I'm using ubuntu 9.04. I use emacs for almost everything. I used emacs that I compiled from the source on my laptop. I liked the default font that came with it. So I never cared about the font. For some reasons I have to switch to another laptop where emacs is installed from the package. I donot want to go through compiling the source again.
I would like to know what is name of the default font in emacs. I donot like the default font that comes with the ubuntu package.
The font I'm talking about is the font that is usually found in most emacs written documents. Similar to this webpage
(web browsers might render this differently) . And also this webpage
describing font without knowing the name is difficult
. The second link
gives a better idea. (Hopefully :-))
Also I read about cse-huji-default-font but M-x describe-variable says it can not find the variable. (Is this related to my problem??)
So please let me know what the default font of emacs is how to set it.
