Linux Mint is a community-driven Linux distribution for desktop and laptop computers based on Debian and Ubuntu, bundled with a variety of free and open-source applications. It has an Ubuntu-based release simply named Linux Mint, and a Debian-based release called LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition).

Linux Mint releases follows the support cycle of the Ubuntu release they are based on. This support does not extend to the duration of ESM. Linux Mint users can opt in to receive Extended Security Maintenance via Ubuntu Pro for some packages once the main support period ends. But Linux Mint considers that release End of Life once it enters that state, so Linux Mint packages will not be receiving any updates.

Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) stops supporting a release shortly after a new LMDE release comes out. This however is still subject to change on a release by release basis.

Ubuntu Package Support

  • Linux Mint has its own repositories for Linux Mint specific packages, but relies directly on Ubuntu repositories for the majority of the package base, including its mirrors.
  • Packages installed from the universe repository are maintained by the community, and they may not receive timely security updates.

Feature Support

  • 19.3 ‘Tricia’ is the last Linux Mint release to support 32-bit systems outside of LMDE. 32-bit software support is still supported, following Ubuntu upstream.
  • 18.3 ‘Sylvia’ is the last Linux Mint release to support KDE.
