xterm font in xfree86 3.2
Has the font used by xterm changed in the new xfree 3.2 release?
I upgraded to 3.2 from bo the day before yesterday and have found that
the nice solid font which xterm used to use has been replaced by a thin,
spidery font which is only readable in "Huge" mode on my screen.
I have the following in my ~/.Xdefaults file:
white text on a blue background is a lot less painful on the eyes
after 10 or more hours at the computer (high contrast, low glare).
Unfortunately, this makes it even worse. It seems as if they new xterm
font only works when it's black text on a white background (fair
contrast, lots of glare, slightly too small but readable at "Medium"
setting and above)
The fonts section of my /etc/X11/XF86Config looks like this:
I've tried swapping the order of the 75dpi and 100dpi font lines, but
that doesn't change the xterm font (it does change the font size used by
fvwm-95 in the taskbar and popup menus).
Anyone got any clues as to how i can fix this?
pointers to info on how fonts work in X would be especially
appreciated...X fonts seem like a black art to me..haven't had the time
(or until now the inclination :-) to research it at all.
