Ubuntu: Desktop and Nautilus fonts suddenly HUGE


I am running 14.04 (x64) with an nVidia card.
About a week ago, the desktop and Nautilus fonts both ballooned in size, and I have been unable to find compiz or unity settings that address this.

Anybody know what might have caused this or what I might try to reign those font sizes down to useful scale? It is worth noting that the icons also scaled up in keeping with the fonts. I can resize the icons in Nautilus, but the fonts remain crazy huge.


You can use gnome-tweak-tool to set the font sizes.

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool  

I don't know why they would change on there own however.


on my Ubuntu, the font size scaling was set to 1.6 (suddenly, from one day to another). I could change this setting after installing Unity Tweak Tool.

see How do I change fonts and adjust their size?
