Install Handbrake

Handbrake is an open source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. I recently switched to Linux Mint 13 and the MATE desktop environment.

This article shows you how to install Handbrake on Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk

Linux Mint 13 Maya

Linux Mint 13 “Maya” is now available. It comes in two desktop editions. You can choose either Mate 1.2 or Cinnamon 1.4 desktop. Linux Mint 13 is based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS meaning it’s also LTS. It will be supported for 5 years until April 2017. In addition to the desktop environments, Linux Mint 13 is also available on 32-bit and 64-bit processors. Get Linux Mint 13 today.
