  1. Nope. Doesn’t work.

    When I try the last method (since the Package Manager search did not find nightingale), I get the following:

    W: Failed to fetch “http://ppa.launchpad.net/nightingaleteam/nightingale-release/ubuntu/dists/nadia/main/binary-i386/Packages” 404 Not Found

    • Sound like you’re running on Linux Mint 14 Nadia? The output means you were error adding the repository. Don’t know why, but you can directly download the DEB installer from this page. For Linux Mint 14 Nadia 32-bit, click the link below:

      nightingale_1.12~beta-0~13056~quantal1_i386.deb

      Then install it via below command in terminal:

      sudo dpkg -i nightingale_1.12~beta-0~13056~quantal1_i386.deb; sudo apt-get -f install
  2. The installation works, and then it runs through a setup wizard, after that nothing happens.

  3. After setup wizard nothing happens. OS is Peppermint Linux.
