how can I change the default font in the system (in web browser, file navigator, etc) ?

Asked by Titien on 2012-09-12

I would like to be able to change the font of all the system, not only the windows title like I found. If you can just give me the gsettings commands it would be perfect.

Have a look at org.gnome.desktop.interface, I don't remember the exact key name, but something with font of course ;)

In fact my question was more like : Where can I find the key's list (if you don't have the key's name) ? :)

Ah, the terminal can give you suggestions when pressing tab while typing on the gsettings command, otherwise install the dconf-tools package and run the dconf-editor, which is probably the easiest way.

Gnome Tweak Tool will work as well

Thanks Tom Beckmann, that solved my question.

Tom thank you. I didn't know that I could have the key's list in the terminal, that's enough for what I want to do. :)

Thank you Kathen for having answered.
