OS'es don't have a font style. Only applications use fonts. In Linux, such applications are, for example, the shell, the desktop (like Gnome or KDE) and LibreOffice writer (for the documents you write). So please tell more about what you want.

I had to delete your mention of a certain font on a certain site.

The font setting varies with each application. There is no setting in any Linux version I know of that controls what font style is default for LibreOffice writer and most other apps.

Kees also touched on the desktop such as Gnome or KDE doesn't take it's font settings from Linux. The desktop system would have its own controls so you would have to be very specific about which apps and desktop GUI system you are using to find a guide. Or you could google as need be such as "How do I change the system font for Gnome?"
