Dear users
i am using R2012b in a Linux machine and i have problems changing the font size of texts in plots (title, axis, labels etc...). Whatever size i define, the default size is being plotted. A part of the code is given below where i define those:
... xlabel('Months','FontSize',20); unit=unitsSurf(spc,:); unit=strcat(unit); ylabel([nameObs,' (',unit,')'],'FontSize',20); ....
anyone has faced this problem before?
thanks in advance

title(['\fontsize{20} Look Big' char(10) ...
'\fontsize{10} Look small' char(10) ...
'\fontsize{20} Mixed_{\fontsize{8} underscore}'],'interpreter','tex')
A variant thereof should work.

Have you read the linked question and answers? There is no MATLAB code that will fix your problem. There is most likely something wrong with your Linux install. MATLAB needs fonts from the X11 packages in order to display the font and change the font size. It is not clear to me if the packages need to be on the X server or X client and how they interact. Are you working directly on the cluster or are you using ssh with X forwarding or some sort of X for MS windows?
