I use English as my default language and I can change the system font just fine, but I also use Thai language and I don't like the current font how can I change it ?

Great to see a fellow Thai in here.

Now as for the font, I assume you want to change it to Thai serif font. Elementary OS come with both san-serif and serif Thai fonts. All you need to do is change the default font from san-serif to serif. And you can do that by copying these font files:

  • /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto/NotoSerifThai-Bold.ttf
  • /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto/NotoSerifThai-Regular.ttf

to ~/.local/share/fonts/ And then refresh font caches with command fc-cache in the terminal.

You can use fc-list :lang=th to check if your font is registered.

  • Wow it works thank you very much :D !!
