Before we start with the news I’d like to thank all the people who send donations to us and who help our project grow. Many thanks to you all.

Linux Mint 20.3 Una

Linux Mint 20.3 was codenamed “Una”. Its stable release is planned to arrive for Christmas this year. It will come in 3 flavors: Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce.

LMDE 5 Elsie

Work is set to start on the next version of LMDE which was given the codename “Elsie”. It will be based on Debian 11, ship with a Cinnamon desktop environment and support both amd64 and i386 architectures.

New website

The new website is now fully ready and live on It looks minty, it works on all devices and it looks modern. It also does a better job than before at welcoming newcomers, explaining what Linux Mint is, why people love it and how to install it.

It took longer than expected but the job is done and we’re glad we took the time to finally do it. I’d like to thank all the people who sent us feedback and who helped us with it.

The website no longer shows ads and this blog announcement is no longer showing the community sponsors. These were tough decisions to take because they immediately reduce our income but they also make Linux Mint look more serious and professional. We’re hopeful they’ll help us grow in the long term and we’ll generate enough to not worry about it.

We received a lot of positive feedback since the website went live so we know you really like it! I know we can’t please everybody and taste is subjective but for most people this is a very welcome change. Personally I remember how amazing the previous website looked when it was made in 2009, but what looked amazing then just simply looks outdated now. Although I grew attached to it since it represented part of our identity during these many years, getting the opportunity to redesign it during this development cycle was a relief and I’m very happy with the result. We are a modern operating system. We use Linux because it’s better, not because it’s free or because it’s old or because it didn’t embrace controversial design changes. We use it because it’s fast, because it works, because it does what we want. It was important for our website to not only convey these ideas but to look modern as well.


With the website finished, the artwork is given full priority at the moment. This is also an area we often neglect when working on development and focusing on bugs and new features. Although the introduction of Mint-Y made Linux Mint look more modern there still are many visual aspects of the distribution we want to improve.

The titlebars were too small. We want to make them rounder with bigger buttons to make the desktop look more pleasant and generous and to make it easier to press the buttons.


The current Mint-Y theme is a grey theme with many “accents”.

An “accent” is a part of the theme which uses a vibrant color (Aqua in the example above) to catch your attention and look more noticeable than the rest of the theme

Accents make the theme look nice, catchy, vibrant, fun even… especially on top of grey which can be quite austere.

That said, accents also compete for your attention and distract you from the actual content. Because they’re so prominent in Mint-Y they also prevent us from using colors which could be more vibrant. A vibrant green might look better than the one we currently ship with, but because there are so many accents in the theme, it would feel overwhelming.

To make the theme look more pleasant we’re trying to remove accents and inject a tiny bit of tint into our shades of grey.

Small widgets such as sliders, checkboxes, radios and the close button continue to provide your favorite highlight color while the rest of the theme takes a step back and looks more neutral than before.

In the current theme, selections use inverted colors. This looks nice in text entries but it can be overwhelming in lists which contain embedded widgets. Transmission for instance features a treeview of elements which use progressbars. When some elements are selected the list quickly becomes unreadable, because the highlight color is used all over the place, inverted in many places, and it just looks confusing.

We’ll keep color inversions on small widgets (text entries, maybe the sidebar) but we’ll remove them in large areas.  In a long list of items we’ll want selected items to only differ from non-selected ones via a background color, not through inverted colors.


The greys underneath are tinted just a tiny bit (2% in the screenshot below).

This brings back a bit of fun to the theme and makes it look pleasant.

At the moment we’re still working with the same colors as we used in previous releases. We do however think that tinted greys look better in some variants than others and we know the removal of some of the accents now allow us to explore colder greens and more vibrant colors.

Dark Apps

Last month we talked about supporting Dark mode in Mint-Y. Since then we cleared many compatibility issues with the various window managers we’re using and I’m happy to report we’re going ahead with that. Dark mode is the ability for certain applications to look dark without using a dark theme. In other words it makes it possible for only some applications to be dark and for the rest of the desktop to remain light.

Here’s an example with Mint-Y-Purple:

As you can see above, the theme is light yet some applications (gnome-terminal, Celluloid) are dark. We’ll use this technique in Linux Mint 20.3 to ship with a light theme but to make the following apps look dark by default:

  • Hypnotix
  • Celluloid
  • GNOME Terminal
  • Pix
  • XViewer

Note: Xfwm doesn’t support dark mode, so Pix and Xviewer will remain light in Xfce to keep full compatibility with that window manager. Hypnotix and Celluloid use GTK borders so they will support dark mode everywhere.


We’re hoping you’re excited with these visual changes and that they will be well received. We’re also aware we can’t change that many things without creating frustration for some of you, and that’s not something we like to do.

Last month you asked us to reconsider removing Mint-Y-Darker and we heard you. That already got the ball rolling on a project to keep the old theme available in the repositories.

So first of all, you will be able to make 20.3 look exactly as it did before (and that includes Mint-Y-Darker) by installing a new package called mint-themes-legacy. This will give you access to both the new themes and the old ones.

Second, dark mode is configurable in every single application we ship dark by default. So if you don’t like Hypnotix, Celluloid, Pix, Xviewer or GNOME Terminal to be dark, you’ll be able to disable that in each one of them.

New website

The new website which design was presented last month is now 75% finished. The vast majority of pages were written. Work continues on the logos, the font contrast and addressing the remaining issues.

You can follow our progress on this project at

We’ll deploy it on our server this month and transition our current website towards it.


The team is also currently focused on reviewing Linux Mint’s look and feel. Many little changes are being discussed and implemented to improve the desktop’s look.

Mint-X received styling for in-app notifications and a better looking Nemo toolbar:

Mint-Y is being streamlined to provide less complexity and work better in a variety of cases:

  • Instead of providing two separate titlebar themes (one light and one dark) it will provide just one which will dynamically adjust its colors to the selected control theme.
  • The “darker” variants which mixed dark toolbars with light windows and had poor compatibility with mono icon themes will be discontinued.
  • The Mint-Y Cinnamon theme will provide a light panel (though we’ll still ship with Mint-Y-Dark by default).
  • The theme will support dark applications.

That last point consists in letting certain applications look dark even in the light theme. In Linux Mint 20.3 we will take advantage of this to ship some of the apps in dark:

  • Celluloid
  • Xviewer
  • Pix
  • Hypnotix
  • Gnome terminal

 Each of these applications will have a setting in its preference window to disable/enable dark mode. Note that support for dark apps will work with Cinnamon, Marco (MATE’s window manager) and Metacity, but not with Xfwm (which is used by default in Xfce).

The Mint-Y icon theme received new emblems.

Titlebars are being redesigned. Ubuntu’s default titlebar is very similar to ours but with a more intuitive maximize/unmaximize icon and larger buttons. We’re bringing this in Mint-Y. The hover zone around the icon will also be larger to make it easier to click these buttons and the shadows will look more consistent between CSD and non-CSD windows. Last but not least we’re currently testing the idea of removing the circle around the close button icon in unfocused windows, to give the focused window a more distinct look and reduce the amount of highlight in the rest of the desktop.

Many other aspects are being reviewed, such as emblems, GTK4 support, color variations, the nemo sidebar, symbolic icons and desktop sound events.

Das Keyboard

We’re happy to announce that Das Keyboard is now a Linux Mint Silver Sponsor.

Das Keyboard is an American company which specializes in TKL and full-size mechanical keyboards. They provide a range of keyboards with macros, RGB lighting, double-shot ABS or PBT keycaps, aluminum top panel and cherry MX switches.

Their “smart” boards come with a unique feature. They let you configure shortcuts and events which affect the RGB lighting on your keyboard. How about making your M key blink in red when you get an email? How about your num keys illuminating themselves based on your RAM usage?

Das Keyboard even provides an API so you can create your own applets.

With a contribution of $500/month Das Keyboard actively helps our project. If you’re in the market for a new keyboard check them out!

Linux Mint 20.2 “Uma”

Linux Mint 20.2 was very well received. Over at ZDNet, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols said:

The years go by, and I keep trying one Linux desktop distro after the other. But for more than a decade now, I come back to Linux Mint. Why? It’s simple: Year in and year out, Mint remains the best, easiest-to-use Linux desktop. That’s the case again with the latest release, called Linux Mint 20.2 “Uma.”

We were delighted to see your reactions here on the blog when you started to use some of the new features. The search functions and the bulk renamer in particular proved to be very popular.

The upgrade path was opened shortly after the official release and a few weeks later the new features were ported towards LMDE 4.

We also took the opportunity to provide some of the improvements and bug fixes from Linux Mint 20.2 to 20 and 20.1 by backporting the latest version of the following packages: folder-color-switcher, gnome-online-accounts, hypnotix and youtube-dl, lightdm-settings, mint-themes, mintbackup, mintdrivers, mintinstall, mintlocale, mintreport, mintstick, mintsystem, mintupdate, mintupload, nvidia-prime-applet, warpinator and yelp.

The next development cycle is now open and the next target is Linux Mint 20.3. It is planned for Christmas 2021.

New website

When our current website was revealed it looked amazing. It did, people loved it, but that was in 2008. This was 13 years ago. The first thing people say when they see it nowadays is that it looks old and outdated. And they’re right, it is exactly that, old and outdated.

Although it was interrupted by the release of Linux Mint 20.2 work continues on a new website.

The new website will have a new look but it will also feature an adaptive layout, work well on any device, present information in a modern way and focus on what most visitors expect to find when they first browse it:

  • What is Linux Mint?
  • Why use Linux Mint?
  • How to install it?

With the stable release just behind us the timing is right and this project is given more focus.

If you’re talented in graphics design, UI/UX design, web design or even artwork in general get in touch with us. This project is hosted on github at and you can also get in touch with us directly by email at

Right now we’re working on this website but we’re also constantly looking for artists. Put bluntly we can implement pretty much anything, any website, any software application, we can make it work and work really well, but we can’t make it look nice 🙂 After this website we’ll have more websites to redesign, we’ll want our icon theme, GTK theme, titlebars and the look of the Linux Mint desktop in general to improve as well, and for this we need more artists to come and join us.
