alarm-clock-applet
"simple, reliable and easy to use"
4
connectagram
"Excellent Hinting system. Dictionary definition available for all completed words. a good, but very plain casual game with no bells and whistles or congratulatory animations."
4
minetest
"MInetest is awesome, get the latest build , mods, and texture packs from minetest.net"
5
pdfchain
"Runs, but doesnt open,display, or allow editing of pdf files on my mint14 x64 system."
1
gnome-paint
"not great. simple but lacking some very basic and necessary features."
2
firefox
"This is my favorite browser. "
5
gtk-vector-screenshot
"Great idea! but theres no way to configure the program and choose how to save the files before the save window opens. No help or about info is available from the screenshot button interface, On my desktop the program interface is just a single floating button. No man entry. Wont screenshot the entire desktop with open windows. It DOES create true vector screenshots that are fully editable and scalable when it works. Works only on gtk3 application windows. Developers: This little app is a wonderful idea, please continue to build upon it."
3
ttf-ubuntu-font-family
"Clear readable text in coordinated styles. A utilitarian rather than decorative font collection, usefull alternative to some of the more common fonts used for simple readable text. "
3
ttf-adf-accanthis
"A clean, sophisticated, and appealing print font for general use."
4
aqsis
"As the description says, this is a comand line rendering engine that adheres to the renderman standard. I use it with other applications like Blender 3d, and it consistently delivers excellent results."
4
ckeditor
"You are meant to install this in the root directory of your website. It is intended to be used only from your website. If your looking for a desktop web editing application this is not the tool for you. Difficult for the beginner to use. Where does this package put the application files when you use it to "install" ckeditor on your Mint computer? The software description should tell you that, and the method for calling/opening the application should be explained. (because it can not be accessed and used in the usual way)"
3
synaptic
"very good, software manager is better for some things, synaptic is essential for others."
4
apt
"Yes, its a fine tool. Apt does not get enough love. I make a lot of syntax and typing errors, so it can drive me crazy, but I'd be lost without it."
4
python-uniconvertor
"Provides or extends the file conversion capabilities of many useful apps invisibly. If you need it and don't have it, trust me you'll notice. Does it's job well. A Must have if you use vector software."
4
inkscape
"Inkscape is Excellent. There are some really good tutorials on-line and you can find a few of them at inkscapetutorials.wordpress.com . "
5

ltris
"I wasn't expecting much from this game at first , but it's fun to play."
4
rhythmbox
"Downloads are a bit slow, but I like it much better than Banshee."
4
gourmet
"imports mealmaster and mastercook format cookbook files as well as html pages. built in recipe timer, browse recipes plugin, and other features put it way ahead of some other recipe management options. "

p7zip-full
"Best compression / decompression software ever."
5
cultivation
"This game ran very slow on my computer, and character control was very poor, even though the graphics are very simple."
2
freedink
"Fun, and funny game. ( not suitable for children, due to some risque' Innuendo and twisted humor )"
4
audacity
"Wonderful, easy to use, and reliable. "
4
yofrankie
"The graphics are Very, very good, but its never run at a playable rate for me on any computer I have access to. Might be better for people with newer or more high-end computers and better graphics hardware."
3
gweled
"the jewel images are nice, and the game is ok. The game could be improved with the addtions of sound effects, recognizable levels, and a nice player reward/incentive, like an interesting animation that plays on successful level completion."
3
sunflow
"a photo realistic rendering engine, used with sweet home and other 3d apps. NIce for outdoor lighting effects and architectural renderings."

libaqsis-dev
"Needed for intergration with third party applications."

3
frozen-bubble
"A simple, enjoyable game with better than usual graphics. You fire frozen bubbles from an ice cannon, and they're sticky...so watch your aim."
4
avant-window-navigator
"This is a lovely dock. Relys on compiz if you want to use any effects, but its easy to use, and can be customized."
4
grafx2
"Not for everyone, such a basic pixel editor should be much easier to learn and use."
2
gtk-theme-switch
"Currently I can see no advantage to using this package, except that it does detect and identify some errors in theme files. For management of the desktop theme I found the desktop appearance manager a far better option. This little app did cause problems with my display."
2
gnome-do
"Didn't work properly for me on mint 10, or mint 9. Broke several applications. I like the idea behind it, and would have liked to use it, it just didn't play nice with my system."
1
cairo-dock
"It didnt work well for me, interfered with , and even disabled some applications. I liked the look of it, so maybe I'll try it again on something other than Mint 10."
3
firestarter
"I prefer this to the default firewall configuration tool, its easier to understand and the beginning set-up wizard is helpful. I do wish it could be set to run on system start more easily."
4
simdock
"Didn't work for me on Mint 10 Julia."
2
solarwolf
"You pilot a high-speed prototype space ship, Your mission? Retrieve power ups, shields,and other goodies without getting blown away by the numerous Guard ships and other hazards. . . Will you survive? I don't normally like fast paced action arcade style games, but this one is Fun, and addictive. I wish you got more ships! I play it, I like it, I think you will too. Good graphics, simple controls, challenging and enjoyable."
4
okular
"Excellent, Easy to use document viewer. "
4
eog
"Lets you view one image at a time, default image viewer in gnome mint. No fancy features but good display quality."
3
blender
"Excellent! Yes, Learning any 3d software is going to take time and effort, and that's true of Blender too. For some help getting started check out the links to learning and educational resources on the website at Blender.org."

pysolfc
"Solitair fans will enjoy this game."
4
pysolfc-cardsets
"This package is a great help if you want to play pysol. It provides optional card sets of amazing variety."
4
xwelltris
"This is rather an odd game with unusual Visual perspective. I expect some people will really like it, and some will really hate it, but few will be nuetral in their opinions once they try it. The shape of the play arena is more like a gridded box, than a glass or well. The player looks down onto the interior of the play space from above."
2
flight-of-the-amazon-queen
"This game looks like it might be fun, but doesn't work on my mint 9 computer. The total lack of help files makes it impossible to know why.There should be in game clues to tell players what to do, but if they're there they arent obvious...or maybe the same thing that prevents controls from working properly is interefering with them. I hoped this game would help put the lie to the common conception that there are no good games for linux...but it defintately didn't. I May revise my opinion later, but for now I can't reccomend this game."
2
frozen-bubble-data
"This is not a "clone" of any other game I ever played. You fire frozen bubbles from an ice cannon, but they're sticky...so watch your aim. You need these data files so get them when you install the game for the first time. Simple game play, enjoyable , better than usual graphics for a linux game."
4
vlc
"One of the best video players for Linux. Easy to use. Has occasional problems with DVD playback on my Newly installed Linux mint. I used this player on windows too, and its over-all performance is very good."
