Ubuntu Software Center lets you browse and install thousands of free and paid applications available for Ubuntu. You can view available software by category, or search quickly by name or description. You can also examine the software already installed, and remove items you no longer need.

To install or remove software using USC, you need administrator access on the computer.

it's a must have, specially the feature that shows you the related files, or add-ons that are compatible with the App you have selected

Oh look i got it to work (from http://jeffhoogland.blogspot.com/2010/06/howto-use-ubuntu-software-center-in.html) in the terminal: "sudo apt-get install software-center" then "wget http://www.tophattwaffle.com/wp-content/files/jeff/custom__init__" next is "sudo rm /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/distro/__init__.py" and lastly is "sudo mv custom__init__ /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/distro/__init__.py" hope i helped!

As much as I love Mint, I have to admit that the Ubuntu Software Centre is much better than the Mint equivalent. But I too cannot make it run on Mint. Please fix it!

I enjoy the features such as icons for the packages that have them, but it doesn't seem to run for me under Mint.

This has many a thing the Linux Mint Software Manager lacks, and I prefer using it.
