  • The Much Awaited Linux Mint 21 is Released and Available to Download - It's FOSS News

    Linux Mint is one of the most popular Linux distros out there. Moreover, it uses Ubuntu as its base and particularly the Long Term Support releases for up to 5 years of software support.

    Now, we have a new version upgrade, i.e. Linux Mint 21 “Vanessa” based on the latest Ubuntu 22.04 LTS release, which was released in April. Thus, users can expect security updates until 2027.

    Let’s take a look at the highlights of this release.

Ubuntu-based Linux Mint 21

  • Ubuntu-based Linux Mint 21 'Vanessa' now available for download

    Just yesterday, we told you 4MLinux 40 was available for download. We also stated 4MLinux was an operating system that simply didn't need to exist. Another such distribution that isn't necessary anymore is Linux Mint. While Mint is a very solid OS, the brutal truth is, users would be wise to just use the operating system on which it is based -- Ubuntu.

    But OK, many people have been using Linux Mint for years and they are not interested in changing their ways. Fair enough. If you are such a person that is prepared to "ride or die" with Linux Mint, today, the latest version of the operating system is officially released. Code-named "Vanessa," Linux Mint 21 can be downloaded immediately.

  • Linux Mint 21 Released, This is What's New - OMG! Ubuntu!

    The stable release of Linux Mint 21 “Vanessa” is now available to download.

    This is the latest version of the Ubuntu-based distro, and it carries a sizeable set of changes compared to the Linux Mint 20.3 release we saw at the start of the year.

    In this post I show you what’s new in Linux Mint 21, where to download it, and recap how to upgrade to Linux Mint 21 from an earlier version should you be running one.

    As ever, Linux Mint 21 is available in three distinct distillations: the flagship Cinnamon edition (which uses the Cinnamon desktop environment by default), an Xfce variant (using the Xfce desktop), and a MATE option (which ships with the MATE desktop by default). In this post I focus primarily on the Cinnamon version.

Linux Mint 21 is Now Available

  • Linux Mint 21 is Now Available

    Linux Mint 21 has arrived and it includes some interesting updates and features that will please both new and previous users alike. One big addition is the new upgrade tool that makes it even easier to upgrade to a major version with just a few clicks of a graphical tool. The new updater displays packages that have been upgraded as well as those that won’t and reports if any PPAs will no longer be supported in the new version.

    Linux Mint 21 also ships with a new Bluetooth application, Blueman, and the bluez backend. This was done for two reasons. First off Blueman is a superior application. The other reason is explained by Clement Lefèbvre (Linux Mint Lead Developer) when he said in a blog post back in March...

    Linux Mint 21 is here, with a tweaked Ubuntu 22.04 base, natively packaged Firefox, Flatpak instead of Snap, and strategically pruned systemd.

As usual, there are three different editions, each with their own release announcements: one based on Mint's flagship Cinnamon desktop, one based on the GNOME 2 fork MATE, and a slightly lighter-weight version based on Xfce.

  • Linux Mint 21 arrives. Here's what's new | ZDNet

    I've been using Linux desktops since the interface debate was between the C shell and Bash. I've used over 100 major Linux desktops. But over the past few years, time and again, Linux Mint has proven to be simply the best Linux desktop of all. And with the release of Linux Mint 21, Vanessa, I have every reason to believe it will stay at the top of my list and on my production desktops.

    However, there should be no mistake that it is solely for newcomers. I’ve been using Linux Mint for years due to its stability, timely updates, and a vast community that teaches new things about everyday.

  • How to Add Repository to Debian

    APT checks the health of all the packages, and dependencies of the package before installing it. APT fetches packages from one or more repositories. A repository (package source) is basically a network server. The term "package" refers to an individual file with a .deb extension that contains either all or part of an application. The normal installation comes with default repositories configured, but these contain only a few packages out of an ocean of free software available. In this tutorial, we learn how to add the package repository to Debian.

  • Making a Video of a Single Window

    I recently wanted to send someone a video of a program doing some interesting things in a single X11 window. Recording the whole desktop is easy (some readers may remember my post on Aeschylus which does just that) but it will include irrelevant (and possibly unwanted) parts of the screen, leading to unnecessarily large files. I couldn't immediately find a tool which did what I wanted on OpenBSD [1] but through a combination of xwininfo, FFmpeg, and hk I was able to put together exactly what I needed in short order. Even better, I was able to easily post-process the video to shrink its file size, speed it up, and contort it to the dimension requirements of various platforms. Here's a video straight out of the little script I put together: [...]

The control code 17 was chosen to tell the remote host to resume transmission of data.
