Which font in the Gnome Terminal if not "system fixed width font"?


Hello,

I am using Debian Lenny on my laptop and some text apears rather large. For instance, the font of the Gnome Terminal is too large, if I have "Use system fixed width font" unchecked.

Which font is the Gnome Terminal using if "Use system fixed width font" is unchecked? Where can I change it?

Thanks.

That would be a monospaced font. You can select a different one from the "Font" combo box right underneath the checkbox you refer to. My personal favourite is terminus but it may require installing xfonts-terminus first. It is a very angular font but I find it very easy to read.
