"Hello, I am helping with the maintenance of the BOINC Debian package. I have no idea if Mint provides a BOINC package of its own or if it is falling back on something we provide. The Debian and Ubuntu folks collaborate closely on the BOINC packaging, which is very rewarding. Especially now for all those NVidia and OpenCL libraries to run stuff on graphics cards that are named differently across distributions it would be great to hear back about the compatibility of our newer packages like that of 7.0.24 with the Mint environment. WorldCommunityGrid, Einstein@Home and Rosetta are my pet projects. Many thanks for your contributions, keep going."
