I've many PC already uses Mint KDE 14. How can I sync installed packages between these PCs?

P.S. Ubuntu Software Center already has this feature but it's not working under Mint.

If you have one machine downloading and installing the packages, you could use rsync or some other utility to copy them to your other ones (provided they're on the network). apt-get looks for the downloaded packages in /var/cache/apt/archives so that's where you'd copy them from and to. Then when you run 'apt-get dist-upgrade' it won't have to download the files from any remote server again.

Or configure the other machines to use your "host" machine as a repository.

See Google search results: mint set up local repo
