To change font in the Terminal you need dconf-editor. Install it, if you haven't done so:
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Run it and go to path org > gnome > desktop > interface > monospace-font-name.
Enter name of desired font and font size. For example Anonymous Pro 11.
You can also use the command in Terminal instead of the dconf-editor.
To change the font of just the terminal (pantheon-terminal), you can use the dconf-editor (requires an install) or the gsettings command. Edit the font property in the org.pantheon.terminal.settings schema. For example:
$ gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings font 'FreeMono 10'
You will have to close and reopen the terminal for the changes to take ...
Quick Fix - Text Scaling
You can increase the text size of most interface elements by turning on 'Large Text' in the Universal Access settings.
Applications Menu -> System Settings -> Universal Access -> Seeing -> Large Text
The Large Text slider toggles the value of org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor between 1.0 and 1.25.
If you want a ...
They should be placed in the following folders
For personal use
TTF files in ~/.local/share/fonts/truetype (old way was ~/.fonts/truetype)
OTF files in ~/.local/share/fonts/type1 (old way was ~/.fonts/type1)
For system wide use
TTF files in /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype
OTF files in /usr/local/share/fonts/type1
Then sudo fc-cache and you should see ...
The good news is, you may find that many of the fonts used in elementary OS are already in Ubuntu! They are:
Raleway (logotype font)
Droid Sans (window titles)
Open Sans (various)
Alternative, you can install the elementary-fonts package from the elementary OS Stable PPA.
I think what you may be looking for can be done by using dconf-editor. If you do not have it installed, you can do so in Terminal with this:
sudo apt install dconf-editor
Once installed, open dconf-editor and in the left pane navigate to org> gnome> desktop> interface then look for 'text-scaling-factor' in the right pane. The default is, of course, set to ...
I solved it after googling a while; this applies to all gnome based enviroments (at least according to this)
Just run the following lines on terminal, then reset the system normally. Done.
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface document-font-name
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface ...
If you already havent, install elementary-tweaks (For elementary freya):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
Then go to System Settings > Tweaks > Fonts and select the Monospace Font you want as well as its size. You can customize many other things as well from here.
If you want to change the font color, you can use Configurator. Once you've installed the application, you go to org.pantheon.terminal.settings and change the value of foreground to any color you want. The default color in my system is #94a3a5
If you don't want to use Configurator(or dconf-editor) you an use terminal and paste this
gsettings set org....
TrueType fonts can be installed from file manager - double click the .ttf file, font manager will open, click "install".

sudo cp ./yourpath/*.otf /usr/share/fonts/opentype/

Monospace Font: Droid Sans Mono Regular
Titlebar Font: Droid Sans Bold
I recommend you to save all system fonts in a separate directory if something fails.
Solution: It was neither Electron nor Elementary OS but the Nvidia driver. All I had to do was disable FXAA Antialiasing in the antialiasing settings. Now everything is sharp again: Atom, GitKraken and even Steam. So, if you come across blurry fonts, follow these steps:
Open Nvidea X Server Settings
Go to X Screen 0 -> Antialiasing Settings
Remove the ...
Fonts can be downloaded and installed manually:
Download fonts from the elementary/fonts repository at GitHub. Navigate into the folders of the desired fonts.
Save the *.ttf files into ~/.fonts (you might have to make hidden files and directories visible using the shortcut Ctrl+h).
Open terminal and type sudo fc-cache -f -v to rebuild font cache
I followed the instructions provided here. This is what I did to have it working.
Created the FiraSans directory in /usr/share/fonts/truetype
$ sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/truetype/FiraSans
Moved the ttf font files to that directory and then updated the cache
$ sudo fc-cache -f -v
Initially, I did try with the OTF files and later moved to TTF files. ...
You can do many customizations using elementary-tweaks switchboard plugin. But the older repository is not maintained by the original author anymore. Fortunately it's been forked by some other devs and the source is available in Github. Here is the project link https://github.com/elementary-tweaks/elementary-tweaks
It also has a PPA. So, add the ppa and ...

Elementary Tweaks will show on system settings
The problem was that I was using googlefonts which I symlinked to my ~/.fonts directory. The link was broken when I was installing some stuff.
After cloning the repo again and creating the directory directly within the ~/.fonts folder, everything went back to normal
The thing that worked for me is
Fonts looks weird at Loki (and just in my user session!). How do I fix it?
But I got an error:
GLib-GIO-Message: 21:06:40.395: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend.
Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications.
I solved it as described here https://blog.csdn.net/juwenkailaodi/article/details/86525841]
for example, I'm using Roboto font for the login screen
I recommend Menulibre
It's simple GUI to add applications to slingshot and/or change names, icons etc.
However, if you want to keep simple. Make a .desktop entry in /usr/share/applications.
I searched on forums high and low to solve this issue. I can not remember where I found the solution, but this worked for me:
sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04
The consensus seemed to be that there is a slight problem with the Intel graphics driver in the default kernel and that switching to the generic kernel works around ...
