A List of super-cool package you should installed on your Linux Mint

I installed Linux Mint the first time and now trying to get used to the system. The good new is there are plenty of funny things we can tweaks! For example, I did turn my Mint OS’s theme into something very similar to Mac OS Big Sur! The changes were amazing and I totally love it!

Here are some funny things you should try on your Linux (Mint). The list will be updated in the future.

  1. Modify startup program In Mint you can easily set which program to be run at the startup. Find “Startup Application” and run the software, it provides fairly good interface for you to tweak. This is needed to run the below package at startup

  2. Plank

A simple “plank” for your desktop (which is of course, inspired from MacOS)

Run sudo apt get plank and you are good to go. You can manually set plank to be run at startup

  1. OneDriver

The software help you to access to your OneDriver. It follow the principle: only download the file when needed. Very handy. You can also set the UI to run at the startup (Like I do)
