December 17, 2017 at 2:49 am #35873 Anonymous Answer Here’s a pretty good (if dated) description of display fonts in Ubuntu. Quoting from that section: The Ubuntu GNOME desktop allows fonts to be specified for a number of different display categories: Application font – The font used to display text in application windows. This also changes the font used to display items such as the menus in the desktop panel. Document font – Specifies the font that is to be used when displaying document text in an application. Desktop font – The font used to display text under the icons on the desktop (such as folder names). Window title font – The font used on the text in window titles. Fixed width font – Specifies the font to be used when the system needs to display fixed width font. A prime example of this is the text that is rendered in a Terminal window. In terms of font selection options, fonts may be specified by type (Utopia, Serif, Monospace etc), style (Regular, Bold, Italic) and size (10pt, 11pt etc).
