Thanks; bizarrely, the family name, which as you say was wrong, was
copied from a working setting for urxvt; I guess it must somehow make
allowances for spaces; what you suggested:

> emacs.font: DejaVu Sans Mono:pixelsize=14

seems to work fine.

I don't have a fonts.config file. To what does it belong? My Ubuntu
system seems to use fontconfig, and "monospace" seems to be used as
DejaVu Sans Mono's default family, though whether that means the
default monospace font is DejaVu Sans Mono, I don't know; certainly
under GNOME I have configured DejaVu Sans Mono as the default
monospaced font in its font preferences.

But of course that doesn't work, as height is dpi-dependent, which is
where I came in: trying to get a dpi-independent, i.e. pixel-based
setting (happens to work better for me across different machines, as I
can't easily seem to get per-machine settings any other way, given
that my Emacs configuration files are synchronised between my
machines, so that my environment is kept up to date on all of them).
