file manager text size

Postby argon99 on Wed Jan 09, 2013 9:58 pm

I would like to make the text under the icons and files in file manager bigger. I can make the icons bigger but that is not what I want. I am using mint for a home theater and I need to be able to read the file names from across the room. I also have a Panasonic Viera TV for the monitor. Everything works fine except I can't read the file names. So I use VNC and the login with my laptop but this is far from a satisfactory solution. So does anybody know were I can increase the font size?? TIA

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Please share which file manager you are using. If you don't know, it's usually also shown in the Help > About menu.

If you are using Mint LXDE, then your file manager is likely pcmanfm, whose configuration, including font size, can be edited in ~/.config/pcmanfm/LXDE/pcmanfm.conf .

Thank you for your help. I am using Thunar 1.4.0 for the file manager. I read through the DOCS on XFCE about Thunar and found nothing about fonts at all. I am installing some other file managers to see what I can get to work.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
