How to increase font size ?

Post by humpty » Mon Apr 29, 2013 4:03 am

Lubuntu 12.04.
Font is a bit small for my eyes. Does anyone know of a way to change the font size?
The only font I've been able to change is the window title via openbox.

edit: v3.0.8

As far as I know, font size is controlled by your theme. Look at your DE's "look and appearance" dialog it should enable you to increase the font size size for all applications.

Sorry for resurrecting such an old topic but it was the closest to the issue I could find and related to sledgehammer_999's reply.

I'm using qBittorrent 4.2.0 alpha in Linux Mint 19.2 beta Cinnamon x64.
Contrary to OP's request I want to decrease font size in the application.
Apparently Cinnamon cannot control all fonts in this Qt5 GUI. Some of them do obey but others not.
Screenshot shows which dialogs obey (color blue) and which do not  (color red).

In previous versions of qBittorrent - namely 4.0.3 and 4.1.6 - none of the blue dialogs obeyed, so clearly there's an improvement in 4.2.0 alpha.
Please look into this issue and share the findings so that we could have a fully working release version of qBittorrent by the time Mint 19.2 goes stable.
Thank you.
