Linux Mint 19.1 named ‘Tessa’

Linux Mint is a rather great operating system. The distribution is based on the fabulous Ubuntu, so it is very stable and has plenty of compatible packages. Not to mention, the Mint developers focus heavily on the user experience. Linux Mint isn’t just designed for Linux experts (although they can totally use it), but beginners too — it is easy to start using straight away. The developers have a long history of using female names as the code name for each version of the operating system. For instance, in the past, they have used “Tara,” “Sylvia,” and “Sonya,” to name… [Continue Reading]

Linux Mint developers planning big Cinnamon 4.0 improvements

Linux Mint is one of the most popular Linux-based desktop operating systems for a reason — it’s really good. By leveraging the excellent Ubuntu for its base, and offering a top-notch user experience, success is pretty much a guarantee. While the distribution primarily focuses on two desktop environments — Mate and Cinnamon — the latter is really the star of the show. Cinnamon is great because it uses a classic WIMP interface that users love, while also feeling modern. With Cinnamon 3.8, the Linux Mint Team focused on improving the DE’s performance, and today, the team shares that it is… [Continue Reading]

Cinnamon 3.8 is here, but Linux Mint users can’t have it

Linux Mint is a pretty good Linux distribution. Many people love it because of the Cinnamon desktop environment. Hell, despite having other DE versions — such as Mate — the Linux Mint operating system sort of exists only because of Cinnamon. I mean, look — Mint is based on Ubuntu, so if you want to use Mate or Xfce environments, for instance, why not just run Ubuntu Mate or Xubuntu? The thing is, Cinnamon is available to any distro that wants to use it — it is not only a Linux Mint affair. Since the Mint team both maintains and… [Continue Reading]

Refreshed stable Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) 2 ‘Betsy’ ISO images now available

Linux Mint is one of the most popular Linux-based desktop operating systems. With that said, did you know there are two versions of the OS? No, I am not talking about the multiple desktop environments, such as Cinnamon, MATE, and KDE. There are actually two entirely different operating systems that share the Mint name. The normal version of Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu, while a lesser known version, LMDE, is based on Debian. Is it confusing? Absolutely. A waste of resources? Probably. But hey, that’s the state of Linux on the desktop nowadays. Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 ‘Betsy’… [Continue Reading]

Eight Things to Do After Installing Linux Mint Xfce 18.x

After you get Linux up and running on your computer, there are still a few things left to do. Here’s a short list that newcomers might find helpful.

Linux for Newcomers

Those who are new to Linux might just go to work right away after installing, or having someone else install, GNU/Linux. However, there are a few things you should do first. Some of them, such as updating your system and activating the firewall, are essential. Others are just things you do to customize your Linux experience.
Here’s a short checklist of things to do after you get Linux up-and-running on your computer. You should consider the first two items on this list as being required, with all the other items being optional. The list is specific to Linux Mint 18.x Xfce Edition, so if you’re using another flavor of Linux, you’ll be better off searching for another list.

Linux Mint unveils ‘Mintbox Mini Pro’ — a diminutive desktop powered by AMD

If you are a fan of Linux-based desktop operating systems, you probably have done this before — buy a Windows PC and replace the pre-installed OS with your favorite distro. While this can be a fine practice, there are some problems with it. Of course, you may experience issues with drivers — especially Wi-Fi cards. Even worse, if you ever need support, the manufacturer might turn you away when it finds out you loaded Ubuntu, Fedora, or something else. A smart alternative is to buy a computer from a company that cares about Linux, such as System76. That company sells beautiful laptops… [Continue Reading]
