To change your gconf values, use rather a tool like gconftool-2 or gconf-editor.
$ gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/interface/font_name --type String "Sans 10"
or similar to change the current font.
/desktop/gnome/interface/monospace_font_name are also valid keys.
You may also set this in the .gtkrc-2.0 file
