Linux Mint Debian 201109 Released

Filed under

Linux Mint can be a bit difficult to keep up with these days. One is based on Ubuntu, another on Debian. The newest Debian-based version comes with GNOME or Xfce while the Ubuntu-based counterpart is available in GNOME or LXDE. 32- and 64-bit versions are available for both. Today brought a new release: Linux Mint 201109 Debian (GNOME & Xfce).

Mint 201109 Debian boasts all the same features as Ubuntu Mint (released in May 2011). The installer has received some improvements in things like the keyboard variants, locale, bug fixes, and UUID in fstab. Support has been added for Update Packs with a custom Update Manager and staged repositories for it. Also new this release is GTK2/GTK3 theme compatibility and fresh-squeezed software.

A meta-package rarely contains anything other than a changelog and perhaps copyright information, it contains no applications or libraries within itself. The way they work is by having a list of “dependencies” that the package manager reads. The package manager then goes to the repositories to find the dependencies and installs them.
