I have a fresh install of Fedora 24 with GNOME on my laptop. How do I change the default Sans Serif font (that websites like this, github etc fall back on)? I want to get rid of Cantarella.

Some research suggest to modify usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css but I don't have that file, in that directory there is only a gnome-classic.cssand a gnome-classic-high-contrast.cssfile there. Should I change the font somewhere else?

You can choose fonts via GNOME Tweak Tool.

  • I know, but that is just the fonts for window titles etc within GNOME. Aug 19, 2016 at 6:44
