I kind of like the simplicity of xterm, and it comes with the basic
twm window manager I use. My problem is the small font size, but I
can't seem to figure out how to set the xterm font size. Any clues?
The first approach I recommend is to start program xfontsel. There select a
font you like, and copy its description.
Then try it out like this:
$ xterm -font *-fixed-*-*-*-18-*
You'll see the result in another xterm. Substitute my font description with
your choosen one.
If you like it, put it into your resource file (~/.Xresources and/or
Restart your X session, and check if it works.

FeZ, I'm going to play with xfontsel. It's actually quite complex..
What I am discovering is that the easiest one is to add the -fn 9x15 to my
.xinitrc callout for each xterm.
Anyway, I have something to play with for a while.
