xterm, I would like to increase the default font size to the
font5/Font5/"Large" option of the default VTFont. I've managed to do this manually with my mouse via the control menu so far, which is brilliant, but it can become quite a burden whenever I open a new xterm window. Hence, I would like to achieve the same by setting it as my default in my
.Xresources file, so that every new xterm window opens in the "Large" font size by default instead of using the control menu.
Reading the man page and doing some further research online, I tried, in separate attempts:
xterm*font: *-fixed-*-*-*-18-* and
xterm*faceSize: 12.0 to achieve a similar outcome. Whilst the first try didn't work at all, in the latter two, the font is indeed increased but rather blurred when compared with what I can achieve through the control menu option. Surely, there must be a way!
- How can I find the default (font) resource XTerm is using?
- Configure unreadable, tiny, small, ..., huge Xterm fonts
Edit: I have found a second way of increasing, decreasing and resetting the size of the default VTFont via
xterm*VT100.Translations: #override \ Ctrl <Key> minus: smaller-vt-font() \n\ Ctrl <Key> plus: larger-vt-font() \n\ Ctrl <Key> 0: set-vt-font(d)
However, this method still requires manual handling every time I open a new xterm window. The search continues . . .
