aterm - how do I increase the font size?

My current setting for aterm are as follows:

aterm -transparent -shading 30 -loginShell -foreground white
Regardless of the resolution I run, the font is just a bit too small for my comfort. I'd like to be able to make the font slightly more readable. Is this something I'd do as a parameter when starting, as above, or do I need to set something elsewhere? I've looked in the man page and the closest thing I found was bigfont_key, but I can't seem to get that enabled.

Thanks for any help.

You could try something like:

aterm -fn -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-18-120-100-100-c-90-iso8859-2

Looks pretty nice. Try playing around with xfontsel. I don't really know anything about the right or convenient way to deal with fonts, though.

As digiot pointed out, use the
-fn font

To see a list of fonts run

xlsfonts | less

you can scroll through the list of fonts forward with ctrl+f and backwards with ctrl+b
