Great news, and you're most welcome :)

If you want volume key notifications, see if this works:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,7139.msg73008.html#msg73008

Theoretically it should for most, those keybindings for some reason stop notifications .. the keybindings aren't necessary for most users but they are for a few, hence adding them as a compromise (rather volume keys work for everyone).

Is it just the login screen ? .. ie. when you log back in is the resolution correct ?

Using leftWin would be impossible because that's already bound to opening the whiskermenu.

But if you have a RightWin key...

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
xfce4-keyboard-settings
on the "Layout" tab, click the dropmenu titled "Compose Key", and select "Right Win".

Now if you quickly hit RightWin+E+= you should get a symbol

Hi Crippled and welcome to the forum :)

Even though I love Ghost 67's poetic style, can you please remove the video link from your signature, it kinda looks a mess when it's in every post you make .. TIA :)

Now you've brought it up, I'll see about writing a little GUI utility to change cursor size in the PM10 Respin

BTW, (even though I love Ghost 67's poetic style) can you please remove the video link from your signature, it kinda looks a mess when it's in every post you make so repeated multiple times on a forum page .. TIA :)

Try this...

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo xed ~/.config/lxsession/Peppermint/desktop.conf
find the line that currently reads
Code: [Select]
iGtk/CursorThemeSize=18
and change it to say
Code: [Select]
iGtk/CursorThemeSize=36
or maybe even
Code: [Select]
iGtk/CursorThemeSize=72
or any other size you wish.

then SAVE the file .. the cursor should change as soon as you click 'Save'.

The other option might be him insisting on his accountant using something else .. or a new accountant.

There's something wrong with a world where the people YOU pay make the stipulations ???
