Hi Marc,

I just checked on my system (Mageia 1 ->  a Mandriva fork), FreeSans is

I think I had seen somewhere on one of the wiki pages, a specific
recommendation for a font for print, was is not Vegur?

I'm not sure, that it was a recommmendation - Vegur is the font, that is
used for the LibreOffice logo.

I've made a few more screenshots with the Clearlooks theme and the different
greens from the
LibO branding page.

You can find them all here:

I also made those screenshots under Mageia 1, I didn't set a specific font.
It just says "Sans"
or "Sans Bold". For one set of screenshots I changed from a 10 point font to
12 points, to see
how this would look like. For the font rendering I chose "Best contrast"
inspite of me having a
flatscreen monitor.

Any comments are welcome.


Thanks for doing this Sigrid

One comment is that maybe next time, not have the spell check on for 
these. It just make it a little more difficult for evaluation. We really 
need the comments from the documentation team people on the look and 
feel for our documents and especially for print. At this point, we 
should try to accommodate the comments from Jean Hollis Weber on this 
topic and try to find a theme OR create our own theme for this purpose. 
Maybe none of the "pre-packaged" themes will work for what we need.

I've briefly looked at the samples Sigrid and someone else posted.
Thanks to both of you! My first thought is that a variation on
Clearlooks (colour and perhaps font) should work very well. But I want
to do some printing tests on a b/w printer before saying more. I'll get
back to this list with more comments later today (it's 07:00 here).
