Xubuntu Hirsute Hippo

In less than two weeks there will be a new version of Ubuntu. The April 2021 edition will carry the code name of Hirsute Hippo, a hippopotamus that in the main edition does have hair, but less than we expected. At the end of March, Canonical introduced the furry hippo that will accompany Ubuntu’s background until this October, and today Xubuntu 21.04 He has done the same, but in this case there is no sign of the animal.

The wallpaper Xubuntu 21.04 is what you have below these lines. It is a minimalist background that uses the same colors that we have already seen in the recent past. In the center we see two circles and two triangles that leave a kind of trail, something that right now I am not able to identify. Maybe I am very thick today Sunday at noon but, being a hippopotamus, I do not see it. Although it is also true that Xubuntu is not one of the flavors that the codename animal adds to its funds.

New minimalist background for Xubuntu 21.04

The presentation has been made on Twitter, at least half. In the microblogging network they have put a background with the name of the operating system at the top right and they have told us about its availability, but the background as it will be in Xubuntu 21.04, with its size included, you have it in the previous image. If you want to download it, you can do it from the same image, but also is it availabe on this link, in xubuntu-artwork / usr / share / xfce4 / backdrops.

Xubuntu 21.04 Hirsute Hippo will arrive, along with the rest of the family, the next April 22. Among its novelties, in addition to Linux 5.11, it will highlight the graphical environment updated to XFCE 4.16 and new versions of the desktop applications, such as the Thunar file manager or the Ristretto image viewer.
