I'm running Google Chrome on Arch Linux with KDE 5. Just yesterday, Chrome's tab text, omnibox text, and bookmark bar text switched to a different font; the tab and omnibox text also became misaligned vertically. I tried changing both KDE's and Chrome's default fonts, but the text in question respects neither. Clearing .config/google-chrome and reinstalling Chrome did nothing. What can I do to solve this?


This was suggested by "achillion" on Arch's IRC channel:

You should check GTK's font and theme settings by launching the KDE GTK configurator with this command: kcmshell5 kde-gtk-config.

You must also install the configurator by installing the extra/kde-gtk-config package.

Relaunch Google Chrome after saving your changes in the configurator.
