How to set the font-size for "xterm" terminal-emulator (running "bash" shell)
 
Hi all.

I have been debugging an issue, wherein the font appears large on one system, as compared to another.

I tried to figure out the difference between the two; they both appear to be identical so far ::

1.
Code:

wmctrl -m
gives "Name: Metacity" (on both)

2.
Code:

echo $TERM
gives "xterm" (on both)

3.
Code:

echo $SHELL
gives "bash" (on both)


I fail to understand where I might be go looking in for differences.
Perhaps a place where "xterm" picks up the font (at the bottom-most level)? But I do not know where it might be.

Any ideas?
I will be grateful for a reply.


Regards,
Ajay

Cant you just edit the profile that your xterm is using?
