Any particular reason to favour Oracle Java over OpenJDK 8? I'm on
Ubuntu 16.04 too and not noticed a font issue with OpenJDK. Other
difference is I always use Nimbus over GTK.

Best wishes,

Neil

It looks to be using the default system font, which is some flavor of Roboto. Can't you just change the font in options?
