So, I’m using Ubuntu 16.04.1 but this should work in Chrome with any OS to enlarge the font size of Bookmarks and Bookmarks Bar: Open Chrome and click on three dots/bars in upper right corner to open the “Customize and Control Chrome” menu. Scroll down to “Settings” and click it. Scroll down the Settings menu to “Show Advance Settings” and click it. Scroll ...

The application settings override the Xresources (or .Xresouces), You should look into /etc/X11/app-defaults/XTerm to change the fonts permanently. The SimpleMenumenuLabel.font is for the menu itself, the others look like *fontMenu*font2*Label: Tiny *VT100.font2: 5x7 or *VT100.utf8Fonts.font2: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--8-80-75-75-c-...

After some experimenting i've found the way to force light fonts in interface. You just remove all styles thicker than your desired. Now my interface is running in thin Roboto, looks stunning on hidpi display. Generally it works this way: Pick font (Roboto in my case) Download files from somewhere, fonts.google.com is a good place to start things off ...

Although it's a really old post, I thought of leaving the solution I found after searching for quite a while. Set the Text Scaling Factor to something different from 1.0 (1.01 worked for me) and leave Antialiasing set to Rgba. I did this using the unity-tweak-tool.

It seems to be bug 1598316. I downgraded gtk2-engines-murrine from 0.98.2-0ubuntu2.1 to 0.98.2-0ubuntu2 which fixed the issue for me. How to downgrade package

Apparently, that is not possible to do with a single tweak. I have been looking at the source code and nowhere I see an option of font color (see here for a list of all possible options). This could be easily added, and you can ask for this feature to the LightDM team joining the mailing list here. I strongly recommend that, as it would also help other users ...

Actually you don't need to bother modifying idea.sh, which is volatile under updates. There is a user-specific configuration file, ~/.IntelliJIdea2016.1/config/idea.jdk (the namings change accordingly), which stores the boot JDK. Official references: Selecting the JDK version the IDE will run under Directories used by the IDE to store settings, caches, ...

Just to add to the answers already provided. You can simply drag fonts onto the font list in the application to install them. No need to extract first. Files, folders and archives are supported directly.

You will notice this happening when the OS is able to set a font that it prefers, if you would like to keep the font as it is run: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -p medium console-setup Then select the Do not change the boot/kernel font option from the list of options, unless of course another of the options there is more appealing for you, in which case you may ...

I got it. The setting that needed to be altered is found under: System Settings> Application Style> GNOME Application Style (GTK) I needed to increase the font size from 10 to 12 to match the font size i chose under: System Settings> Font> Fonts Here is the effect before and after: Firefox is using font 10 and Opera is font 12.

what you can do is a simple method. download tahoma font. Then copy that downloaded font and all you have to do is paste it in this folder: /usr/share/fonts/truetype But since this folder is protected, you will have to open this folder as root. i.e right click and OPEN AS ROOT. provide your password and paste it there. THATS ALL...!!!

It sounds like KDE installed successfully, but the login manager is still defaulting to Unity. To load KDE, you'll need to manually select it in the login screen. First, log out. Then on the Ubuntu login screen, try clicking on the Ubuntu logo near your username. There should now be a list of installed desktop environments to choose from. Choose "KDE", log ...

The issue might be with those programs themselves having a font override. I know within Firefox there are font options and sizes you can change that aren't controlled by the system unless high contrast colors are used. For Firefox it's found under Preferences> Content and going into "advanced" within that page will allow further tweaking. Not sure if it's ...

I know this is an old question but I came across it when looking for an answer to a similar problem, tiny font sizes in browser tabs and in program menus. The solution I found (for Kubuntu 16.04 anyway) was in the system settings> fonts> and at the bottom of the page is an option to "Force fonts DPI:" with an option to increase or decrease the number (...

You can get this to display correctly by loading both the default font and the desired font. Then, set the font to the desired font. When the characters for the box are not found, the regular font which is also loaded will act as a default and the needed characters will be supplied.
