How to change Geary colors & font?


I’m using Geary on pop_os 22 and I don’t seem to be able to change the dark mode into something where I could actually read what it says in the emails. Can I turn off the dark mode?

Also asking how to increase the font size.

Thanks again.

Install gnome-tweaks. You can change both of these things in that app.

Dark theme setting (for legacy apps e.g. Geary) is under “Appearance → Themes → Legacy Applications” whereas font setting is under “Fonts → Interface Text”.

Alternatively, you can use the gsettings command,

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme Adwaita
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface.font-name "Cantarell 11" 
# Replace Cantarell with the font you want to use and 11 with the size you want to use.

Thank you. I found the font settings and it did basically what I wanted to: increased the font size and readability. I still could not turn off Geary’s dark mode. I guess that is how it is colored all the time? All other applications switched to Adwaita, but Geary still looks the same.

rm ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
