How do I override the font size of window menu items?

Postby kkruecke » Fri Jul 05, 2013 12:46 pm

I am running LM 14/Cinnamon with the Cinnamon theme. The font size of the Window menu items for some applications--Gimp, Banshee, LibreOffice Writer, on so on--is really tiny, and I am on a laptop already. I can't figure out how to increase it.

I can go to Preference->Cinnamon Settings->Fonts and change the Default Font. This does increase the menu font size for some programs, like Nemo and Firefox, but not all programs. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi kkruecke,

You could try this - it worked for me on LM14 Cinnamon:

Desktop: C2D E6400 / Asus P5LD2SE / 2GB ram / Asus GeForce 210 / 320GB (WinXP) & 1TB (Mint - various)
Laptop: Asus A53E-SX1455V - i5 2450M / 4GB ram / Intel HD 3000 / 500GB (Win7/Mint 17.3 Cinnamon)

Thanks caribriz! I added

Code: Select all

style "schrift"
{
font_name = "Ubuntu 13"
}
widget_class "*" style "schrift"
gtk-font-name = "Ubuntu 13"


to ~/.gtkrc.mine, which I created, and created the file ~/.gtkrc-2.0, adding to it the line:

Code: Select all

include '/home/kurt/.gtkrc.mine'


And that worked! It changed the window menu font for all the non-cinnamon applications.
