Linux Mint 20.3 and LMDE 5: Popular Ubuntu and Debian derivatives are getting darker

Post a Comment

Linux Mint 20.3 (“Una”) based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (“Focal Fossa”) and the next Linux Mint Debian Edition (“LMDE”), which from version 5 is based for the first time on the new Debian 11 (“Bullseye”) , still rely on the in-house desktop Cinnamon 5, which is said to have a greatly expanded dark mode.

Even more dark mode for apps under Linux Mint

Like the website 9to5Linux Quoted from the developers’ September newsletter, the dark topic of the two successors to Linux Mint 20.2 (“Uma”) and LMDE 4 is expanded once again and applied to Celluloid, Gnome Terminal, Hypnotix, Pix and XViewer.

Each of the apps that support dark mode can be visually configured and used regardless of the selected theme and can be better highlighted by a new accent color.

In this case, the applications can also be operated in dark mode if the operating system is actually used with the light theme.

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.

Linux Mint

In addition, the standard theme (“Mint-Y”) for Cinnamon 5 and Xfce 4.16 should receive slight optical retouching. Both Linux Mint 20.3 and LMDE 5 are expected this year and the first preview versions should soon be available for testing. The final version based on Debian 11 is not expected to be released until mid-2022.
