Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My O.S. is Lubuntu 12.04. And I'm having some problems to read the text of my screen, because it appears very small. I've read How to increase text size?, but it only explains how to increase text size in Ubuntu and as Lubuntu uses another desktop environment I'm not being able to follow that question.

I've followed these steps, and set all of these to a very distinctive font, but the desktop, the start menu, and application fonts (eg nvidia-settings) fonts are all unchanged. –  bukzor Mar 8 at 20:51
