    Is there a way to set font size in unity?

    All prev. Ubuntus had a dialog for setting font size but I don't see one in Unity. Am I missing something or what?
    Cheers, Mike

    You have to use "gnome-tweak-tool" or "dconf-editor" to tune font settings.
    Anyway is not related to Unity but to Gnome3 stack.

    Yes, simply right click the desktop and you get a menu. Click 'Change Desktop Background' and then click 'Fonts'. There, you are home.

    Welcome to Gnome3. No font prefs by default

    You should have a special gnome3.

    That option is no more present like it was in gnome2.

    Are we not talking about Unity, not Gnome3?

    We are talking about Unity with Gnome3 (unity in 11.10 is gnome3 based).

    I believe you are referring to Gnome Shell; the fact is that Gnome3 != Gnome Shell.

    Gnome Shell is a shell for Gnome3, like Unity.

    We're talking Unity on OO which is quite broken right now a lot of functionality has not been brought to light yet.

    Unity is a shell which sits on top of Gnome, be it gnome 2 in Natty and gnome 3 in Oneiric.
    Gnome Shell is a shell which sit on top of gnome 3. whole different thing.

    Unity on top of gnome 3 is not as complete as it was in Natty. The transition to gnome 3 is not complete in Oneiric yet.

    I'm sure others could explain it better, but that is my take.

    Mmmm - I just tap the meta key, start typing 'appearance' and there is the application.
    PC

    To get a terminal command to put its output into a file use this format
    {terminal command} > {filename}
