    Sorry haven't read all the posts in this thread with that out of the way shouldn't dconf Editor be installed by default? I've installed it, it's very useful thank you.

    It is available in the repositories, so you can type in the following command or else get it from the Ubuntu Software Centre.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
    Once you've got it go to the "org" section in the left hand margin then look for: gnome > desktop > interface > text scaling factor.

    Default value is 1.0, if you make it bigger (say 1.2 or even 1.3) everything will get bigger, and if you make it smaller (say 0.9) everything will get smaller. Don't put it at 5 straight away or everything will be unusable
