I’ve always felt that the default font size on Ubuntu was a bit too large for me so naturally that ended up being the first thing I tweaked every time I installed Ubuntu.

Since there’s no fonts option within the default “appearance” tool for Ubuntu, the workaround is to use the “gnome-tweak-tool”. Here’s how.

First, Install the Gnome tweak tool.
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool<br />

The, run the tool and edit your fonts size on the “fonts” tab.
