[SOLVED] Changing system font size from command line

Post by ish4269 »

Hey There

I switch between 2 displays, one has a resolution of x1080 the other x768.

I change the system font size via Menu->Preferences->Accessibility->Large-Text.

I am looking for, and would prefer, a command line solution which will change/load the cinnamon preferences, i.e. what to run/what file to edit. So I can make an alias/script.
>cinnamon-settings --help
doesn't help.

Cheers in advance
