How to change the default KOMA-Script font that is used for chapter/section headings etc. to the Computer Modern font that is used in text body?

Use \setkomafont or \addtokomafont. See section 3.6 of the KOMA-Script manual for details.


% Variant A: Default plus roman (i.e., still bold)

% Variant B: Ecactly as in the text body (i.e., not bold)
% \setkomafont{disposition}{\normalfont}




Some text.

    @umar: The disposition element controls all sectioning levels (including \chapter). See my updated example.

As was suggested here, there is also an option that can be set that also modifies the size of the headings slightly to match that of the standard classes.
