Versione 21.1

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

Linux Mint 21.1 was given a fresh look and feel.

The operating system looks cleaner and more modern. It’s also more configurable and comes packed with a variety of themes.


The desktop was tidied up and now only shows essential items: The installation icon, items you drop on the desktop, files placed in ~/Desktop and mounted devices.

The home folder was already easily accessible so it was removed from the desktop. It’s pinned in the panel and can be opened from the main menu or by pressing Super+E on the keyboard.

Computer, Trash and Network icons were also removed. They are only used occasionally and remain available within the file manager.

These changes only affect the defaults. If you want these icons on your desktop you can of course bring them back in the preferences.

Vibrant Colors

The accent colors are way more vibrant than before. They lift the mood and make Linux Mint more trendy and more beautiful.

This is something we’ve been wanting to do for a while but it was difficult to achieve. Vibrant colors compete with information for your attention and they create high contrasts which can lead to an unpleasant experience. We want the desktop to look great but not at the cost of comfort.

To use vibrant accent colors we had to use less accents. In the past our themes used soft colors but these colors were featured in many widgets and desktop elements. You would see a lot of green but that green was muted.

We removed the use of accent colors on the panel, in the menus and we switched to yellow folders. So you now see only a little bit of green, but when you do it’s more flamboyant.

We also switched to Aqua by default. We don’t need to look green to be Linux Mint. We’re Linux Mint no matter what and we want to use the color that looks the most sexy out of the box.

Legacy Options

Whenever we make drastic changes we make sure to give people the choice and the ability to go back to the way things were.

The way Linux Mint looked in 20.2 is now named “Mint-Y-Legacy” and is available as an alternative in the theme options.

Legacy themes and icons are installed by default.

Mouse Pointer

Linux Mint 21.1 switched to the Bibata mouse pointer theme from Abdulkaiz Khatri.


The system sounds were also changed to improve the user experience. The new sounds come from Material Design V2. They feel modern and reassuring.

Icon Themes

To give users more choice Linux Mint 21.1 features alternative icon themes.

In addition to Mint-X, Mint-Y and Mint Legacy themes, the following themes are installed by default:

  • Breeze
  • Papirus
  • Numix
  • Yaru
