Is it possible to change the fonts on the Tab ?

I have had a few android devices and in some you could do it in Sound/Display under settings .

Can you do it using Font Changer in the market ?

You can also try to flash a font using Clockworkmod (install zip form SD)...
You can find over 200 flashable fonts here on XDA.
(Thread includes screen shots for most fonts!)

I haven't tried this myself, but I did download and install the Ubuntu font manually.
(Unzipping and copying the font files to /system/font and setting the right permissions using root explorer. Reboot...)

The Ubuntu font looks absolutely stunning!
Just so much better than the original DroidSans!

Thanks for the link.

Tried it through recovery and for some reason it caused the tab to keep bootlooping.

Had to re-install :P

Think i should have stuck with Absolute. Oh the joys of Android flashing. We love it :D

Sorry to hear you had to flash all over...
Guess I was right by doing it manually...

The updates would need slight changes in order to flash them on our device, but all they do is swap the default sans font .ttf file for whatever it is you want :P

Use Root explorer to long-click the font files and choose permissios...
If you do this on an existing font file first you know what permissions to set the changed files...
I believe it's read for all 3 and write for users only...

Thanks to this thread I found absolute system and change to the Ubuntu font with ease ;)

left me feeling kind of lazy though as I know my way around android pretty damn well and all these one click apps take some of the "fun" away from modding :)

Yeah, you're right!
Customizing is not about getting the looks and performance right...
Customizing is about customizing! :)

How I customize my Android devices:
1. Flash a custom ROM
2. Install my favorite apps and widgets
3. Configure all installed apps
4. Add and configure widgets
5. Back up everything!
6. Install another custom ROM
7. Install my favorite apps and widgets again
8. Configure all installed apps again
9. Add and configure widgets again
10. Back up everything again!
11. Delete the old backup
12. Go back to step 6
:D
