Not a total duplicate. Although changing system fonts is covered in the link, changing fonts in terminal and gedit are not. –  amc May 4 '12 at 15:06

In fonts you can change the system wide font.

For gedit:

gedit

For terminal: terminal

For the terminal, you can right-click in the content window (not the title bar), and choose 'Profiles', then 'Profile preferences'. You then get the same dialog as showed in 0x00F's answer
