Re: rxvt & custom fonts


Cygwin uses Windows' fonts. The only exception I know of is the TeX 
software, which, as with all TeX software, uses its own fonts.

To select a particular point size, append a hyphen and a decimal integer 
point size to the font's name as used and reported by Windows in the 
"Fonts" folder (under Control Panels, at least in Win 2K).

For example, here's how I start RXVT on a 1280x1024 monitor:

D:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -g 110x89+485+-1 -bg #dddddd -fg #000000 -fn "Lucida 
Console-11" -sr -sl 5000 -tn rxvt -vb -e /bin/bash --login -i

You may or may not have Lucida Console on your system. I cannot recall if 
that's one of the fonts I downloaded from the MS web site or if it was a 
built-in font on Windows 2000.
