How to change fonts in Nemo?
« on: June 14, 2019, 02:45:48 pm »
As the title says how do I change fonts in Nemo?

I was able to change fonts everywhere else except there.

Thanks

Menu > Settings > Customize Look and Feel

On the Widget tab, which is up by default, go to the bottom right and change the font setting there. That changes the font in Nemo.

Or for the desktop

Menu > System > dconf Editor

org > nemo > desktop > font

But be careful in there.

In a nemo file manager window the font is set in

Menu > Settings > Customize Look and Feel

as scifidude79 suggests.

You're right. The font itself in Nemo will change, but it won't go bold. It's possible that's because Nemo is from the MATE desktop and LXAppearance is from LXDE. Though, it's also possible Nemo just isn't designed to use bold fonts.
