My preferred TTF fixed-width font is LetterGothic Line (letgothl.ttf), but it only looks good in Windows. Under X there is too much horizontal space between the letters for some reason. 2nd choice is Vera Bitstream Mono, which has very distinct 1/l 0/O pairs, but has thinner vertical stems, so it gets washed-out at small sizes. If you prefer bitmap fonts, Terminus (x11-fonts/terminus-font) is pretty good. I use the bold flavor as my xterm font. The version in ports has almost identical o and a, though. I need to send in a PR to have the port updated to the current one. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
