After many hours of searching $ sudo apt-get purge pango-graphite worked for me. This was broken on a dist upgrade to 14.10, and since I spend 90+% of my time in mate-terminal or gnome-terminal this was truly driving me crazy. Thanks!

The answer is given elsewhere in the site as follows: Go to browser settings as in edit>preferences>content>advanced and uncheck the box that allows other programs to choose the fonts for the page and use the fonts that I choose. But I found that this does not work for all languages. Some Indian languages are still not displayed, for instance.

What terminal is this? Add the output of echo $TERM to your question. This can happen when you have escape sequences (as generated by tput) in your prompt that are not surrounded by \[ and \]. Those backslashed brackets tell Bash that the escape sequences do not take up any horizontal space on the screen. Without them around the escape sequences, Bash ...

I had large text all tuned for a media centre that's a distance away. Today I opened Nautilus to find same thing, icon's huge, text tiny, no matter what I set Universal Access or zoom to. After a full restart it's back to responding. I've NEVER run into this in any version previous to 14.04. Perhaps due to a recent update? Anyhow, try Universal Access ...

Like Rmano guessed I had to delete ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf which included (wrong) settings for the antialiasing of fonts. Any problematic program started after deleting that file, rendered the fonts right again.

In those two samples it looks like the font rendering algorithm is the same, one is just much darker than the other (and the darker one looks, to me, better). This would be font smoothing "gamma" - gamma controlling how light/dark the partially lit pixels are adjusted. Both the two following articles recommending setting font smoothing in Wine using ...

I solved this by simply grabbing the whole /etc/fonts directory off another U14.10 computer, wiping out the bad stuff on this computer, copying over the new /etc/fonts/, then running sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig . . . logged out, logged back in. Solved. All I wanted to do was use bitmapped terminus in my terminal. . .

Ok I got it now: the different appearance results from the theme itself. When a non sans-serif font is selected by using unity-tweak-tool, it is displayed consistently throughout the whole desktop. This seems to affect only sans serif fonts, most noticeably with the Ubuntu Light font. I can live with that now ;)

Gtk programs will use gtk settings. If all fonts everywhere are too small you can work around it by changing display settings, e.g., what I do with my htpc and telly is to set dpi value. Setting them via gnome control center or whatever should work if you start gnome-settings-daemon in ~/.i3/config, otherwise, settings are in like ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and ...
