2. If you don't like the font choice in Mint, change the theme.
Bingo. you win this thread arc
It' so easy when you know how!
I suggest people look around for all the various video guides and sources that can, among other things, change the fonts Mint uses. Change the theme and colours Mint uses. Change pretty much the whole GUI experience of Mint to what YOU desire. The world is literally your oyster if you are that bothered about it. You can even change the way the forum looks to you. It's amazing what you can do with technology these days.
Clem and the team work damn hard to provide us a great free OS that is not Windows 10, and the guys and gals around here provide a great free (and most importantly functional) forum. Why force them to do your work for you? If you don't like something, change it for your preferences. I would have no issue whatever colour Mint was (as long as it was not black on black!), and IF it bothered me i'd go into the display options and change it. The last thing i'd think to do was demand Clem and the team change it, they have enough to do!
And here to show there is no actual bad-blood from my side (just mild surprise), i'll send those of you that have a BIG issue with how things look to the dedicated forum where you can no doubt find all the info you need to make Mint sparkle gold and fart unicorns (probably?):
Zak, I think you have misunderstood what is being said. There is no way for any user of Linux Mint to change the default logo color or the fonts used to represent Linux Mint, seen here:
If I'm missing something and I can change the logo color or the font choices used to represent Linux Mint, let me know. I've never seen those settings in an area of System Systems. I'll be keeping an eye out for your response.
And I know you are extra concerned about all the complaining and griping in this thread from ungrateful users who you feel aren't showing proper respect to Clem and the team and wish no one would ever complain about anything, ever, because you feel we don't have that right while using a free OS.
But, I didn't create the thread and am just mentioning things that bother me, personally, as about 20 other participants have mentioned things they don't like. I am not entirely sure why you have chosen to single me out as the only one in this thread who isn't "grateful to Clem" or is an ungrateful and privileged 1st World person who doesn't have real problems because, everybody is complaining about something.
I haven't seen you tell a poster here who complained about certain aspects of Synaptic to simply code Synaptic to their liking and to quit complaining because it's a free OS. I haven't seen you tell a poster who complained about not being about to upgrade the kernel with sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to just use another distro if you don't like it because the people who work hard to maintain Mint don't need to hear your ungrateful and privileged remarks.
Surely you haven't unilaterally decided that my concerns about the color green, or anything else, are not to be mentioned or discussed while you give free reign to all others who have what you consider "valid" complaints.
Why do you get to personally decide that my concerns don't matter? Why haven't you decided to zero in on any of the other user's complaints about what they don't like? I only ask that you do not ban me for being ungrateful to Clem and will let me continue to post in other threads.
This thread was flowing pretty naturally until you decided that you, personally, would determine what other users could mention and could not mention and that not enough reverence was being shown to the people who work hard to maintain MInt. My gripe about the color green would have long since passed and been forgotten about a couple of pages ago if it weren't for you.
Maybe you could just communicate privately with the mods/Admins of the board and tell them that you will not tolerate these types of threads any longer and something needs to be done about it. Who knows, you might get your wish and no one will ever be allowed to talk about anything they dislike about Linux Mint again.
