View Full Version : [all variants] Who controls the appearance of windows and fonts?

Is it the X window system, the Desktop Environment, the window manager, or the specific application itself? I am asking this because I'd trying to give up the Desktop Environment and use a standalone window manager such as dwm, but don't know how to set the fonts without using such things as 'gnome-appearance-properties'.

You can set the fonts for each of those separately. System > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts gives you five separate font setting categories.
