RE: RE: shell properties

I tried to change the font size with the option -fs after the xterm
command however xterm did not recognize that option even though it
appeared in man xterm. I am guessing that it was just not compiled
into the cygwin version of xterm. Is there any other way to accomplish
this. I could just set the -fn option which stands for font name
and use a font that has a large standard size but someone would need
to explain to me how to set that up!

Thanks.

 when I do a startx, I get a new window shell with properties different
 from the one on which I typed startx. The problem is I want to change
 the font size on this new window and I do not know how. 

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.
