"Not a fan of how Mint "installs" things. Don't even bother installing it from here. Just go to their website and download it from there and follow their instructions. Mint can't install it correctly. "

"Nope. Didn't work for me. Maybe that's why when you hit the link "Proud Cherokee Users" you get a 404 error..."
