It would help a lot if you told us what terminal your are using.

Re: Font size too small on Terminal

Re: Font size too small on Terminal

Hi folks,

Tks for your advice.

I suppose it is "xterm".  I can increase font size by [Ctrl]+Rightclick

then select
tiny
medium
large
huge
etc.

I tried to install "Terminal-0.2.5.8rc2-installer.run"

# sh Terminal-0.2.5.8rc2-installer.run
missing file "vte.pc""

I don't know which package I need to install.

Tks

Re: Font size too small on Terminal

Give xterm some arguments when you start it to give it font name and size:

xterm -fa "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono" -fs 12

Note that you can't change the size of the standard font as it's a bitmap font.

You need to install the vte-devel package.
