## LINUX MINT REPOSITORIES
## -----------------------
##
## Cassandra (Linux Mint 3.0)
deb http://www.linuxmint.com/repository cassandra/
##
## Romeo (Linux Mint Unstable)
## deb http://www.linuxmint.com/repository romeo/


## OTHER REPOSITORIES

## Canonical (RealPlayer10, Opera, DesktopSecure etc...)
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main
##
## Medibuntu (Codecs and extra applications)
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ feisty free non-free
Everything is default, except for the Medibuntu repo, because they have changed the address since the release of Cassandra.

If you are using Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn, and want to get the Mint menu (or other Mint packages), simply adding the repos to sources.list and apt-getting mint stuff doesn't work.

I download the mintdisk package browsing Bianca repository:

I installed mintdisk*.deb, then you should use synaptic again and mintmenu would be installed.

(I'm Feisty Fawn user).

It works for me, Good luck!
I've yet to test that.
