Re: xterm font size

You can change the fontsize in /etc/X11/Xresourses/xterm (if you are the only
user). Mine is:

~$ cat /etc/X11/Xresources/xterm 
XTerm*font: -*-terminus-medium-*-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-cp1251
XTerm*background: black
XTerm*foreground: gray
XTerm*scrollTtyOutput: no
XTerm*scrollKey: yes

I'm a gambler
And I'm a runner.
But you knew it
when you laid down.
I'm a picture
of ugly stories.
I'm a killer and I'm a clown.
