Hi Brandt,
I am bit puzzled; Mint is based on Debian which ships brltty-6.3 for 
and as backport for buster according to:

So I am puzzled: which Mint version do you use?

I would suggest to use a Debian package, but don't know which would be
compatible with you Mint version.

You could also build from source but indeed then the software would not be
handled by the package management system of Mint.

Or, but only if everything else fails, re-install Slint ;)

By the way we will provide brltty-6.4 for Slint as soon as released (but 
will do that too for Debian, I presume).
