I am working on RedHat RHEL5. I want to change the font in GVIM.
The only font format that my GVIM accepts is
It refuses to use
Courier\ New or
The default font is ugly and I wanted to change it to something prettier, like
monospace font that I use in my terminal, but
xfontsel does not show his font.
set guifont=* neither works.
My questions are:
How to "convince" GVIM to accept other system fonts
Or, how to install additional fonts so they can be delivered to GVIM in
-*-*-*-Morse code format
:set guifont=* gives error:
Font "*" is not fixed-width Invalid font(s): guifont=*
To make the font selectable with
xfontsel, additionally I had to use this trick:
xset fp+ ~/.fonts/ # maybe unnecessary xset fp rehash fc-cache
