After a lot of mucking around Xterm, poring through reams of webpages I have thrown in the towel and realized that this isn't something I can figure out on my own.
TrueType vs Bitmap
Is the option
xterm*fontused to specify only bitmap fonts and is
*faceNameused only for TrueType fonts?
I'm using the commands
fc-listto find out the Bitmap and TrueType fonts that are installed. Is this correct?
I want to set the XTerm font to Ubuntu Mono. This is the output of
fc-list | grep -i ubuntu
Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=RegularForPowerline Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Bold Italic Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=BoldForPowerline Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=ItalicForPowerline
and I added
XTerm*faceName: Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=RegularForPowerline
~/.Xresources and ran
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
xrdb -query all shows that
*faceName is set to
Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=RegularForPowerline
However, this doesn't work. What am I missing/screwing up here?
