In response to the font size ques, I run aterm with:
-fg white -bg black -fn 10x20
The font being used is :
The plain .pcf fonts should work, ex. 9x15.pcf 10x20.pcf etc.
So if you want to change fonts thats where to look. There used to be more pcf terminal fonts loose on the net
cant find alot lately though. Any one have links?
