Monthly News – September 2015

Written by Clem on Thursday, October 1st, 2015


We’ve a lot of news this month. Before getting started and talking about what we’ve been working on, I’d like to thank all the people who helped us. More than 300 people donate to us every month and more so than the financial support this gives us, it’s also a sign of appreciation and happiness from our users and that really boosts our confidence. We also rely on a strong network of sponsors and partners and it’s a real pleasure to work in these conditions and with that level of support. So to all of you who are involved in helping us like that, I’d like to send a very big thank you.

I’d also like to take the opportunity to relay two old pieces of news from our partners.

In August, CompuLab completed the transition to Mint 17.2. New Mintbox 2 and Mintbox Mini units now ship with Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon edition.

And in February, HELLOTUX started shipping Linux Mint sweaters.

Apologies to CompuLab and HELLOTUX for covering this information so late.

“Rosa”, the codename for Linux Mint 17.3 was recently announced, and many new features were implemented in preparation for its release.

On top of the improvements which were mentioned last month, Cinnamon 2.8 will introduce a visual workspace switcher applet and a better sound applet:

MATE 1.12 received a lot of attention and will feature the following changes:

  • Better touchpad support (including natural scrolling, and middle-click emulation on three finger clicks)
  • Better session management (including screensaver inhibition on media playback with VLC, Totem etc..)
  • Better support for multiple monitors
  • Better display settings (using output names and a more explicit UI and letting you set the primary monitor)
  • Model/Vendor information in the power applet (so you can distinguish between multiple devices using batteries)

HiDPI support was improved for HTML themes in MDM. To take an example, on a 13″ Macbook Pro with a native resolution of 2560×1600, MDM used to blindly apply a 2x scale ratio and the login screen looked slightly too big (1280×800). It now works towards an “ideal” DPI value instead. In this case it applies a 1.3 scale ratio and the login screen ends up looking much nicer in what looks like 1969×1230.

The detection of HDMI TVs was also much improved. HiDPI would kick in by mistake on TVs which didn’t report their screen size correctly. That was fixed and some of these fixes will also be ported towards Cinnamon.

MATE and Xfce users will receive great window management improvements:

  • Better support for Compiz
  • Support for Compton and OpenBox
  • The ability to switch between various window managers

Although the Xfce edition will still use Xfwm4, it is likely to ship with Compton installed by default. On some computers, this compositing manager is known to reduce screen-tearing, and switching to it will be a breeze.

Last but not least, we worked on servers and mirrors. On the server side, was clustered and is now served by 2 separate servers. Repositories were also tuned to let apt-get know when files were last-modified. Although this is quite a small detail, it means two consecutive calls to apt-get update no longer re-download the same information (that information is tiny in size but it all adds up). We’re hoping this will improve response times and download speed on the main repository.

Linux Mint also benefits from a network of 68 repository mirrors and we’d like the OS to take advantage of that. Changes in the installer and in the Update Manager were planned and cool new improvements were added to the Software Sources tool:

  • Mirrors closer to you are now tested first (mirrors in your country first, then mirrors in neighbour countries, then mirrors in your part of the World and eventually mirrors in your continent)
  • Mirrors are tested one by one and their speed is much more meaningful than before
  • Mirrors are tested to check if they’re up-to-date and can be filtered out from the list

This was just implemented in the last few days. We’ll post more details about this soon on Segfault and we’ll probably make a package available for people to test these features before they land in Linux Mint 17.3.

Last month’s poll:

Thanks for taking part in last month’s poll. We got close to 2,000 votes and we have a better idea of what you think of Segfault. It looks like many people don’t or didn’t know about it, but that people who did were quite happy with it. In the comments sections people also asked for more articles.

We started writing more often and covering more news on the development of Linux Mint. And going forward, we’ll try to promote the Segfault blog a little bit more.

Poll of the month:

Do you play most of your games on Linux Mint?

Don’t hesitate to comment to let us know where you get your games from, where you play them, and what reasons (if any) are holding you from playing them in Linux Mint.

Also don’t hesitate to share your experience on gaming in the comments section, if you think there’s something we should do to improve things on our side, or even simply to share your experience with other users.

Linux Mint 17.3 codenamed ‘Rosa’

Written by Clem on Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

The third and last 17.x point release will be Linux Mint 17.3 codename ‘Rosa’.

Rosa is a classic vintage Italian, Spanish and Portuguese name.

The meaning of the name Rosa is: Rose. Used as a sign of love and compassion, the rose is also the symbol of England.

In 1545, Ronsard writes one of the most famous poems in France. In “Mignonne, allons voir si la rose”, youth is ephemeral, beautiful but short-lived, just like a rose.

Linux Mint 17, 17.1 and 17.2 users will have the choice to upgrade, and that upgrade will be both easy and safe.

Monthly News – August 2015

Written by Clem on Monday, August 31st, 2015


All editions for Linux Mint 17.2 were released and the team is now fully focused on development again.

Cinnamon was the first project to receive attention. Its power applet now shows vendor and model information, box pointers look better, and multi-monitor support was further improved: When switching workspaces, the workspace name now appears on all relevant monitors, output names (i.e. plug names) are shown alongside monitor names (in the screenshot below that allows us to distinguish two identical Dell monitors via the name of their display port).

Output names are also relevant when using xrandr or in the MDM configuration tool, to tell the login screen what monitor to use, and that’s another area we’ve been focusing on.

On Segfault, I explained how to manually set up the MDM login screen when using multiple monitors. In this development cycle we’ll also consider different ways to automate this configuration or to provide ways to generate it easily.

We’re also working on other things in Cinnamon and there are exciting plans for the other desktops and cross-desktop tools, but that’s not finished yet so I’ll talk about it another time :)

If you’ve been donating to us, sponsoring us or helping us in any way, thank you very very much. This is the time during the release cycle when we make the most of the freedom you’re giving us, with all the releases out, no funding or commercial aspects to worry about, all the equipment we need and a full cycle in front of us. Many thanks to you all. We’ll continue to post about new features and improvements as they get ready.

Poll of the month:

In 2013 Linux Mint created a new blog called “Segfault”, dedicated to cover technical news and stories from the development team.

Here are the reasons why it was separate from the Linux Mint blog:

  • So technical and development stories could be shared with Linux enthusiasts without getting in the way of official blog posts read by everybody
  • So developers could express themselves on a blog that was more casual and less official

95 posts later, we’d like to get your opinion on Segfault and how you think we can improve things. Don’t hesitate to vote and to comment.

What do you think of Segfault and the Linux Mint blog?
