Screenshot showing small font size on UI

Libreoffice 5.1.2 with the GTK3 UI has a smaller font size than it should on almost all UI elements. This is temporarily fixed by changing the GTK theme and changing it back again, but restarting makes the font small again.

I'm attaching two screenshots, the first one shows Libreoffice with small font size on the UI and the second one shows Libreoffice with the correct font size on the UI.

This works for me on gnome and libreoffice 5.2.
I mentioned the desktop because it is possible gtk+ behaves differently under different desktops (gnome-settings-daemon has its own font gsettings).
Comment 4 ale.carrazzoni 2016-10-14 00:16:21 UTC
I'm using Xfce. Firefox also has the same issue, so I suspect the cause is how they fake the Gtk+ theme.
Comment 5 Caolán McNamara 2016-10-18 11:29:11 UTC
Is this still a problem ? If it is, what is the exact arch linux release and is it the default theme in an xfce session ?
Comment 6 ale.carrazzoni 2016-10-18 22:49:46 UTC
I'm using debian sid and the theme I'm using is Zukitre, but the font is Roboto. It's not the default theme.
