HI guys, I'm looking at installing an application on Mint, but the repositories available are labeled for Ubuntu versions.

 

Which version of Ubuntu is likened to Mint 16 Petra.?

TsVk!, you're likely already aware of it, just in case you're not, Linux Mint 16 has been out of support for some time now. 

 

It may be best to move on to 17.1 at this point. However, that's your decision to make. Some software may update to current versions, while others may not. 

 

Just wanted to let you know. :thumbup2:
