Question Xterm question (simple for non-newbies to answer)


I've read and re-read the entire man page for xterm, and I can't get it to stop displaying bold fonts. If I take off the --color option from my ls alias, it doesn't, but I really like colors. There should be a way to use colors non-bold right?

Also, I saw that you can change the bold font, and it says it uses the resource: "boldFonts;" where do I find this or know which fonts I can name??? I've been searching the net for hours now with no luck.

Alright, Nu-Bee.

I'll never read anything you post again.

Ever.
The man just said in his *first* post in this thread that he read the entire man page for xterm.

Dhrivnak, that's not such a newbish question. Wish I could help you, I'm not sure of it myself. Though I *haven't* read the manpage to xterm in its entirety. I never had a problem with the bold option.

Thanks Shade - especially for reading my post before replying. I'll keep looking, and if I find something, I'll post it here.

You can create ~/.Xdefaults and include

aterm*boldFont: some-non-bold-font

I think that would work.

-- Oh, and as far as which font to name, I'm not entirely sure. I should know this. The right method. But poke around in /usr/X11R6/lib/fonts and see if anything looks good?

Hmm.....thanks for pointing me in the right direction, but it didn't work. I'll mess around with it some more. Thanks again - I can see some font names at least!
