I guess that in this case, you should put your startup code for the terminals into ~/.xinitrc, where you can then specify the font to be used (man xterm, or whatever terminal you are going to use). > Also, is it > possibly to directly open x11 without opening normal cygwin first? This is how I am doing it. For this, I copied /usr/bin/X11/startxwin.bat into my autostart folder (I prefered to copy it instead of creating a link, but this is a matter of taste), and modified it. There is already one xterm to be started in startxwin.bat, so you can add/modify yours according to your taste.
