Sorry. should have been: $ xrdb -load ~/.Xdefaults > > This command did not give any output, it held there and nothing happened. > I have to Ctrl+C to stop it. > > > > > The size of the font can be varied by changing the 16 in that line. > > > > $ xlsfonts | less > > This did not give the output of "bitstream vera sans mono". Does the dir /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/bitstream-vera/ exist? If not you have to install: x11-fonts/bitstream-vera and follow the instructions to change your xorg.conf and then restart X. If it exists, you have to add the dir to xorg.conf like so: FontPath "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/bitstream-vera/" under the "Files" section. Restart X. X should read ~/.Xdefaults on start up & your font will be used for aterm. xlsfonts should also now list the bitstream vera fonts.
