2 Not working as it should. you can only select one package at the time, installin packages mostly fail. [request] add a terminal screen to see what mintinstall is doing ... Synaptic still the best EVER!!

2 Nice looking and I like this sort of software manager in Linux because it gives guidance on what applications are best supported for the flavor of desktop I'm using... HOWEVER... this is waaaayyyy more buggy that what I'm used to coming from ubuntu. I have version 7.5.1 and it hangs pretty often. I'm going to stick with synaptic and good old 'sudo apt-get install' on the command line. Really a shame though.

4 Very handy when it works, but I've seen it often freeze up, especially when installing multiple programs at once. Also, it is often the case that the latest version of a particular program is not in the repository.

1 Installing NVIDIA proprietary drivers kills this app! Most of the times it does not get past the splash screen on Linux Mint 15 (Cinnamon, x86, Pentium 4). Nvidia error discussed here: forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=136214 Solution: apt-get install muon-installer

1 It is not comfortably and not elegantly. The previous version was much more successful. Why not develop a MintInstall v.6? It's the same regression!

3 My main gripe is that version numbers are not shown on index, which would be a time-saver. ----Second gripe, the indexing/tagging/search just ain't very good, and is presumably un-refinable.----Passing, third gripe/bugg: I just went to make a comment on a package from within Software Manager. (This in Mint12, live.) It says "(X)" "Your username is incorrect. To change it, click on the 'Edit' menu and select 'Account information'." I do so, but it then says "(X)" "Your username is incorrect. To change it, click on the 'Edit' menu and select 'Account information'." (The same, after I stop SoftwareManager, log into Mint forum, try SoMan again.) So I back out, and WHEY! it loses the comment I typed out again, again. (Bah!)-----SO (gripe), I come here(community soft review) & search for "Software Manager" as package. NoFind :-( I have to search as 'content', then it finds. Sloppy. <<<<<Meta-gripe 1: I went to split this comment into several entries, but 'software review' just over-writes my previous comment. "Feature", eh? <<<< Meta-gripe 2: 'software review' is another one with an annoying comment deformatter. How is that helpful? <<<<< Meta-gripe 3 : inexplicit comment length limit.

4 The new mintinstall in Linux Mint 9 is very nice. It got to be so easy to use I had the feeling I should open a terminal and install my software with apt-get just to have the feeling it's done. Kind of funny, but it really is very easy. Still, there's room for improvement so I gave it four stars. :)

1 Pretty but not practical. SLOW (long pauses, especially on startup). Hard to guess what category they want you to look in for an app and it's not evident what category it would be found under.
