I set my system font to 'aakar medium' in gnome-tweaks. Now the letters in a word are a bit closer to each other. There's no bug reported for this issue. Is there anything I can do to change the kerning, or inter-letter spacing?


Unfortunately, this may just be a feature of the font itself in your gnome environment. I believe it is possible (at least on certain Mac environments) to increase letter/font spacing by editing your gnome.css (or, maybe gtk.css) stylesheet but I am not clear on how this method works or if it is still possible in the latest release of gnome/gtk. Try resizing the terminal or adjusting your desktop resolution to see if the problem persists.
