The original Budgie is supposed to be different, jettisoning a lot of GNOME in favor of qt. Let's see how that turns out for Ubuntu Budgie.

Any idea if there is an easy option to set the default font in Gedit as i don't seem to have any custom settings , i tried pressing ALT as suggested at google but that done nothing.

Thanks

In Ubuntu you should just be able to hover the cursor on the title bar for the menu options to show

I have ubun 17.1 and mint 18.3 dual boot.
I slightly prefer Mint over Ubuntu even though the "mint*" tools - which seem to be the main difference - are pretty primitive. This Mint forum is a lot better than the Ubuntu forum.

Ubuntu did the "spectre/meltdown" hack/fix better than Mint: in Mint I can't install any nvidia drivers after doing the (kernel) fixes, in Ubuntu no problems.

I tried it, uninstalled it after about 10 minutes and labelled the installation DVD "sucks".
