Linux Mint prepares small tweaks to its user interface

Linux Mint prepares tweaks to the interface

As much as an operating system improves, if its image does not, we will feel that we are working on something a bit outdated. Although many Linux users care more about performance, Linux Mint It was not born thinking about that (but also), but to attract those of Windows and Ubuntu when it moved to Unity. The Ubuntu's next unofficial mint flavor release will arrive in December, and it will do so with user interface changes.

The developer team led by Clement Lefebvre is now focused on reviewing the image and Linux Mint sensations. At the moment many small changes are being discussed and added to the desktop image, such as that Mint-X has improved the notifications within the app and an improved image in the Nemo bar. Mint-Y will also improve and, among other things, support dark applications.

Linux Mint 20.3 will arrive in December with an improved dark theme

Among the things that will improve on the dark theme are the Celluloid, Xviewer, Pix, Hypnotix applications and the GNOME terminal. Each of these applications will have a new setting in your preferences to enable / disable dark mode, but at the moment it will not be available in Xfce since Xfwm does not support it. On the other hand, Mint-Y will receive new emblems, that is, icons for the different extensions.

The rest of the august note It is completed by two less important points: one already told us last month, and that is that the new website is already 75% complete. You can track progress on this link, where a list of what remains to be done is displayed, but not the web page itself. The other news is that Linux Mint has a new sponsor, Das Keyboard, a mechanical keyboard company. Regarding the operating system, last month they announced that would arrive in december.

    Just a comment ...
    Calling Mint "unofficial mint flavor of Ubuntu" seems like a lot to me ... it is not knowing that it is an independent project [including the desktop environment itself and its debian version]. Although it is based on, it does not imply being contingent. This has been demonstrated in several decisions [the topic of Snap - eliminating processes that send data to Canonical - etc]. Otherwise the unofficial mint flavor of Ubuntu is Ubuntu Cinnamon ... which does not make sense to me.

    Best regards

    It's my distro, and I like everything ... except the aesthetic taste of its creators (the default version of mint is horrible (the theme, the icons, the desktop background ...), but it can be tuned to everyone's taste and in the end In addition to having a very competent system, it is attractive.

    I do not trust that the aesthetic changes that will be implemented in the next version 20.3 will exceed my tuned version of Linux Mint 20.2, so if they do not make changes beyond the aesthetic, I will not even update to 20.3 (in order to account the 20.2 version suits me perfectly)

    It is also my distro, almost since it was born.
    Aesthetics is not its strong suit, but it is fast and complete.

    Have you had any problems migrating from 19 to 20?

    It is true that aesthetics are not its strong suit and that Linux mint was born with Kubuntu, hence it is also a very configurable gnome, some idea was taken ...

    I love this news, the theme "Y" I never quite liked it, but as I worked on it, I liked that minimalism a little more, I think there are details and improvements to be made in the aesthetic, especially in the icons according to me ... but in general it's pretty good and if I like it today, I would recommend it.

    the theme «X» I will start with its icons I think they are super beautiful almost timeless ... on the subject it is half light half half dark, I think it deserves a completely dark theme, a black / gray two-tone, in nemo it would be very good I think ... apart from the classic theme that is white with gray in the bars, a dark «x» theme would be especially appreciated at night ... since the «Y» theme is the only one that has a completely dark theme ...

    Anyway, thank you very much for having translated the news from the blog, my English is worse than the translator's haha… greetings
