You are wrong! Mint 10 is a 100% derivative of Ubuntu Linux. In fact I used the Mint 10 package which is based on the Ubuntu 10 OS.

Are you seriously trying to tell me that the FPC Team does not answer questions about Ubuntu packaging, which is after all the biggest Linux distribution. My understanding is that Mint is the second biggest Linux distribution, after Ubuntu (as claimed by the Mint website).

Where IS the Mint specific packaging FPC list? Does it even exist?

Information makes the world go around. Not trying to put triangles into square holes. :-) Sometimes it works with a hammer.
