Larger incosolata font sizes

I’m using I3wm and my .Xresources file has a line
URxvt.font: xft:inconsolata

I would like to use larger sizes than the default but don’t know how to specify it.


Hi and welcome to the Forum!

In order to specify the size of the desired font, use something like this in your ~/.Xresources file:

URxvt.font:     xft:inconsolata:size=16

(and modify the value 16 according to your liking)

I’m not using Inconsolata in my system, so make sure this is the right term to use for the font.

After that run xrdb ~/.Xresources for the changes to have effect and re-open the terminal.

Thank you, bill_t
