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
and xterm should pick it up from then on.
