Re: xterm font size

I just got a new T60p wide screen (1680x1050) running X Window System

I'm using icewm as my window manager.

The xterm fonts are nice, but too small.  I can use xfontsel to browse
fonts, but I can't seem to find the one xterm is using (so that I
might make it bigger).  Is there a way to tell what font my xterm is

My DPI setting is correct so shouldn't I be able to pick a font by
point size and have it be the correct size?

Plenty to pick from...

$ DISPLAY=:0.0 xlsfonts | wc -l

I believe it's fixed, but try something like this:

xterm -fn -*-fixed-medium-*-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

where 14 is your size. once you find one you can create ~/.Xresources with this:
xterm*font: -*-fixed-medium-*-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

and xterm should pick it up from then on.
