Gnome-shell: font top panel too big (Solved)

Postby panzer » Fri Dec 21, 2012 7:41 pm

Hi,

I prefer to use pure gnome-shell so I installed it via synaptic. The problem I have is the font in the top panel is a little bit too big.
How can I adjust it? I'm using linuxmint 14.
Thanks!

Try to install the cantarell font, that's the font gnome-shell uses and if you don't have it installed, it falls back to a very big and chunky font (Sans).

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install fonts-cantarell

... and restart gnome-shell
