How can I change fonts for all places?


Solution:1

What you need is font substitution. Because those texts have predefined fonts for them and as long as your system can recognize Ubuntu font (which was the defined font for that notice), those will be rendered as such.

Create a file in ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d folder with name say 09-replace-ubuntu.conf (the name should end with .conf extension). The content of the file should be like this

<?xml version="1.0"?>  <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">    <fontconfig>    <match target="pattern">      <test qual="any" name="family"><string>Ubuntu</string></test>      <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="same"><string>Segoe UI</string></edit>    </match>  </fontconfig>  

What it does is it whenever the system queries for Ubuntu font and it responds with your preferred/overridden choice, here it is Segoe UI.

Here is a picture of the same notice with replaced Segoe UI font.
