Get Involved

No matter how you help us

Thank You

The Linux Mint project receives a great deal of support from its community of users and we would like to thank each and every contributor for participating. We are growing fast and our distribution is getting better every day thanks to you.

Financial help

You can help by making a financial contribution to the project.


Thanks to revenue from advertisements and your donations, the Linux Mint project can afford to buy dedicated servers, advertising campaigns, new hardware and equipment, and to provide an income for the development team.



By sponsoring Linux Mint, you contribute to giving the development team a regular and predictable income. Sponsorships are the best way to help Linux Mint's developers and artists get to the point where they are able to work full-time on Mint-related projects.


Support and promotion

You can help by being part of the community and helping other users.

Join the Community

Linux Mint isn't just an operating system, it's also a dynamic community of people who enjoy, gather, and interact with a free and open project. Make Mint better by welcoming people, participating in community-driven projects (repositories, podcasts, artwork...) or simply by meeting and talking to other Linux Mint users.

Help Others

If you have some spare time and you're willing to help other users with technical problems, you should seriously consider reading the forums and/or joining the IRC channel and helping other Linux Mint users solve the problems you know how to fix.

Project contributions

You can help by helping with bugs, translations and development.

Report bugs

If you notice something that doesn't work properly, troubleshoot it and if you find a bug let us know. Read the Linux Mint Troubleshooting Guide to know how to troubleshoot issues and how to report bugs.



If you speak English and another language, you can help us translate Linux Mint. Your efforts will allow Linux Mint to fully support display in your language. Read the Linux Mint Translation Guide to get started.



We develop tools, applications and a desktop environment for Linux Mint. If you're interested in development read the Linux Mint Developer Guide to get started.
