Change font size in terminal

Hi,

I try to change font size in terminal called terminal, what I already tried?

  • add following lines to ~/.Xresources and run xrdb ~/.Xresources
Xft.dpi:       96
Xft.antialias: true
Xft.hinting:   true
Xft.rgba:      rgb
Xft.autohint:  true
Xft.hintstyle: hintslight
Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault

*font:        xft:TerminessTTFNerdFontMono:size=26:style=medium:antialias=true
						
XT
  • add those lines:
terminal*faceName:          Fixed
terminal*faceSize:          20
terminal*selectToClipboard: false
  • or those
Xft*faceName:          Fixed
Xft*faceSize:          20
Xft*selectToClipboard: false

I will be very pleasure for your help,
thanks!

What terminal are you talking about?
There is no terminal with the plain name terminal or do you mean gnome-terminal?

you can check in the config or with Xprop

xprop WM_CLASS 

click on the terminal

It should show which terminal your using

If you are using the default terminal which came with the i3 community edition you should be able to change the font size there. Use size11 for example and type type xrdb ~/.Xresources in your terminal for the changes to take effect.
If nothing changes then go to your i3 config and look what terminal is set there.

I am sorry but this command not work for me, according to default i3 keybinding I run it by terminal command.

So after add this line and uprate .Xresources file stopped work rofi. I am pretty sure that this is that terminal because that say i3 config file (binding)

I can share my config if you will want to have a look in free time:

Very thanks in advance! <33

Than xorg-xprop is not installed.

I would ask to install it and try again because there is no reference of a package named ’ terminal’ in neither the repo or the aur.

So I truly wonder what terminal you are using.

uxterm is the only one I see, so guess its that one

He should have a line like this set $terminal uxterm in his config though I dont see it.

Yes that’s why.

I only see one keybinding that points to a terminal

bindsym $mod+Return exec uxterm

So I really wonder what terminal Shirobachi means

If you want to use uxterm as your terminal emulator place this line in your i3 config
set $terminal uxterm

somewhere in the beginning.

To change uxterm fonts and size use something like this in your .Xresources

UXTerm*renderFont: true
UXTerm*faceName: DejaVu Sans Mono
UXTerm*faceSize: 10

use the fonts you like of course

Are you having trrouble with rofi now?

Put a ! in front of *font: xft:TerminessTTFNerdFontMono:size=26:style=medium:antialias=true and other changes you made to comment it out or restore the backup .Xresources if you saved one.

@SLaItEr
Oh thanks, I expected get info about command no found…
Terminal returned that

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "urxvt", "URxvt"

@SLaItEr
Actually I use two line aerial binding, I changed it but it was

bindsym $mod+Ctrl+Shift+Return exec terminal

It’s because in xterm / uxterm doesn’t work copy paste and I was not able to change it, also rofi use this terminal for ssh


@chomsky
I think that I make a little bit mess …
I wanted to use xterm, I change there font size and was cool, BUT I could not force xterm to copy paste (same in uxterm) that’s why I came back to terminal I guess it’s correct app’s name
When I was trying change fonts size, I’ve added some line (line below) after reload rofi stopped work just give info about problem.

*font: xft:TerminessTTFNerdFontMono:size=26:style=medium:antialias=true

Actually I do not care with terminal I will use, but I would love to have a bit bigger size than 11 and being able to copy and paste, if you are able to help me I will be grateful

I can paste by clicking the middle mouse button and shift+ctrl+p to copy, shift+ctrl+v to paste.

I checked and for me CTRL+SHIFT+P work for paste, CTRL+SHIFT+V not work at all.
Where can I check it?

I understand you don’t care, but it is important to know when you want to change a setting. In this case it seems to be urxvt.
which means you need to look at this line

URxvt.font:                       9x15,xft:TerminessTTFNerdFontMono

and change it to the proper value you want

The line itself looks a bit odd to me because there a values I would expect with a bitmap font and not with a TTF

I am quite busy now, just wanted inform that line what you wrote work for me, just worder how to change size with this font

Thanks a lot <3

If someone in future have same question, for me work

URxvt.font:                       xft:TerminessTTFNerdFontMono:size=20
