    XTerm and Others - Change font size but keep geometry

    Dear Community, I am playing with terminals in X11 using x11-wm/twm. Twm is a simple window manager which supports floating windows. The XTerm are configured to use true type fonts. I can place an instance of Xterm with the geometry option. This allows to specify the size of the XTerm in terms...

    Solved xterm kerning (letter spacing)

    Hello! While configuring my system I managed to screw up fonts in xterm. I wasn't touching fonts or xterm itself, so I guess I happened to pkg remove a package that took a crucial font setting or resource with it. Now, no matter which font and size I choose in .Xresources, xterm has ugly...

    xterm window resizing and content

    Hello everyone. I'm having some trouble trying to add a scroll bar into a Xterm terminal. I tried to find on the internet some way to get it work but I can't because I can't find the right config file, most of the tutorials that I saw were just for Arch Linux and as I can see Xorg is a little...

    Solved twm unable to open fontset [any]

    After the 10 May update to x11-wm/twm, it no longer runs but exits with the message "unable to open fontset [any you care to name]". Restoring the previous version of twm works (as expected). Anyone else have this issue?
