Change Font and Icon Sizes in Ubuntu
It seemed that Ubuntu’s icons have always been larger than the icons are on Windows. This may be trivial for some people, but I wanted my desktop and nautilus icons to be a bit smaller. Changing the icon sizes as well as the font size is fairly easy. These steps are based on Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10.
Change the Icon Sizes
- Open a Nautilus window. The easiest way to do that is by clicking on Places -> Home Folder from your main Gnome menu.
- Click on Edit -> Preferences in that Nautilus window.
- Adjust the Icon View Defaults percentage accordingly.
Change the Font Sizes
This will change the font sizes on Gnome globally.
- Click on System -> Preferences -> Appearance from your Gnome menu.
- Click on the fonts tab.
- Click on the Details… button.
- Change the value in the Resolution box.
