Thanks, Tim!  I'll struggle with the awful MATE for a little longer.

I was part of a discussion on another mailing list recently.  We could between 
us think of no other DE that caters for poor eyesight anyhting like as well 
as TDE - which caters well by being so easily adaptable, whatever ones reason 
for wanting to adapt it.  (Mind you, MATE on Linux Mint appears to be 
particularly bad - again, not just my observation.)
