    aterm and fonts

    I just switched to using aterm, but I want it to set the TERM environmental variable to 'xterm'; it's currently 'kterm.' Also, how would I view all the fonts available on my system? The font aterm's using right now is a bit too small for my tastes.

    Flies of a particular kind, i.e. time-flies, are fond of an arrow.

    To set the term name, you can create a file $HOME/.Xdefaults.

    In there put

    aterm*termName: xterm

    To get a list of fonts.


    To then set aterm's font, again in $HOME/.Xdefaults, if ou chose, for example, font a14 (which works well for me with urxvt)

    aterm*font: a14
