More font sizes

Hi there,

I' would like to ask: Is there a way to have more sizes for the fonts? At least for fixed space fonts.

I've a 1400x1050 screen and never find the "perfect" fixed font for terminal (in where, as a Linux user, I spend most of the time ). For instance, for Courier, they are either too small (ptSz=140) or too big (ptSz=180). The opcion ptSz=160 exist, but is never available...

Any ideas about this?

Thank you in advance!!

look at your X configuration, in the fonts section, do any lines end in ":unscaled" or similar?

and, there probably are other font sizes, if you search, but are you sure you have to use fixed fonts?
