Default font in X



Do you know what is the default font in X? And how to change that font. I mixed it up at the end of the installation process, and now, I cannot get it back to the default font.

Thanks.

In my distro (FC2) is is "latarcyrheb-sun16". That came up under "setting default X font" during boot.

To give better responces to your questions, you should put your distro and your (general) location in your cp (see top of page > "user cp") ... this is strongly encouraged.

(Yes I know you posted to "slackware" this time - bit it really helps, take it from soneone who's been around a while )

i wasn't aware that X had a default font...

different DE/WMs have settings for this, but X itself?

Thanks, Simon. I used Slackware 10.1 and 10.0 One is for using and the other is for learning (meaning it can be broken)

kodon: I know what you mean - but you have to configure it with something.

trainee: that's all very well, but you still havn't edited your cp ... did that font work for you?

I still don't know how to change that font. I remembered while I installed, it gave me a command to do the change. But I did not write it down.

i don't recall setting a default font for X during the installation of slackware.
i do remember setting the vga console default font, which would be 'setfont' to change it...
