How to change font size in filemanager
Posted 09 April 2017 - 02:30 PM
Can someone tell me how to change these?

The easiest way if you use the pcmanfm file manager is to install lxappearance from synaptic or from the command line with...
sudo apt-get install lxappearance
It will show up in your menu as customize look and feel. In the very first tab is a drop down to change font size.
Hope this helps.

I tried this method some days ago waiting anybody else will bring another solution. No, lxappearance does not help. The font size will be applied to GTK menus but no icon or file names. Maybe GTK css style needs to be changed. Not my priority now, but if time permits, I can look at it...

In /home/user/.config/pcmanfm/ you can find a configuration file. The one existing in /default is auto-rebuild after every start but you can create a personal config file in an other dir. In the launcher for pcmanfm you have to add an option pointing to your config. See the manpage for pcmanfm.
You will need a line like: font=Ubuntu 16 (not sure though).
I'm also not sure this works for the window or only for the dektop option. Have not tested it.

Ah, yes, you are right. It works indeed. When I just pressed "apply" button, it changed just menu font size. After restarting PCmanFM, filenames are changed as well. Thanx for info. One learns the whole life
PS: Thunar FM changes all settings just after "apply" button...

As I am not sure you have places installed type in terminology:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install places-moksha
Then go to the module section and under the Files tab load the places module.
Now the places item should appear in the menu.
But I you want to have a places gadget on the screen with your partitions, USB and other devices (also with free/occupied capacity), you need to go to the gadget section and add places gadget on the screen.
PS: Proper package name is places-moksha and not moksha-places. Maybe that was the reason you did not succeed
