The newest release of the popular Linux Mint distribution, ‘linux mint 19.3,’ offers several new multimedia codecs. First, Gnote replaces Xplayer, and the media player now includes Warpinator, a re-implementation of Giver with an MPV backend. Second, multimedia codecs can be installed at any time after the distribution has been installed. You can now enjoy the benefits of these features without any restrictions.
Celluloid replaces Xplayer
As a user of Linux Mint, you can’t go wrong with the new Celluloid media player. It replaces Xplayer and has better hardware acceleration and higher resolution. The new application also removes the mono dependency, allowing for better performance and better resolution on high-end displays. You can still install Tomboy from the repos, but we recommend you switch to Gnote. It is more user-friendly and will give you an edge over Tomboy. Lastly, you can try Drawing, which is the new app that replaces Tomboy.
The updated logo is reflected in the new Plymouth theme and the Grub screen. The XPlayer and VLC programs are no longer available in Linux Mint 19.3. You will need to perform a fresh install if you are running the previous edition of the Linux Mint operating system. The updated version of Linux Mint offers a bootable ISO image that you can install on any compatible computer.
Gnote replaces Tomboy
Gnote, the default note-taking application, has been replaced by Sticky Notes. It also has the features of Gnote: support for desktop display, backup, and importing notes. Tomboy was the last Mono application available on Linux Mint, but was not HiDPI compatible. Gnote is more modern and user-friendly. The following are some of the other improvements to Gnote. This release includes new features that improve its functionality.
Support for HiDPI is now built-in by default, while better icons in the system bar are available. Clear flags are now available in the language settings. Screensavers and theme previews now look crisper, while the flags in Language Settings and Software Sources tools are no longer blurred. In addition, Celluloid replaces Xplayer, the default multimedia player. Gnote is based on GStreamer/ClutterGST, but supports native menus.
Warpinator reimplementation of Giver
Linux Mint 20 brings with it the Warpinator file transfer application, a reimplementation of Giver. Giver, a popular file-sharing tool from the Ubuntu and supported distributions, was discontinued. In its reincarnation, Warpinator eliminates the need for external media and server configurations. The user interface of Warpinator is simple and intuitive, so even novice users can get started with file-sharing without any hassles.
Another update to Linux Mint is its new color scheme and background images. It’s now very similar to Windows 7, so it’s easy to navigate. In addition to these updates, the new version of Mint also comes with the Warpinator tool, a reimplementation of the “Giver” tool. In addition, Mint 20 includes two new colors for the Mint-Y theme.
Warpinator based on MPV backend
The latest version of Warpinator, based on the MPV backend, was released in September by the Linux Mint project. Although Warpinator has been available on the Linux Mint repositories for quite some time, the application has recently been made available as a Flatpak package. With this release, Linux Mint users can now install Warpinator on any Linux distribution that supports the Flatpak format. Several popular distributions support Flatpak, including Ubuntu, Red Hat, Suse, Debian, Ubuntu, and even Chrome OS.
The new version of Warpinator allows users to share files via their local network. It can preserve file permissions and is easily installed through the application’s application menu. It can also be updated via the flatpak update command. The application has a graphical interface and is compatible with all major Linux distributions. While some users might still find Warpinator difficult to install, Linux Mint has made the process easier.
Hypnotix video streaming application
If you are looking for a great streaming video application for Linux mint, you should try the Hypnotix. This application can be downloaded from the Linux Mint main menu. The program is divided into three categories: TV channels, Movies, and Series. You can select any of them according to the region you are in, and then start the playback. Currently, Hypnotix is still in beta, but it’s worth checking out if you’re running Arch Linux.
Once installed, Hypnotix looks like a normal application with two icons: a monitor and a settings gear. Click the Settings gear and fill out your username and password. You can also use the TV icon to add or delete providers. Once you’ve selected the provider, click the Tv icon to view the channels it supports. If you want to watch different TV shows on your Linux Mint machine, you can watch them with Hypnotix.
Document manager called Thingy
Linux Mint 20.3 introduces a new XApp, a Document Manager called Thingy. Thingy tracks your reading progress and can even mark files as favourites. It also includes a Hypnotix IPTV application and improved search functionality. Also, you can now ‘fit’ images to the screen’s width and height. Thingy is available for download from the Linux Mint website.
Unlike other operating systems, Linux Mint’s Software Manager offers a convenient way to install and remove applications. It looks much like the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store, but it also offers user reviews. The menu bar and toolbar show what is available by category. The package list is organized by category. Selecting an application will show you its popularity and a description. It’s as simple as that.
