no 1.6 ...
@esmobg As this is not a default repository you should ALWAYS include references so that everybody can verify that the PPA is legit and that the code is safe.
You would not trust anyone in your door would you? I would not at least not without proper credentials. Installing from an unverified PPA is likely safe but can also be giving your house keys and bank card away....
Trust is something earned.
1st ->I installed cinnamon 1.6.7 almost 1 month ago so 1.6.4 is not latest one.
source is checked and not dangerous
second guide ubuntu overlaps with mint
First What does a tutorial about installing into Ubuntu do in Mint tutorials?
Second shouldn't this possibly belong in Cinnamon?
Third and most important. There is no verification regarding the PPA. Installing software as superuser from an unverified source is EXTREMLY dangerous
