    This is a point release based on the latest Ubuntu 18.04.3 and it comes packed with the Linux kernel 5.0.

    I downloaded and quickly tested the edition featuring the Cinnamon 4.4 desktop environment. You may also try the Xfce or MATE edition of Linux Mint 19.3.

New Coverage of Linux Mint Release

  • Linux Mint 19.3 has been released

    Linux Mint 19.3 has been released. The update of the popular Linux distribution is available in the flavors Xfce, Mate and Cinnamon as usually. The new version of the Linux distribution is a long term support release that will be supported until 2023.

    New and existing users may download the ISO images from the official project download site. The new version introduces several changes and new features, brings refinements, and bug fixes among other things.

  • Linux Mint 19.3 ‘Tricia' now available in three editions

    The team behind Linux Mint has announced the availability of Linux Mint 19.3, the announcement comes less than a week after we reported that the final disc images were undergoing tests. As is the case with the last few Linux Mint version, Tricia will be available in three editions: Cinnamon, MATE, and Xfce.

    This update is quite big, it includes a new boot screen, a new logo, a new drawing app, a new video player, and an improved System Reports app, among other things.

    If you’re running Linux Mint 19, 19.1, or 19.2, it’s possible to upgrade to 19.3. In order to upgrade you should make a Timeshift backup, disable your screensaver and upgrade any installed Cinnamon spices, then select ‘Upgrade to “Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia”’ from the Edit menu in the Update Manager. From there you just need to follow the on-screen instructions. If you want to install the new packages you can run sudo apt install celluloid gnote drawing neofetch. Once you’re done, just reboot the computer.

    Linux Mint 19.3 includes Cinnamon 4.4, Linux kernel 5.0, and is based on Ubuntu 18.04 which means packages designed for that system also run on this version of Linux Mint. This version will continue to get security updates until 2023 but work on Linux Mint 20, which will be supported until 2025, will commence shortly with a release due around May or June.

  • Linux Mint 19.3 released (better HiDPI support + new apps and features)

    There’s also a new System Reports feature that will display a warning icon in the system tray to let you know about problems the operating system encounters. For example, if there’s a missing language pack, hardware driver, media codec, or OS update, the icon will let you open a window to see problems, system info, and crash reports.

    Linux Mint has also changed some default apps. The GIMP image editing app has been replaced by a simpler “Drawing” app. The Xplayer media player has been replaced with Celluloid. And the Tomboy note taking application has been replaced by Gnote.

    If you prefer to use GIMP or any of the other old defaults, you can still install them from the Linux Mint repository.

  • Linux Mint 19.2 Users Can Now Upgrade to Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia," Here's How

    The Linux Mint project has opened the upgrade path from the old Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" release to the newly launched Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia" release.

    Based on Canonical's long-term supported Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system and shipping with the Linux 5.0 kernel and the latest Cinnamon 4.4, MATE 1.22, and Xfce 4.14 desktop environments, the Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia" operating system is now available to download.

    However, the live ISO images of Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia" are here only for new deployments of the operating system or for those who choose to reinstall their computers, as a fresh install is always recommended, but many users would prefer to upgrade from an older version.

How to upgrade to Linux Mint 19.3 “Tricia”

Very late coverage by ZDNet

  • Linux Mint 19.3 is here and better than ever

    When I say low-powered, I mean machines from the 2000s. The full version of Linux Mint requires a mere 2GBs of RAM. It can even run with as little as 1GB and with older 32-bit processors. You'll also need at least 15GBs of disk space, but I recommend 20GBs. Finally, you'll need a graphics card and monitor that supports a 1024×768 resolution. In short, you can pretty much run Mint on any PC you have lying around your junk room.

    Beneath the hood, the new Mint is based on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and the 4.15.0-72 Linux kernel. MInt 19.3 is also a LTS version. It will be supported until December 2023. The default kernel has already been upgraded to the Linux 5.0.

    The first thing you'll notice about the new Mint is the warning icon in your system tray. It's not nearly as alarming as it looks. Now, when you boot up Mint, System Report checks for potential issues, such as a missing language package, multimedia codec, an updated hardware driver, or a new version of Linux Mint. Just click on the mini icon and Mint will let you know what's missing or new and guide you to getting the latest and greatest update. You can, of course, just ignore its recommendation and continue on your Minty way. I find it a very handy little feature.

Programming Leftovers

  • C: sigprocmask Function Usage

    You may have heard about socket programming in C. One of the socket functions is the “sigprocmask” function. This function has been usually utilized in the code to inspect or alter the signal mask of the calling function. The signal mask is a term used for a group of signals that are presently blocked and cannot be conveyed for the calling function. Such kind of signal is known as “Blocked Signals.” You can say that a process can still receive the blocked signals, but it will not be used until they are unblocked and released, i.e., raised. Until then, it will be pending. Therefore, within today’s guide, we will be discussing the use of the sigprocmask function in C programming. Let’s have a start. After the Ubuntu 20.04 successful login, you need to launch the shell of the Ubuntu 20.04 system first after the login. So, try out the “Ctrl+Alt+T” shortcut simply on the desktop screen. It will launch the terminal shell for you in some seconds. Make sure to update your system using the apt package of your system. After that, you have to execute the “touch” instruction along with the file name you want to generate, i.e., to create the C file via the shell. This newly created file can be found in the “home” folder of your system’s file explorer. You can try opening it with the “text” editor to create code in it. Another way to open it in the shell is using the “GNU Nano” editor using the “nano” keyword with a file name as demonstrated beneath.

  • C: sigaction function usage

    A sigaction() is a function that allows to call/observe or examine a specific action associated with a particular signal. It is thought to consider a signal and sigaction function on the same page. But in reality, it has not occurred. The signal() function does not block other signals when the current handler’s execution is under process. At the same time, the sigaction function can block other signals until the current handler has returned.

  • delegation of authority from the systems programming perspective – Ariadne's Space

    As I have been griping on Twitter lately, about how I dislike the design of modern UNIX operating systems, an interesting conversation about object capabilities came up with the author of musl-libc. This conversation caused me to realize that systems programmers don’t really have a understanding of object capabilities, and how they can be used to achieve environments that are aligned with the principle of least authority. In general, I think this is largely because we’ve failed to effectively disseminate the research output in this area to the software engineering community at large — for various reasons, people complete their distributed systems degrees and go to work in decentralized finance, as unfortunately, Coinbase pays better. An unfortunate reality is that the security properties guaranteed by Web3 platforms are built around object capabilities, by necessity – the output of a transaction, which then gets consumed for another transaction, is a form of object capability. And while Web3 is largely a planet-incinerating Ponzi scheme run by grifters, object capabilities are a useful concept for building practical security into real-world systems. Most literature on this topic try to describe these concepts in the framing of, say, driving a car: by default, nobody has permission to drive a given car, so it is compliant with the principle of least authority, meanwhile the car’s key can interface with the ignition, and allow the car to be driven. In this example, the car’s key is an object capability: it is an opaque object, that can be used to acquire the right to drive the car. Afterwards, they usually go on to describe the various aspects of their system without actually discussing why anybody would want this.
