Linux Mint is a Ubuntu derivative, therefore you could proceed
according to the Ubuntu wiki:

* Deinstall all TeXLive-Packages of the distribution
* Install TeXLive manually: look
at the commands under the heading "Manuell"
* Then, in order to install LyX without dependencies do:
 look at the commands under the heading "Paketverwaltung die neue TeX
Live Version mitteilen"
