I'm finding that several programs have tiny font with Fedora 16. Google Chrome, for example, has miniscule font in the tabs. MATLAB has tiny font in the menus (File, Edit, etc.)

I have the "larger font" accessibility option enables, but it doesn't affect these programs. On Windows, "larger font" does improve the font sizes of these programs.

What can I do about this?


If you're using GNOME 3 on fedora core 16, try this.

# yum install gnome-tweak-tool

Either run it via terminal by typing gnome-tweak-tool or search in the menu under “advanced setting”. There you can change the default font settings to whatever you like.

  • I installed the tool, but it doesn't do what I need it to. I need 10 reputation to upload an image for illustration purposes--a little help? – Tianxiang Xiong Apr 11 '12 at 2:29
  • type this in address bar of chrome, "chrome://settings/advanced" and then choose "customize fonts" to your need. A somewhat similar procedure could also work for matlab. – Bharat Kul Ratan Apr 11 '12 at 5:34
