Yes, it does effectively change the font but it still looks bad. What 
was the default font for that? I liked that one. I have no idea about 
why they changed all together systemwide.

I found out that my problem is about a problem in the recent Ubuntu. If 
X crashes(I happened to have it occasionally at that time as I was 
trying something that was crashing X) and you login, than you have to 
restart to have full functionality back, at some times. It is not the 
case anymore, I don't know why but it is fixed for now. Thanks.
