A frontend to change the fonts of xterm/mrxvt using the ~/.fonts folder ?


I have download lot of ttf and I would like to apply them to my mrxvt. Like matrix fonts for instance... Is it possible?

Those Old fonts of PC/M machine oldies are also cute for coding

Well, for xterm and urxvt it is.

Put your stuff into your .Xdefaults or call it via command line:

xterm -fs 10 -fa YourFavoriteFont


urxvt -fn xft:YourFavoriteFont:size=12:antialias=true

I've never used mrxvt, so no clue.
