  • If gedit has missing plugins, make sure you have the gedit-plugins installed.

    sudo apt-get install gedit-plugins

    After that, (you probably need to restart gedit) you will have a plugin called "Text Size".
    Make sure the plugin is enabled, and you will be able to "zoom" (i.e. change font size) using Ctrl + Mouse Wheel.
