I have questions, if that's OK with you: 1. I am using a Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop, 80 GB HDD, running Ubuntu MATE 17.10, 32-bit. I attempted to remove several Noto Family fonts from the system, using two generic font managers (at different times) from the Synaptic repository. Unfortunately, both of them failed to remove the selected fonts, so I went straight to Synaptic to remove the fonts, which are listed packages in the repository. Instead of Synaptic removing the selected fonts, I lost all of the custom fonts I had installed for my needs. Thankfully, I have backups, and will attempt to replace them in the future, ideally, after I receive some helpful information from anyone reading this. Question: Are there any flavors of Ubuntu and Linux that offer "built-in" font managers? My experience with Synaptic was disappointing (and equally so with the downloaded font managers). 2. Since Ubuntu MATE 17.10 is ending support for 32-bit machines as of July 2018, my only option from them is to download the older MATE 16. I would rather not, because I have enjoyed MATE 17 and 18 a lot, and I already miss using MATE 18. What flavors of Linux outside of MATE will offer me the flexibility and limitless customization that I've experienced from MATE? I hope the people at Canonical will reconsider, and allow us "32'ers" the opportunity to join them again. If not, I may have to start looking elsewhere. My laptop may not be the latest or most recent machine around, but it's dependable, stable, and gets the job done. Thanks for sharing.
