  2. Run dconf-editor

  3. For Cinnamon:

    1. Navigate into /org/cinnamon/desktop/interface/text-scaling-factor by clicking on list item
    2. Uncheck Use default value on the config window, and type the number what you want into Custom value box, such as 1.25, or others value between 0.5 and 3.

方法如下:

打开 dconf-editor,定位到:/org/cinnamon/desktop/interface/text-scaling-factor,将其修改为 1.25,立即就能看到效果,但谨慎地设置 1..2 之间的值,不要设置其他值以免无法恢复可能的错乱显示状态。
