Linux Mint — Release Information  

LMI will no longer be updated (August 2018).

Here are the minimum hardware system requirements (minreq, sysreq, hw req) for currently supported Linux Mint editions.
These are the End-of-Life (EOL / supported until) dates and main components comprising the currently supported Linux Mint releases.
This is a timeline of currently supported and possible future Linux Mint releases.
(Hover mouse over a release to see tooltip when Line Under Mouse is unchecked.)
Please note: Any timeframes and statements reported here are unofficial, speculative and estimated. Linux Mint releases when ready. Also, even if an item is footnoted, plans could change; it happens in computer projects and life all the time. :)
This roadmap comes directly from the Linux Mint Roadmap. However, it is formatted for HTML instead of using simple preformatted text.
In other words, same text, but a lot easier to read. Here is a link to all the roadmap files.

Release Stages Explained

These stages are unofficial. Some dates, e.g., future release dates and LMDE End-of-Life dates, are speculative.

1   Theoretical: We can speculate what versions will come out and when.

2   Anticipated: These are in planning. We can assume that features that do not make it into the current version might be in the next version.

3   Alpha: These are actively being developed (released when ready).

4   Beta Imminent: This stage begins when the LM Community Site indicates the ISO is Approved for BETA release and usually lasts 2–3 days. This allows for any last minute changes and allows the servers around the world to synchronize.

5   Beta: The Beta stage usually lasts 2–3 weeks. Community testing occurs, and intense bug fixing ensues.

6   Release Imminent: This stage begins when the LM Community Site indicates the ISO is Approved for Stable release and usually lasts 2–3 days. This allows for any last minute changes and allows the servers around the world to synchronize.

7   Released: This stage represents 4.5 years out of the five year support period (five years for security updates including two years for program updates).

8   Debian Long Term Support: Debian LTS [85] Debian Long Term Support continues two years after the regular three years of support from the Debian Security Team. This stage represents the first 1.5 years of this two year LTS. This time is added to LMDE entries since LMDE is based on and compatible with Debian. Decisions from Linux Mint may be independent of any plans from Debian and Debian LTS.

9   Pre-End-of-Life: This is a five month, arbitrary-length period in which you should consider upgrading to a new Linux Mint version.

10   End-of-Life Imminent: This is a one month, arbitrary-length period in which you should consider upgrading to a new Linux Mint version.

11   End-of-Life: At this point, security updates are no longer provided. You probably should upgrade immediately or disconnect from the Internet (unless you are an advanced user who knows how to apply security updates manually). Otherwise you are taking a small chance.
On or prior to July 31, 2018, LMDE 2 was removed from the “Linux Mint Releases” page, so this site can only assume that it is at EOL. [197] Linux Mint Releases
LM 1–17.3 are included in this group of EOL releases. Of these, only LM 13 and 17.x are shown in the graph.

Non-blocking bugs

release upgrade tool

  • - migrate to pkexec
  • - make sure timeshift config is in place
  • - make sure mdm isn't in use anymore
  • - suggestions
  • - Re-enable 3rd party repositories after upgrade. A backup of the APT sources gets stored in ./Upgrade-Backup/APT but the tutorial didn't cover this or what to do with it (probably best to just find what the 3rd party repositories were and re-enable them manually from instructions on their website). Important for things like Google Chrome.
  • - mintupgrade replaces user modified configuration files in /etc without prompting, leaving .dpkg-old files behind. Perhaps cover this tidbit in the tutorial.

artwork

  • - MyPaint and Pinta have the same icon
  • - Firefox bookmarks don’t use the folder color picked in the Cinnamon theme setting.
  • - remove humanity-icon-theme and ubuntu-mono
  • - mintwelcome icon
  • - grey-on-grey icons (many in cinnamon-settings)
  • - mint-y-icons: yellow and teal folders missing.
  • - cinnamon: The progress indicator in the panel should be the same color as the chosen theme. Not just green.
  • - cinnamon themes hardcode the font

cinnamon

  • - removing favorites isn't intuitive, there should be a context menu option
  • - Application switcher items are not properly selected https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/7623
  • - NFS mount not visible in Nemo left menu. How to reproduce: install nfs-common, mount NFS folder.
  • - Even after authorize Samba in gufw, Nemo doesn’t show the local network and machine on it. I must manually type smb://user@ip to get in (after workgroup and password) In Mint 18 that was directly available.
  • - ccc: in color plugin, add a profile, browse it and click "View details". If gnome-color-manager is not installed, the plugin should ask packagekit (over dbus) to install it. This doesn't work.
  • - If the screen is rotated, then the touch screen digitiser and trackpad both move the cursor in a direction mirrored to what is expected ie move your finger to the left on the screen and the cursor moves to the right. This works properly in Gnome.
  • - When in tablet mode (that is, the screen is rotated and covering the keyboard) the RotateWindows key doesn't work anymore... It just does nothing...
  • - menu-editor: picking a pixmap in /usr/share/pixmaps for a category results in no icon being shown in the menu.
  • - Unable to unlock the screensaver via LDAP with libpam-ldap and nscd packages installed pointing to an openldap server.
  • - csd power: https://github.com/GNOME/gnome-settings-daemon/commit/82af1816f32a26f28027ea7ce8edc79cd833bc76

- gist-paste still used in xapps/mintsystem

- slick greeter: On a VirtualBox setup with three users, if any user but the first is auto given focus, the username is present but the box only has half height, cut off with no password entry lower half. You can type where that password entry half of the box would be , and it works, but the characters don't show, so it's a visual display problem, only apparently happening on boot.

- Gnome calendar does not have an icon on the top left in the new Gnome decorations, only a cog icon is shown.

LMDE 3

- lightdm asks username to be typed

backports

  • - flatpak/ostree/appstream?
  • - meson/debhelper/dh_autoreconf?

Roadmap

  • desktop-search
    • local files
    • web engines
    • recent
    • apps
    • dictionary
    • translations
    •  
  • mate
    • switch mozo for menulibre
    •  
  • mintreport
    • dmesg errors
    • foreign packages if pinned by mint
    • wrong lsb info..etc.
    • slow boot sequence
    • slow shutdown sequence
    •  
  • implement an alarm clock
  •  
  • cinnamon
    • CSD/Cinnamon should set GtkSettings' gtk-print-preview-command to "xreader-previewer -u -p %s %f" (test by launching xreader from terminal, ask for a print preview and see error trying to launch evince on stdout)
    • cinnamon slow to start after boot --> delay execution of appsys/docinfo until the DE is loaded
    • CSD: support mouse wheel speed? Evdev scrolling distance?
    • menu keywords: looking for display in menu shows color first
    • preferences > keyboard > custom shortcuts. Used with a Spanish keyboard layout. Recorded: crtl+number and ctrl+Shift+number (e.g. ctrl+1 and ctrl+shift+1 = ctrl+!) they are recorded correctly. When using the shortcut the command defined in the shift combination is triggered with just ctrl+number (i.e. ctrl+1). The complete combination triggers nothing (i.e. ctrl+shift+1 does nothing) and the comand defined in ctrl+number can never be used. This worked in 17.3.
    • track/troubleshoot shutdown sequence (user should know what is happening when shutdown isn't immediate)
    • track/troubleshoot vsync, compositing, unredirected windows and policy
    • menu: consider adopting this layout (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/The-Panacea-Projects/Gnomenu/master/Screenshot.png), same as ours/mintmenu, only better.
    • todo list applet/desklet
    • calendar events applet/desklet
    • multiple clocks https://github.com/simonwiles/cinnamon_applets
    • network applet: airplane mode (quick way to rfkill all)
    • nemo: retire computer:/// place (which is completely useless) or revamp it into something better
    • alt-tab and panel use icon provided by appsys, ignoring icon set by the application itself (example: a python window using widow.set_icon_name())
    • actions in panel launchers aren't translated if not present in .desktop file
    • gnome-system-monitor moves out of place in Expo
    • When using Cinnamon bar at top, and secondary monitor with higher height than the main display, some apps like KDE Apps (Krita, Kdenlive) or Wine Based Apps (teamviewer) will display menus from toolbar in the wrong place. Being more specific: The menus will be displayed in the position that they should be displayed at main monitor, however in this case the window is maximized in the secondary monitor.
    • Is there any reason why there are two names for the same item, eg. "Trash" and "Rubbish Bin"? Would it be better to standardise on only one name?
    • add gnome-screenshot to panel, right-click and select "Take screenshot of a selected area". This runs gnome-screenshot -a.. it should work but it doesn't. Is it because of the panel launcher capturing the click event or something?
    •  
  • make the GOA frontend an Xapp (it should be cross-DE), disable buggy/irrelevant services
  •  
  • xapps
    • implement an app-sharing protocol to quickly move a document from one app to another
    •  
    • gestures support

Cinnamon Edition

MATE Edition

Xfce Edition

Triaged reports

Not a bug

- The quick filter is missing in synaptic -> install apt-xapian-index to add it. This is left out by default as it is known to slow down the OS for some people (https://bugs.launchpad.net/apt/+bug/363695, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-xapian-index/+bug/655831)

- mintdrivers: The text in “Authenticate” window that comes up when i click on Driver Manager is not fully translated. I’m using it with PT-BR language. The only thing that is translated is the bold text that appears above the explanation text. Buttons, window title, explanation text and “Password” are not. -> missing language packs, use mintlocale to add them.

- update manager toolbar is too big

- Installing in VirtualBox give error “Running in software rendering mode” -> there's no acceleration by default in virtualbox, this is Cinnamon warning the user about this.

- xfce: can’t see the share remote desktop. I went to menu/preferences but then no desktop sharing was there.

- slick doesn't have a flashing cursor in its entry box, giving the impression that the entry isn't focused.

- mint-y-dark (and dark variants of light themes): xed right margin is barely visible, current line highlighting is grey on top of grey. -> this isn't part of the GTK theme, it's part of the selected Xed style scheme.

- Booted from the LM19 live CD (linuxmint-19-mate-32bit-beta.iso), installed smplayer (%sudo apt-get install --install-recommends smplayer).

      • Marco: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos correctly.
      • Marco Compositing: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos as described previously.
      • Marco Compton: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos as described previously.
      • Metacity: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos correctly.
      • Metacity Compositing: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos as described previously.
      • Metacity Compton: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos as described previously.
      • Compiz: smplayer displays .flv and .mp4 videos correctly.
      • AOpen MX4SG-4DN motherboard, Intel 865G Graphics Memory Controller Hub.
      • xplayer segfaults in all cases above ^^
      • --> could be caused by the clutter-gst backend. A stack trace would be needed to idenfity a bug here.

Outside of the scope

- i can not read video like mpeg or mp4 (with ubuntu mate 18.04 live or xubuntu 18.04 live, i can, now mp3 and mp4 codec is public domain) -> if it's libav we're talking about, there is still are grey areas when it comes to patents. It's ok for small distros to take that risk. We should be more careful than them though. We also made the codecs installation really easy, so other than the live use case, this isn't an urgent issue.

- xfce: After installing Opera Browser, on first opening after login, I keep getting the message “The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer”. Then it asks for my password (solution is to autostart gnome-keyring-daemon -r)

- Using a live boot session in VirtualBox no longer allows copy-and-paste between the host and the Linux Mint live boot session, and resizing the VirtualBox window for that session does not resize Linux Mint within that session. -> virtualbox guest additions (from Oracle) need to be installed

- Cinnamon setting to disable the touch pad while typing does not work, which makes typing on the laptop pretty annoying. -> provided for synaptics driver.

- mintinstall (live mode): Software Manager-Games-All only shows 0Ad-Edgar i.e. it does not show the games beginning with later letters E-Z that can be found through the more detailed searches, e.g. Software Manager-Games-Simulation and Racing-Torcs --> appstream can't work in live mode, the cache isn't full and mintinstall probably doesn't know about the score of each app. Only 200 apps are shown, usually by order of popularity, but here since it's not possible, by alphabetical order.

- mintinstall: does only wait and not warn if synaptic is open.

- In the file-manager the number of emblems has been reduced. It takes some effort to create extra ones. It would be great to have an application that automates this process (Else you have to use gimp and put the result with the right name in the proper folder).

- panel date and time item is set as bitstream vera fonts, but bitstream vera fonts not installed

- MATE screen goes blank during the install despite all screensaver/power management being turned OFF. Post-install, with everything OFF again, screensaver/power management are disabled properly. -> mate-screensaver is killed by ubiquity to ensure the screen doesn't get locked.

Can't reproduce

- remove ureadahead? faster boot? -> empirical?

- USB doesn't boot in BIOS mode

- When installing to internal 16GB SSD and with option “Something else” using the whole SSD for mountpoint root, installation always hangs in both XFCE 64 and Cinnamon 64. Ubuntu 18.04 installer with same options has no problem. -> journalctl info not provided

cinnamon

  • - backgrounds: On the left pane, you can’t select “Pictures” folder by clicking, you need to use the keyboard – Down key..
  • - cinnamon: I disabled the option to block the screen in every case. This works when the screensaver is activated automatically by time. But when I close the lid, It blocks the screen and asks the password when I open.
  • - menu-editor: when adding new Menu items to the Menu, The Icon’s won’t save.
  • - After log-out & log-in back, the update manager icon stays there but nothing happens when you left or right click on it..
  • - On Vivaldi when I full screen a youtube video, the dashboard always remains displayed. Same on Firefox.
  • - power: No way to set brightness for battery VS AC power.
  • - Can't delete a user. Delete button doesn't delete.
  • - Effects "Unmaximize Window" behavior does not change with change in settings regardless of effect type or time setting.
  • - After the updates last night I am no longer able to drag maximized windows bu the title bar in Cinnamon. To clarify the drag of maximized windows, Firefox and Nemo will not drag when maximized, Thunderbird will drag when maximized
  • - steam has to be exited twice from systray
  • - Using Vivaldi (1.15.1147.42 (Stable channel) (64-bit)) I downloaded a picture (jpg) from Facebook to my desktop. The download created a file (filename).jpg.crdownload. Once the picture was downloaded completely this file remained on my desktop. I can select it and check its properties, but I cannot delete it. I get an error message saying that the object does not exist. -> could be inotify not working?

- xplayer: In some videos with subtitles, Xplayer does not show them, even if I select them in the menu. It happened to me in a .mkv file, but I do not know if it happens in other types of files. In these cases, I use VLC.

- xplayer: In fullscreen mode, it starts misbehaving after a while. Video freezes/goes black, sound is still there. Keyboard is lost. Mouse pointer moves, but no action can be taken. Reset button on box only option.

- mint-x: no icon when the update manager cannot connect to the server

- auto-login from installer doesn't work?

- can't access Google login page from GOA

- When trying to start xed as root it takes approx. 20 seconds for the xed window to display while displays it at once.

- can’t add any PPA (Xfce)

- No pressure sensitivity in Krita. Ugee 2150 graphics display pen not seen as mouse -> probably down to synaptics missing, user didn't confirm.

- can't install google chrome

- appimage: When I download Molotov.Appimage and try to launch the file it fails. The same installation with Mint Cinnamon version 18.3 runs perfectly on my both laptops. -> chmod the file, and run it.. works perfectly.

- Anydesk. Shortcut saved connection on desktop will not launch. Gives ' There was an error launching the application'. From within anydesk it starts normal.

- In the default theme, approximately one pixel of the taskbar near the edge of the screen cannot properly select and switch the task list.

- Mint-Y showing incorrect icons in check-boxes. Example: Nemo Preferences, select "Show advanced permissions in the file property dialogue". Now view the properties of a directory containing files. Initially, the file permissions will show [-] (correct). But clicking to change permissions results in [ ] -> [🗸] -> [🗸] (blank, check, check). The dash never shows up again leading one to think they enabled the permission, which they didn't.

- not possible to turn bluetooth OFF completely -> systray in blueberry can be disabled. device rfkill state is handled by systemd

- First time Timeshift was used the Warning and Disclaimer text sections appeared blank (image link), next use the fields were populated. http://pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=61509d64959391182648fdff247804e6

- NTFS pen drive is not mounting

- Custom actions created with Caja Actions are not appearing in Caja's context menu, whereas they did in Mint 18.3. Is there some reason this might be occurring? -> just needs caja to be restarted

mate

  • - Windows Manager Metacity+Compton puts red line around app window

Upstream

- clementine: mint-y, huge icons -> applications-internet and media-optical look OK in the theme, provided in all sizes. They're PNG as opposed to SVG for action icons, but that shouldn't matter.

mate

  • - Sticky Notes double click doesnt highlight https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-applets/issues/260
  • - preferred apps: caja, orca aren't selected

cinnamon

  • - The dropbox icon in the bottom right bar is too small. -> for dropbox to fix
  • - The Telegram icon in the bottom right bar is too small. -> for telegram to fix

ubuntu

  • - wine doesn't work
  • - wifi dongle rtl8192eu is not being recognized, but the generic rtl8xxxu-driver is being loaded instead yielding a 1mbs connection speed
  • - Despite installing open-vm-tools-desktop window resizing does not work
  • - gnome-terminal: Just installed it with Hebrew as the system language and there’s something really weird with the fonts on the terminal. https://imgur.com/a/OHjoBu8
  • - When using RTL language (in this case Hebrew) in the right click menu on the window header the icons and check boxes go over the text. https://imgur.com/a/fISEJJA
  • - there is no country named Czechia. Adding another language keyboard layout, selecting COUNTRY, i found name Czechia in the list.
  • - During installation, having selected "Something else", I chose my root partition and changed it to ext4; format; /. Once finished, a window entitled "Write previous changes to disk and continue?" appeared with the text "Before you can select a new partition size...". At no point did I select a new partition size. Hitting "Go Back" got rid of the message and a look at the list of partitions showed that the new info for that root partition was good, so that "new partition size" window appears both incorrect and unnecessary in that situation. I've experienced this twice during two installations.
  • - xed admin:///etc/fstab asks for password twice -> happens with gedit as well, must be an issue with admin:// or pkexec.
  • - screen reader reads too fast
  • - systemd-udev cause high cpu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udev/+bug/1767968?comments=all
  • - Shutdown takes forever: “A stop job is running for Cryptography Setup for cryptoswap1” takes over 5 minutes
  • - Boot hangs 1 minute with “gave up waiting for suspend/resume device”, there seems to be a wrong uuid for resume in initramfs. Temporarily solution is here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1013830/slow-boot-long-kernel-load-time-due-to-wrong-resume-device https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/initramfs-tools/+bug/1768230

xfce

  • - system-load-plugin: The switch that enables clicking on the system load monitor to open the task manager is greyed out and in the off position whether or it is turned on or off.
  • - quicklauncher plugin: The properties window is in French.
  • - clock plugin: empty clock in panel after editing preferences.

Improvements selected for the future

  • internet/network
    • remove modemmanager?
    •  
  • mintupdate
    • creates objects with wrong ownership. See https://github.com/linuxmint/mintupdate/issues/169
    •  
  • mintupload
    • ftps support

Cinnamon

  • hidpi and display settings
    • System Settings > Display won’t let me set the one on the right as primary. The “Set as Primary” button is grayed. It’s connected as DVI. The other monitor’s “Set as Primary” is not grayed. It’s connected as VGA. This is related to a very longstanding issue of Mint always opening dialogs on the left (wrong) monitor
    •  
  • networking
    • Network setting does not let me to set Proxy.. The button “set system wide” is not there.
    • network applet https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-control-center/commit/panels/network?id=63756458b2de0d730763cc2acbd510659e4d00a5
    •  
  • nemo
    • Prefs > Display > Icon Caption > first option SIZE, and Prefs > Preview > Folders > options NEVER ---> results in "–" showing under directories (tested in icon view).
    • if I press ALT+F2 and then enter “nemo ftp://ftp.mydomain.xyz” to access to my personal ftp server trough nemo, I’ll get a request of username and password: it’s OK. The problem is that if I select the option to remember forever the username and password, it will not have effect: if I reboot Linux Mint, the next time I’ll try to access my ftp trough nemo I’ll get the request of username e password. So… nemo doesn’t remember my credentials… it’s frustrating.
    • Entering the folder of long name , the path disappeared screen capture 1) it shows a folder of longname https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/54450962/%EC%8A%A4%ED%81%AC%EB%A6%B0%EC%83%B7%2C%202013-11-18%2002%3A18%3A19.png screen capture 2) entering the long name folder , meeting disappeared folder path of long name folder https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/54450962/%EC%8A%A4%ED%81%AC%EB%A6%B0%EC%83%B7%2C%202013-11-18%2002%3A18%3A34.png screen capture 3) But Actually It was still dsiplayed at max window https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/54450962/%EC%8A%A4%ED%81%AC%EB%A6%B0%EC%83%B7%2C%202013-11-18%2002%3A19%3A13.png
    • Create a thumbnailer in usr/share/thumbnailers for MimeType inode/directory – when you try to run Nemo, it crashes with the error: (nemo:9078): CinnamonDesktop-WARNING **: Error reading from file:///home/simon/Desktop: Error reading from file descriptor: Is a directory Installing cover-thumbnailer is an easy way to reproduce it.
    • nemo-preview (not installed by default), doesn’t work: http://pastebin.com/Uaci0mzC
    • 1. Open nemo (unminimised) 2. Copy some files so that the transfer window is present 3. Open another program (unminimised) and in front of nemo such as firefox 4. If the transfer window is open (maximised) in front of the other program (firefox for example) and you click to minimise the transfer window, nemo will automatically pop up in front of the other program. Not a major bug but annoying from a window management point of view.
    • When trying to connect my ext.hard drive via smb when double clicking on the globe icon (workgroup) nemo closes down
    • If I disable the desktop icons with the first checkbox in cinnamon-settings the right mousebutton does not work on the desktop anymore…
    • right-click Run/Open with blah in nemo, on executable files
    • Feature request: if I create a launcher on my desktop, I can select an icon for it (with preview)… instead, if a modify a launcher in the menu with the “menu editor”, I can select a different icon but without preview. Can you please add the preview feature?
    • if I launch from a bash script nemo to open an ftp server more than one time, with a command such as “nemo ftp://ftp.xxx.xyz“, I can get a duplicate icon on my desktop, see screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/573922/Schermata%20del%202013-11-21%2012%3A25%3A31.png
    • If you plug in a USB, it auto mounts in a location on the desktop but if you unplug it, plug in another, and re-insert the first, the desktop icons overlap each other. I've noticed a similar issue in previous Mint releases. It would be great if the icons could auto position.
    • small bug in all Linux Mint Cinnamon editions (maybe with Nemo). When I drag and drop some file(s) on an archive , my expectation is the files being added to it , but instead of that an error message pops out : “An error occurred while adding files to the archive. You can’t add an archive to itself.” . The Mate edition does not have this problem
    • when no panels are present -> right-click the desktop -> Add a panel
    • If Nemo is open with 2 folder-panes the user can switch between both panes with F6, that is fine, if one uses the file-manager with keyboard only. The problem is, that F6 only works at once, if you have set Nemo to open with 2 panes. If Nemo opens with 1 pane (default setting) and the second pane gets opened via F3 (or menu), pressing F6 does at first nothing – no reaction at all. You can either click the second pane with the mouse (what is against a keyboard-only usage) or you have to navigate in the first pane anywhere (e.g. by pressing backspace), only after that F6 is reacting
    • nemo: can no longer handle desktop in root session.
    •  
  • window management
    • expo: set overview mode to true by default
    • integrate workspace management in nemo, panel, window-list, applet, muffin, settings
    • Add common tiling options to window list context menu - Show Windows Side by Side, Cascade, Show windows stacked
    •  
  • settings
    • Problem with the width of some configuration windows: E. G. with the configuration window for window list applet.
    • cinnamon-settings: The search box in System Settings displays “Search…” next to the magnifier.
    • spices: removing extensions, themes, desklets, applets is only possible using right click (maybe it would be better to have button for that in future relases)
    • spices: If I select the radio box to choose an applet and then I’ll click the button to install it, the applet is installed but it’s not active: maybe a new user expects to have it immediately in the panel after the download… in fact forcing the user to come back in the list of the installed applet to enable the just downloaded applet is not user friendly, in my opinion.
    • keyboard: allow adding duplicate key combination for Cinnamon “Toggle Scale” and “Toggle Expo” (found these, didn’t go through all actions, most of them ok)
    • mouse/touchpad: an option to change the mouse scroll speed for the middle wheel in Mouse and Touchpad preferences
    • cinnamon-settings-users: Creating a user without password (stupid but nothing prevents it): impossible for that user to set one himself in Account Details.
    • cinnamon-settings-users: In the “Users and Groups”, when on “Groups” tab, it could be great to have a way to see the members of a selected group and add new members to the group as well. Currently, we can only edit the group name…
    • backgrounds: get more brackgrounds (find a way to make it easy to install more backgrounds)
    • Is the speed (not acceleration) of the mouse pointer finally changable via the settings? This did not work for years now
    •  
  • applets
    • menu: bring back category hover delay option
    • menu: doesn't listen to menu changes outside /usr/share/applications? install shotwell for instance (uses /usr/share/menu)
    • menu: keywords (for searching) aren't l10n'd
    • menu: Even after setting org.cinnamon.desktop.lockdown.disable-lock-screen to true, the lock button still appears on cinnamon menu applet...
    • menu: When creating a new menu item the icon does not appear. It is ok in the menu editor.
    • menu: recent icon is different than in nemo sidebar
    • sound: I have a problem when i start Spotify from the sound icon Cinnamon crash. When i open it in the menu it works. I didnt have that problem with Mint 18.0
    • sound: align close/raise buttons to the right
    • show-desktop: add the ability to DND to desktop by hovering with a file on the applet.
    •  
  • screensaver
    • If the display for the time gets disabled, also the absence message does not get shown. I think, both should be independent from each other.
    •  
  • other
    • screenshot filenames aren't handy (Screenshot from 2014-02-17 14:46:32.png)

MATE

  • hard to resize window or to grab border
  • When panel is at the top, notifications show on top of it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/54450962/%ED%99%94%EB%A9%B4-5.png
  • Add sound effects like in Cinnamon
  • The MATE user admin program (mate-users-admin), when setting a user’s type to “Administrative”, does not add the user to the “sudo” group. The workaround is to explicitly add the user to the sudo group
  • ‘mate-screensaver’ still as flaky as it was in lm15 MATE 64-bit. Set to ‘Lock screen when screensaver is active’ sometimes upon resume after suspend I get a prompt for my password, other times NOT.
  • MPRIS support
  • caja: If you set a black wallpaper, the text below desktop icons becomes unvisible after reboot or logout and login.
  • caja: dng and raw images thumbnails in caja
  • caja: renaming a file produces a black border
  • add context menu support for CSD headerbars in Marco.
  • make MATE screensaver see OnlyShowIn=GNOME xscreensavers (/usr/share/applications/screensavers/*)

LMDE

  • add the ability to encrypt the home directory
  • Localization of the installer slideshow
  • Live media isn't ejected at live session shutdown
  • compiz integration missing
  • caja: it looks like caja briefly dies at session start just before reappearing again
  • missing plymouth-text theme
  • Marco doesn't provide WM context menu options for CSD apps
  • iphones can't be mounted (need more info on how to pull this off and with which versions of iOS?)
  • Set the default debian repository to http.debian.net/debian instead of ftp.us.debian.org, which results in better performance for all users outside of the US
  • missing slovak language pack (something like thunderbird-l10n-sk) for Thunderbird mail client
  • rfkill provides upstart config, but not init.d.. as a result RFKILL state isn't stored/restored
  • integrity check warns about malformed header
  • /.config/pulse present (found on MATE i386 ISO)
  • gnome-power-statistics.desktop doesn't show up in Cinnamon
  • bashrc: # colored GCC warnings and errors --> export GCC_COLORS='error=01;31:warning=01;35:note=01;36:caret=01;32:locus=01:quote=01' (won't work until gcc 4.9)
  • history and completion in bashrc
  • consider activating http://backports.debian.org/changes/jessie-backports.html

  • - video and subtitle icons are too similar
  • - .deb icon
  • - filesystem icon looks like an ipod (in thunar, when small enough)
  • - with adwaita, missing icons for Settings/Seting Language, Accessories/USB Format, Accessories/USB Write Image

- ubiquity: click rel notes, nothing happens

- The fortune command says 'no fortunes found' -> leftover, fortune is now removed.

- gdebi doesn't install packages unless it's run from the terminal

- ia32-libs: depends on libesd0:i386 which is gone

- libreoffice-base can't open databases

- mint-common: uninstalling flatpak from menu doesn't work (tried with VLC)

- ms ttf fonts says it is installed but when i go to fonts to use arial black there are no fonts i fixed this by uninstalling from software manager reboot and reinstalling them then reboot then it works i like my arial black and 1 of the few reasons i use lm verses all other distros -> made it a manual install

- intel-microcode is missing https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-drivers-common/+bug/1758689

- remove vino (upstream made vino useless outside of GNOME)

- GTK file chooser: org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser sort-directories-first should be true

- xreader crash when opening certain documents

- mintinstall: launch button should be highlighted blue or green.

- spotify depends on libcurl3

- blueberry won't launch in VM: "bt-adapter -i" hangs and then segfaults

- Bash completion doesn't work with all apt commands https://github.com/linuxmint/mintsystem/issues/73

- xplayer: 'Fit Window to Movie' does not work.

- machine will not hibernate, (either from the power button (the hibernate option is selected) or from the exit menu) the screen blanks for a couple of seconds then returns to the session) -> pm-hibernate fails, that's upstream. We were forcing the hibernation option to be present though, and that was fixed.

mintupdate

  • - I choosed the new «Auto-upgrade», but it did not start until I made /etc/cron.daily/mintupdate executable.
  • - On first time use, the preferences section “jumps” on the screen.
  • - mint-update-pkgcache errors are reported after 60s timeout
  • - conflicts with VM guest pkgs... installing them removes mintupdate (and mintwelcome)
  • - refreshing the mintinstall cache slows down checkAPT
  • - https://github.com/linuxmint/mintupdate/issues/362

mintbackup

  • - restore packages with buggy names -> error, instead of ignoring buggy names
  • - restore a package list, Uncheck some packages, Apply. Expected : only selected packages are installed. Observed : all packages are installed, including unchecked ones

login screen

  • - text cursor doesn't appear
  • - doesn't notify that caps lock is active

mime

  • - Error in file "/usr/share/applications/org.gnome.font-viewer.desktop": "font/ttf" is an invalid MIME type ("font" is an unregistered media type)
  • - Error in file "/usr/share/applications/org.gnome.font-viewer.desktop": "font/otf" is an invalid MIME type ("font" is an unregistered media type

timeshift

  • - /swapfile should be excluded
  • - wizard, the tooltip incorrectly states "Create snapshots using RSYNC" when you hover over BTRFS?
  • - Users tab, the headings for the radio buttons are named "Exclude Apps", "Include Hidden Items" and (once again) "Exclude Apps".

Cinnamon Edition

- When I edit an application in “Startup Applications”, and it has a delay, the seconds unit “s” disappears.

- cinnamon settings startup, edit item with no delay, save -> python exception

- cinnamon fallback -> muffin_no_shadows=1

- skype systray duplicated: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/7588

- cmenu: doesn't show some newly installed apps (slack-desktop, ppa:4kvideodownloader, pysolfc), others show up just fine (filezilla, ppa:qbittorrent, ppa:woeusb).

- Wireless not showing in Network Manager even though it appears in Network Manager Settings.

- goa: ubuntu SSO isn't functional -> it won't work without snapd, and it's useless for anything else. Ubuntu non-gnome users auth in snapd CLI anyway, so this should be removed. We don't need it, it's not necessary and it won't work OOTB.

- desklets: I found a little bug in the Desklet “Analog Chronometer”. I can not call the settings when I have downloaded and switched on the Chronometer.

- When trying to (samba) share a folder in nemo, i have an option to install samba, but it fails to install. After installing samba from packetmanager it works.

- csd-power: https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-settings-daemon/issues/209

- With panel set to “smart hide”: if panel was never hidden since the beginning of the session, the status of mintupdate is working as expected. Once panel is hidden (by maximizing a window) the mintupdate tray icon remains static for the rest of the session.

- nm applet resets to 0%

MATE Edition

hidpi

  • - blurry titlebar buttons
  • - grey tooltips

- mintlocale im has no window icon

- mintlocale has no window icon

- hide compton menuitem

- onboard isn't selected as a preferred apps

- mintmenu spamming the logs

- When I want to shut down, the dialog offers «Hibernate» (which I never tried, because it could not work with a small swap-file). But when I first log out and login as another user, the computer remembers that there is an file /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla, which disable the hibernation. Afterwards the quit-dialog will never show to hibernate until reboot. I did not noticed this effect on Ubuntu Mate 18.04 on the same machine (hibernation is still disabled).

Xfce Edition

- xfburn removed

- mintdesktop shows a sidepanel with only one item in it

- Touchpad tap would not work until I installed synaptics touchpad -> synaptics added to Xfce edition

- changing sound volume via hotkey shows two on-screen-displays

- After switching to a guest session and back to my session, the wifi indicator appeared twice in the notification area.

- applet icons are too big

- Suspend worked, but would not ask for my password. I set screen lock in power manager, which I think fixed this in the past, but then it would not suspend at all.

Manual steps for upgraders

apt install libreoffice-sdbc-hsqldb sessioninstaller

apt remove fortune-mod

in Xfce

  • apt install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

remove/reinstall mint-meta-codecs

edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf

remove plka
