    Slackware 10.2: How do I change default font for shell?


    When installing slack' I decided to change the default shell font, I think the option was in xorgconfig? Anyway I accidently put the wrong one up and know all the shells/konsoles have a font that doesn't display "/" "\" "|" }" "{" etc. But replaces them with "e" and "a"...

    Anyway you can't do anything in linux with out a / or \. So, how can I change the shell font back to a font that recognizes / and \.

    Thanks.

    Run "pkgtool" and run the script again. Should be the second to last option on the main menu.

    thanks for the tip. I'm a newbie so I'm not exactly sure how to run "pkgtool", Do I just type "pkgtool" (without qoutes) and follow instructions?

    Yep... I would recommend getting used to pkgtool, it's you package manager, so anything you install or remove will be either using that command (which is what I usually use) or one of the two: "installpkg" and "removepkg". Grab a copy of the SlackBook and read the package manager chapter, it's quite short since there really isn't much mistery behind Slack's package managing.
