Change fonts in NAUTILUS without affecting other apps/desktop....?


Hi all, again.

I have been doing some customisations, and so far, I have my desktop looking pretty sweet.

I am having one problem though; In changing the Applications font in Appearance preferences, it changes the font used in Nautilus, which i do not want, as the font I am using does not have capitals. I only want the font on my panel Menus and/or Desktop, but not in Nautilus.

So what I want to know is this: can I set the font individually for Nautilus (or any app, for that matter)? If not, can I set the Applications font to the one I want for Nautilus, and then set an individual font for my panel Menu headings/Menus?

As usual, any assistance and input would be gratefully appreciated!!!

Thank you

run gconf Applications->System Tools->Configuration Editor
go to apps->nautilus->preferences and look for the desktop_font entry change this to something else and see if that is what you want
