Usermin version 1.690 released

Howdy all,

I’ve rolled version 1.690 of Usermin into the repositories, to support switching to Authentic Theme as the default in new Virtualmin installations.

Changes since 1.680:

  • Updates to the Filemin file manager and Authentic theme.

Changes since 1.670 (I noticed we still had an older version in some repos, my mistake!):

  • German and Catalan translation updates.
  • Added the Filemin File Manager module, which will eventually replace the old Java file manager.

Authentic has gotten far less attention on Usermin than Webmin/Virtualmin, so bug reports are welcome! There is an Authentic project in the ticket tracker, which is managed by Ilia, or you can file tickets directly in his github ( The same is true of the new Filemin file manager; tickets can be filed directly with us, as the original author hasn’t been able to spend as much time lately on it and so Jamie has taken on some of the bugfixing.

We’d like for Usermin to become a best-in-class webmail client over the next year or two, so we welcome suggestions, contributions (in the form of code, docs, translations), and just having people actually use it regularly so we know what’s in need of attention.



Hi, I upgraded and no matter what theme I have in Webmin, Usermin looks like this…


Anyone else having my apparent problem?

Love the new site btw :slight_smile:

Hmm…that’s the ancient original Webmin theme (sort of). I’m not sure what to make of that. I have upgraded a couple of Usermin instances and found I was able to switch to Authentic without issue.

Is it possible your system has disk space issues? I’m not sure what else could cause Usermin to sort of fall back to old, hard-code, style behavior (this is roughly what Webmin looks like with no theme loaded, at all).

Plenty of disc space, just updated another server which is using the authentic theme, went to usermin and its the blue framed theme?

Try restarting Usermin and reloading the page, maybe? I’m stumped, as I can’t reproduce the problem. What OS/version are you using?

Also, remember that Usermin has its own theme settings, found under Webmin in Webmin->Usermin Configuration->Usermin Themes. Is it set to Authentic there?

Thanks Joe, sorted now, last response nailed it.
