I use 3 languages using IBus input in Ubuntu 13.10. How can I choose a custom font for one of the languages?

Changing font in this window only temorarily changes the font of input. When I close this window and open again, font is again set back to the default value. Is this some bug?

That definitely sounds like a bug in either gnome-settings-daemon (which saves settings) or gnome-control-center (which presents the user interface).

Does that mean, there is some CLI way to do it? If yes, what is it? – nitishch Oct 31 '13 at 17:49
