Run "aptitude" from the command line. If you've never used it before, 
it's like the CLI version of Adept or Synaptic. Press the / key to 
search, search for miro and press enter. select miro and push + to 
select it for installation. Then press "g" and "g" again to run it and 
report back what it says. If it gives you a red error or dependency 
problem screen, DO NOT just accept what it gives you, come back here and 
post the message first.
