To which font are you referring? The fonts used on interface elements like menus and buttons, or the fonts that are used in notebook cells? The appearance of user interface elements is governed by X resource settings. Specifically, explicitly specifying the value of the resource XMathematica*fontList: <X logical font description> in a resource file like $HOME/.Xdefaults will do the job. For more information on X resource settings and X logical font description syntax, see the book _X Window System User's Guide_ (Second Edition) by Quercia & O'Reilly <http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/v3m/>. If you are referring to the fonts used in cells, these are goverened through a mixture of global defaults and style sheets. For more information on style sheets, consult the online Mathematica documentation by pasting this expression into a notebook and evaluating it.
