About increasing font size and firefox addon

Postby satimis » 2017-09-01 09:53

Hi all,

I have been googling around and couldn't sort out:

1) How to increase the font size on Debian top bar
2) How to add add-on on Firefox

Please help.

Thanks

If you are asking about the panel, it will be in the panel settings. Where those are are will depend on what DE or WM you're using (but you might start looking by right clicking on the panel).

Hi,

Please advise which "new tab" you referred to on Debian screen?

Tools Menu > Add-ons > dropdown next to search box > install addon from file or on left Get Addons

I have to check "Menu Bar" (right click on top menu bar) before I can see "Tools" drop-menu". But I couldn't find "Theme Font & Size Changer" under it.

Sorry I couldn't upload the screenshot here. Warning: Server Internal Error.

What are you calling the "top menu bar"? Are you referring to the window button bar or the panel for your wm / de?

I meant the top menu bar of Debian. It shows Activities on the left corner and 3 icons on the right corner for Sound, Turnoff/Reboot Debian and date in the middle etc.

Still I couldn't upload the screenshot here.

I'm not terribly familiar with the gnome de, but I think you will need to install the gnome-tweak-tool to change the panel settings. Maybe someone who uses gnome can chime in.

Hi,

Problem solved after installing the addon "Theme Font & Size Changers". Now I can increase the font size of Firefox

Thanks

The remaining problem is to increase the font size on the top menu bar of Debian 9.1.0

You're welcome.
Now, font style and size is changed from the Control Center for your desktop environment. We don't know which one you are using. You mostlt likely using one of these:
Gnome > sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool > use tweak tool to change fonts
KDE - search google
XFCE - https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings/appearance
MATE - menu > system > preferences > look & feel > appearance

I had him run inxi and it revealed he's running gnome. I suggested gnome-tweak-tool a couple posts back, but evidently he didn't read it (and everything he's asking is easily found in a search...).

Hi all,

gnome-tweak-tool already installed

$ apt-cache policy gnome-tweak-tool
Code: Select all
gnome-tweak-tool:
  Installed: 3.22.0-1
  Candidate: 3.22.0-1
  Version table:
 *** 3.22.0-1 500
        500 http://ftp.cn.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


I have another pc, say pc2, also running VirtualBox. Debian 9.1.0 with gnome desktop is running there, having the same problem. I don't know whether this problem comes from Debian 9.1.0 or from the Guest-Addition of VirtualBox. Both Debian VMs were installed on debian-live-9.1.0-amd64-gnome.iso

Several Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu16.04 VMs are running on both PCs but without problem. They are running gnome;

Ubuntu 16.04 desktop
⟫ ls /usr/bin/*session
Code: Select all
/usr/bin/byobu-select-session  /usr/bin/gnome-session
/usr/bin/dbus-run-session


Ubuntu 14.04 desktop
⟫ ls /usr/bin/*session
Code: Select all
/usr/bin/byobu-select-session  /usr/bin/gnome-session
/usr/bin/dbus-run-session



I have following 3 files upload to dropbox.com
screenshot_debian9.1.0.png
screenshot_debian_display.png
screenshot_ubuntu_display.png

Their links are here;
