Changing font sizes in Menu, etc

Postby rlcoleman1 » Sat Nov 22, 2014 11:40 pm

How does a person change the font sizes. The fonts sizes are small in the menu items, etc. There must be a way to change the system font sizes. Xubuntu Linux which is based on Ubuntu has a means by which font sizes can be made larger or smaller.
Thank you for any response to my query.

You need to go to dConf Editor in System Tools | System Preferences - if not present, open a terminal (Ctrl+ Alt+ T) and enter:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools


Once installed, launch dConf Editor and go to Gnome | Desktop | interface - If memory serves me correctly - currently downloading Linux Isos in Win 7 - you change the 'scale factor' from 1 to 1.2 and so on.

Will post back once in Zorin to advise.

Hi, there is an alternative tool "Gnome Tweak Tool" to change Fonts and their sizes. It can be installed either from software center or using terminal.

Enter following command to install tweak tool:

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

It is easier to use than dConf Editor, Here is the Fonts configuration window in tweak tool.
