Stupid Ubuntu Tricks: Make Gnome Shell Use the Ubuntu font

July 5, 2017

If you are running Ubuntu GNOME, but like/miss/prefer different fonts to the ones used by the shell, you can customize Gnome Shell's font like this:

  • Create a text file containing css for the font you want, in a directory named whatever you want the theme to be named, i.e. for a theme called FOO, create .themes/FOO/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css
  • Put this in there, replacing the font name with whatever font you want:

@import url("resource:///org/gnome/theme/gnome-shell.css");

stage {

font-family: "Ubuntu";

  • Save the file.
  • Open up Tweak Tool, and pick your newly-created theme from the list of shell themes.
  • Profit.
