Just compile a minimal document to PDF and check the fonts in the document properties in your PDF viewer.


    Hello World 

My viewer tell me that it's Computer Modern (CM) sans serif at 10pt size.

Oops! Dunno how easy that's going to be to get into OO... – Brent.Longborough Nov 13 '10 at 16:31
@Brent: Should be quite easy. Just download them here or here in otf (or ttf) format and install on your system like any other font. – Caramdir Nov 13 '10 at 16:41
@Caramdir: Oh! I haven't used CM for some time now; I only remember using it "the old-fashioned way" via metafont. – Brent.Longborough Nov 13 '10 at 17:00
This question is old so I don't know if things have changed, but it seams that beamer default font is Latin Modern Sans. – Evangelos Bempelis Feb 10 '15 at 14:58
