Install MPLABX and C30 on Linux Mint

I just upgraded from the cluster that is Ubuntu to Mint and tried to install MPLABX and the C30 compiler from Microchip.  The install went flawless on Ubuntu 11.10 however there was a problem running the .bin files on Mint, something about GTK themes or something.  There is an easy fix add “–mode xwindow” after the bin files

sudo ./ --mode xwindow
sudo ./ --mode xwindow

Installs just fine

    Had this problem on Linux Mint 12.
    Works great, not getting that ugly message when trying to run the .bin installer.
    Thanks alot!
