I would like to know have you ever tried using a virtual desktop? I would suggest you to install it on windows desktop and acess the same windows virtual desktop on your Linux Mint 18.2 itself thats te power of cloud !

For anyone running into similar issues in Linux Mint 19, I was able to resolve this by temporarily modifying /etc/lsb-release to include the Ubuntu 18.04 information instead, installing the package, and then reverting /etc/lsb-release. The installation script uses this file to determine the OS, but doesn't check for Linux Mint specifically.
My /etc/lsb-release file looks like this now, so that I can comment/uncomment as needed. In this case, you'd want to comment out Linux Mint, and uncomment Ubuntu. Set it back to normal when you're done.
Hope this helps!
$ cat /etc/lsb-release
