Emacs fonts back!


Hi all,

I did the following steps on a Fedora 10 box.
Code:
echo "Emacs.font: Monospace-10" >> ~/.Xresources
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
I was trying to change my fonts for emacs. Now when I try to launch emacs I get this error:
Code:
No fonts match `Monospace-10'
How may I get back to the defaults?

The reason I did what I did is that I wanted to have anti-aliase fonts on emacs.

PS.
I am new to emacs.

thanks,

faizlo

Well you used ">>" which means it appended that string to the file - it didn't overwrite anything. You should be able to edit the .Xresources file (which I've never even heard of until now) and remove that line at the bottom.
