    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).
