Linux Mint KDE Graduates from RC

Back in January we were announcing that the RC (Release Candidate) of Linux Mint 12 codename 'Lisa' has been released to the public. The RC is now old news and you can forget about it. The Linux Mint team has just recently announced that Linux Mint KDE graduated from RC, that the final version has been rolled out to the public.

If you’re on Linux Mint 12 KDE RC, apply any level 1 and level 2 updates in the Update Manager and you will be on the final version. If you are not on Linux Mint 12 KDE, I invite you to download the operating system; you can get it straight from the developer here. Additional download links are available on the Linux Mint blog here.


Before you go get Linux Mint KDE and put it to the test, perhaps you would like to know what new bits and pieces the operating system has to offer. Here’s a very quick look at What’s New in Linux Mint 12 KDE:
  • The latest and recently released KDE 4.7.4.
  • Hybrid ISO images to effortlessly make bootable USB sticks that act like a liveDVD (this is the first Linux Mint release to use Hybrid ISO images)
  • DuckDuckGo, the privacy-oriented search engine praised by Opera Software, is set as the default search engine. You can of course change the search engine to something else if you so desire. But if you take the time to find out what DuckDuckGo has to offer, chances are you will not want to change.
  • The OS features these upstream components: Ubuntu 11.10, Linux 3.0, KDE 4.7.4.

For additional information on what Linux Mint 12 KDE has to offer check out this What’s New page.

The system requirements for Linux Mint 12 KDE are: 32 or 64-bit processor (the 64-bit edition works on 64-bit processors, the 32-bit edition works on 32 and 64-bit processors), a minimum of 512MB RAM or a recommended 1GB RAM, 5GB of disk space, a graphics card that can handle 800x600 resolution, and a DVD drive or USB port.
