Changing font-size in Ubuntu 12.10 without MyUnity

Since MyUnity isn’t available yet in Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal i though i’d write a quick update to my previous post which isn’t working on Ubuntu 12.10.

The process is fairly simple, just run the command below and adjust them to whatever your preferred settings are.

Just keep in mind to double-check that the fonts you’re using are indeed install. Otherwise you’ll end up in a world of hurt when you reboot.

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font "Ubuntu 10"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences titlebar-font "Ubuntu Bold 10"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface document-font-name "Ubuntu 10"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name "Ubuntu 10"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface monospace-font-name "Ubuntu Mono 11"
