In Debian on Macbook Pro 5.2 I mentioned using the
resource to get rid of the nasty fonts, and then could not find the TTF fonts in
xlsfonts (despite using my previous post about xorg font
hell), and began to get very frustrated.
Apparently, the frustration was not necessary. Apparently, while I have spent my time in OS X land, the Linux universe was moving further and further from having X provide the fonts, instead using fontconfig and other tools. Also xterm has a method to access ttf fonts separate from the normal X fonts.
The following (in combination with a recent article on the top 10 programming fonts) fixed me up.
xterm*faceName: DejaVu Sans Mono xterm*faceSize: 8
I just plopped it in my
.Xresources file, removed the
line, merged the resources using
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources, and
relaunched my xterms.
Now, why is FireFox giving me fits?
