How to fix user interface font in Ubuntu?

Hi!

I need to change user interface (UI) font (menus, buttons...) in Libreoffice software to conform all other apps which uses system font. I try to use this https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Font-FAQ#How_can_I_change_OpenOffice.org_2.27s_user_interface_font.3F (and some others which essentially same) but it is not work. My font, Terminus, not appear in LibreOffice's list of fonts for substitution. Typing it manually not work (i.e. UI font still not Terminus). Even system-wide font substitution via 'font-manager' not work (while work everywhere except Libreoffice software). Also i not see how to set UI font size when it is not system font. Change 'use system font' checkbox not work (not changes anything). There is many questions about this problem in various places, but still no solution.

How i can fix Libreoffice to make it not think that it is smarter than user? I can use other than Terminus font, but it should be definetely bitmap font, not vector/TTF. Thank you so much!

P.S. Also font in start screen labels (when you just start 'libreoffice') wrong / not system.

[code]$ libreoffice --version LibreOffice 3.5 $ cat /etc/lsb-release DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04 DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS"[/code]
