Hi Daemons,
a little question:

I open a shell and invoke:
#xmessage 'hello world'
- it opens the window, but a rather tiny font.

So I invoke:
#xmessage -fn -*-fixed-*-*-*-*-20-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-* 'hello world'
- the same appears in the fontsize I like.

Now the question:
Can I set the bigger font somewhere, so that i.e. xmessage appears always in the preset, bigger font without typing the whole -fn -*-*.... string in? Somewhere in .xinitrc?
Checked the man pages, but its a science to find a solution there.

I've seen .Xdefaults files that setup resources for apps such as xcalc and xmessage.

Have a look at http://dotfiles.org/~n0nsense/.Xdefaults.
