AFAIK, there used to be a kpager app.  I don't see it in 4.7 at least, 
and I'm wondering what you're referring to as the pager?  Maybe the 
plasmoid (aka desktop/panel widget), available to be added to the desktop 
or panel, which shows a little rectangle representing each desktop?  Or 
perhaps the display when you switch the desktops themselves?  Or the 
desktop grid, since that's sort of a pager, I guess?

Assuming it's the plasmoid, since that's actually /called/ "pager"... I'm 
guessing its font is going to be that of plasma itself, either controlled 
by the desktop theme or set in kde settings, common..., application 
appearance, fonts.

Actually, I just tried it, and it appears to be the settings for "Small" 
font, in kde settings... fonts, as mentioned above.  FWIW, I have it set 
to sans serif, 10, here.  Seems to work on the pager plasmoid I just 
setup for testing (I don't normally have one running).

Also, in pager settings, general, be sure desktop name is set (that may 
be what you referred to above), and that there ARE names assigned under 
virtual desktops, desktops.
