Default Font size of the menus and dialogs

I have issues with my laptop, which has a full HD video card, but a 15" screen, so the fonts in the menu are way too small for me. Is there a way to increase the size of the fonts in the menus. I found the way to change font sizes of various GUI elements (tracks, toolbars...), but not the menus. I know that the solution would be to buy a biiiig screen, but if someone has any clues, welcome !

In the install folder for Reaper for Linux, there will be a file named "libSwell.colortheme". Copy this file into the Reaper "resource folder". To find the resource folder (since it can be installed to different locations depending on the OS, drive structure, users, etc.) do the following:

Start Reaper. Go to the main menu at the top. Options > Show REAPER resource path in explorer/finder.

That's where to copy the libSwell.colortheme file.

Edit the file in a text editor to change the elements you wish.
