I use the following in my .emacs to set my default font to Ubuntu Mono:
(set-face-attribute 'default nil :font "Ubuntu Mono")
However, the defauly font size is too tiny for me. In my menubar I see Options->Set Default Font..., but the changes I make there does not propogate to my next session.
Should I be setting something in .emacs to set default font size? (I like it to be 24)
