    It depends if you use pt or px (pixels)

    Pixels should be *very* close in size, maybe a pixel or 2 off at most.

    That was the first thing I noticed. Not sure how to get all fonts up a size.

    Gnome uses a screen resolution of 96 dpi by default, so fonts looks smaller. There is an entry in Gnome controls for customizing a look of fonts.
