I just did it myself and it works fine! Mint 8 Gnome (Main) just right-click on the Menu, click preferences, delete the <control> part of the shortcut. You have to log out to make it stick

EDIT: in fact a search for 'super key menu' would have led you to this http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... nu#p259931 on the first page!

I understand the little things make a difference but surely it's a bit much to go back to Linux Mint 7 because of it, especially when Linux Mint 8 offers a great deal more in other ways.

beefstu - I did as you suggested but the menu opens where the Menu button is (in other words as if you clicked on the button) - what I want to happen is that it opens where the mouse is, with a smaller menu (like pressing Alt-F1); Mint7 lets me do this but not Mint8
