A question about keyboard shortcuts

Did a clean install of v18.3 Mate and it is working in all but one area, see https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=206&t=241355 . As reported there, other key modifiers (Ctrl, Alt) work without any problem but Mod4 (the Windows key) does not. Note: I did alter the shortcut key for the Min...

Re: Install ONLY necessary fonts by default, please!

Hi Turtle One question that hasn't been asked how is your hard disk Have you just partitioned with just / and swap partitions? Or did you include a separate partitionon for /Home?

Re: Font identiy...

No, I think it was the choice of the Secretary of the Club, who held that position for about 30 years.Who knows, over time, I they may be open to a change in design. Any ideas of a good font to use for a letterhead? Recommending a change in design can lead to hurt feelings if the person who designe...

Re: Font identiy...

Moem is correct, the second sample is Comic Sans. It is a shame the Association selected two of the worst fonts to use. It is a bigger shame the Association is set on using them - it screams the logo, letterhead, menu, whatever was not created by a graphic artist or designer. No, I think it was the...

Nope! I didn't recognise it. I have to confess, though, that now you have pointed it out, I dimly remember in a previous life (when I wasn't ancient :) ) I had used for something.

Re: Font identiy...

Thank you for your suggestions but, unfortunately, the Association decided upon the font many years ago and will not change :(

The other font used in the letterhead is also unknown to me. Are you able to identify it, please?

Re: Logo to improve

I still consider the design submitted by troken way back is the most attractive logo I've seen for Linux Mint.
