The me-tv software for Linux Mint 13 Maya was not working for me, but I found out that if you download this tarball: https://launchpad.net/debian/+archive/primary/+files/me-tv_1.3.7.orig.tar.gz and install it by running the commands below.
./autogen.sh make make install
Then the software will work. The new version 2.00 release is broken, the client-server model does not work at all. The developers really should have left the software as it was, it worked perfectly. That is the problem with the Linux distributions, they are pushing out new versions of application packages all of the time and they are not checking if they are actually working properly before they bundle up the software in a package and release it. I had some problems with the interface when running this with the KDE 4.8.3 desktop, but it works fine with MATE. You could try and install the Debian package for this application in Linux Mint, but that would be fraught with difficulty, installing from source worked perfectly for me, so that is how I fixed this problem. In Linux Mint 14, this software works perfectly without having to go through this procedure. But this did work for me on Linux Mint 13.
