Linux Mint 12, code-named “Lisa”, officially released

Linux Mint 12 w/Gnome3The team behind the popular open-source Linux Mint operating system has announced the official release of Linux Mint 12, code-named “Lisa”. The new OS brings in the new Gnome 3 and MGSE desktop which allows users to pick and choose which components to customize the desktop to user preference.

Also included with MGSE are additional extensions with multiple enhancements to Gnome 3 by incorporating a mix of old and new, so users will feel right at home with Linux Mint 12 operating system.

Straight out of the box, Linux Mint 12 features two new themes: Mint-Z Dark and Mint-Z, based off of the Mint-X and Zukitwo themes, along with a large assortment of desktop backgrounds.

DuckDuckGo will be the default search engine and no longer tracks user information when making search requests but will provide optimized results to the user. The decision behind the search engine choice is due in part by the projects lead developer, Clement Lefebvre, announcing its partnership with the search engine company.

MATE, the fork of Gnome 2 and compatible with Gnome 3, has also come into the picture with this release. Linux Mint 12 developers mention it is “not completely stable yet, and it’s missing a few parts.” but is collaborating with the MATE developers actively.

Linux Mint 12 system requirements:

  • x86 processor (Linux Mint 64-bit requires a 64-bit processor. Linux Mint 32-bit works on both 32-bit and 64-bit processors).
  • 512 MB RAM (1GB recommended for a comfortable usage).
  • 5 GB of disk space
  • Graphics card capable of 800×600 resolution
  • CD/DVD drive or USB port
