[Bug 2019906] Re: 23.04 : condensed fonts can't be used for interface and title bar


It may be related to how Ubuntu fonts are symlinked in 23.04.

Ubuntu-C.ttf leads to a ( variable, I guess ) font named

The latter may not correctly include condensed variant ?

  23.04 : condensed fonts can't be used for interface and title bar

Bug description:

  fresh lunar lobster installation here,

  from legacy iso image ( ubiquity installer. )

  As I usually do, I tried to change the font for interface, as I much
  prefer « condensed » fonts rather than large, round, regular ones.

  In 20.04 or 22.04 or 22.10 gnome-tweaks allowed to do that.

  Today in 23.04, it only changes font in gnome-shell ( top panel,
  activities and app's views ) but not in other app's, not in the whole
  interface as it used to do.

  In dconf-editor I did not find entries regarding « global » interface

  Is this intended behavior ?

  Ability to change font type and size is also a matter of
