As we know Mint Is based on Ubuntu but Ubuntu doesn't have some tools available in Mint and some of them are very useful and are "must-have"

so there the procedure:

open terminal, type:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ qiana main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mint.list'

then update by

sudo apt-get update

normally an error should happen at the end about the public key

so type :

sudo apt-get install linuxmint-keyring

a permission will be asked, say yes to the prompt

re-update by

sudo apt-get update

this time no more error should happen and you will have now access to every Mint tolls

that is it.
