Re: Linux Mint's software manager on Q4os

I can't answer your question.
All I can say is that Q4OS comes with "Software Centre" from where you can install some applications, including "Update Manager", which takes care of updating installed packages. And of course "apt" command line tool is also available. Once I have understood how it works, I didn't feel the need of any other tool to add / update / remove packages.


Q4OS machines: [Samsung R519 - Pentium T4200 2.0 GHz - 4 GB RAM - 500 GB SSD] & [Sony Vaio - Pentium P6000 1.87 GHz - 8 GB RAM - 500 GB SSD]

I don't think it's possible (without heavy modifications) because it depends on "mint-common" & "app-install-data" which are not installables on a classic q4os installation. But as hchiper says, Software center is cool for some essentials apps, and apt is available (which is one the best package manager at my opinion). And I want to add that you can install Synaptic package manager, which is very good too.
