We need to find a way to find the gnome font sizes and update the css accordingly

summary: - System font preferences are ignored in Ubuntu Software Center "Get Free
- Software" section
+ Font sizes are hardcoded in CSS

Confirming, the Get Free Software section stays at the same size for the icon text and the Categories heading.

It looks like the branch and the merge request are unrelated with this bug report. Wrong linking?

Note for whoever wants to tackle this issue: the gnome font settings are stored in the following gconf keys:

Application font: /desktop/gnome/interface/font_name
Document font: /desktop/gnome/interface/document_font_name
Desktop font: /apps/nautilus/preferences/desktop_font

Retrieving those values is as simple as:

    import gconf

A complete patch should monitor those values to refresh the templates in Software Center upon changes.
