[Solved] What has made my cinnamon text go so tiny?

Postby Bisto on Fri Apr 19, 2013 2:23 pm

Hope someone knows the answer, this is driving me up the wall!
The font in my menu and notifications is really small. The text in notifications especially used to be HUGE and easily legible. Now it's really small.
I want to make it bigger so I can stop squinting - any ideas how people??
Thanks! :)

Hello.

There are many ask and answer for this before,but one more.

Go to MENU/SETTINGS/CINNAMON SETTINGS/LETTERS and set text size.Too big size can cause all text not seeing.There are + and - to set it and you can see size on window you set it.

I hope this was what you was searching.

Thanks for your reply,
I take it you mean 'fonts' as I don't have a letter menu?
That changes everything other than my notifications and menu fonts :(

Still on the hunt. Some themes appear to make it slightly bigger, but not by much

Hello, If you want text and icons on panel biger go to MENU/SETTINGS/CINNAMON SETTINGS/PANEL/mark x to USE OWN PANEL SIZE and ALLOW CINNAMON SET SIZE OF TEXT AND ICONS SIZE/use + to biger and - to smaller.
When you close size changed.

Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that also did not work! :(

I found a solution, a bit long winded but it has worked:
I reset cinnamon setting, and copied all the cinnamon themes from an LM14 install to /home/[user]/.themes
I find that either "Glass Mint" theme or "Minty" have the largest fonts.

I hope that for the next release of cinnamon, the devs implement a way to manually adjust or override font size for the menu and the notifications!
