    Hi,


    I am trying to use the Xterm terminal with a larger font, but nothing seems to work.


    I tried xterm -fn and it is "Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font"


    If I just run Xterm alone with 'xterm' it gives "Warning: Cannot convert string "nil2" to type FontStruct"


    I searched around the net and some are suggesting installing some kind of font package.


    The thing is I need a portable solution (something that would work in a PND on every ones Pandora)


    SuperZaxxonB2


    Any ideas?


    Thanks!

    Thanks sebt3,


    I used:


    xset +fp /path/to/fontdir


    xlsfonts


    xterm -fn name_from_xlsfonts_list


    The warning remains but I get access to the fonts now.


    I compiled Aterm and it does not error.
