There are four things you can do:
- Unity Tweak Tool
- Settings -> Screen Display
- Adjust font size application by application
- Adjust DPI using
Unity Tweak Tool
Install Unity Tweak Tool using:
sudo apt install unity-tweak-tool
Then open Dash using Alt+F2 and type “Unity”. The Unity Tweak Tool icon will appear and click on it.
From the Tweak Tool window select
Fonts. This screen will appear:
Adjust the scaling factor to fit your preferences.
Settings -> Screen Display
Click on the Launchers gear icon for
System Settings. From the panel select
Screen Display. Adjust the screen scaling for Menus and Title Bars as shown below to a factor that suits your preferences:
Adjust font size application by application
In most applications you can change the font size. For example, with scaling up some fonts may appear to large. In Chrome, Nautilus and Terminal you can set the default font to a smaller size.
Adjust DPI using
Some applications, for example
Kid3 ignore High DPI scaling in Ubuntu and insist on using a tiny font. For applications such as these an
xrandr command can be issued at the terminal before invoking the application:
xrandr --dpi 144
Change 144 to any number which is a multiple of 16 for best results, ie: 96, 128, 144, etc.
