Users Can Now Rename Battery Powered Devices On Linux Mint 18 Through Cinnamon 3.0 DE

Linux Mint users must really be eager for the upcoming version of the operating system with several reports confirming huge improvements to the already close to perfect operating system.
Most of the reports are pointing to what everybody expected as the new version of Linux Mint code named “Sarah” to have either Cinnamon 3.0 or Mate 1.14 as its default desktop environment giving users a taste of the Arc GTK theme and Moka icon set

One of most talked about feature of the default desktop environment which is Cinnamon 3.0 is to have the ability to rename the battery powered devices.

The added feature was announced by Linux Mint project leader Clement Lefebvre who stated that users can now rename battery powered devices in Cinnamon 3.0 and that the option can be found in the control settings.

“And then I noticed my three PS4 controllers were all called ‘Wireless Keyboard’ (Sony doesn’t put any model/vendor information in them),” says Clement Lefebvre in today’s announcement. “And then I noticed my MacBook Pro laptop battery had a really weird name I really didn’t like”


Updates are expected in the coming weeks for the Cinnamon 3.0 desktop environment, which is also said will give users the ability to scroll with two fingers on modern touchpads including a new sound configuration module.
