When I run
rxvt& (Rxvt v2.7.10 - released: 26 MARCH 2003) [which
seems old, but is the version that ships with Fedora Core 24], I get
an rxvt window with a font I find ugly.
When I do
rxvt -font x however, I get the error message
load font "x", but then get an rxvt window with a slightly smaller
font that I really like.
What unholy magic is this and how can I do the same thing without getting an error?
I do have rxvt mentioned in some of my .x* files, but nothing that mentions fonts:
- In .Xdefaults, I have:
rxvt*background: grey rxvt*foreground: black rxvt*saveLines: 100 rxvt*geometry: 80x53
- In .Xresources, I have:
rxvt*background: grey rxvt*foreground: black rxvt*saveLines: 60
- In .fvwm2rc, I have:
Style "rxvt" Icon term.xpm, SloppyFocus, IconBox -70 1 -1 -140 Style "rxvt" MWMBorder, MWMButtons
This is the file I suspect the most, but I don't see anything mentioning font.
NOTE: this has been bugging me for the last 20 years.
