After updating my X fonts (via portsnap/portmaster) yesterday, I
discover that aterm is started with an uncomfortably small font size.
I've using ~/.Xresources to specifiy the font:
but this does not seem to work now. Trying from the command line:
% aterm -fn 10x20
aterm: can't load font "10x20"
% aterm -fn 9x15
aterm: can't load font "9x15"
Checking UPDATING, I see the following note that may possibly be
AFFECTS: Users of x11-servers/xorg-server and other X servers
AUTHOR: bapt at FreeBSD.org
All fonts ports have been modified to respect XDG and install in
The Xorg servers now are looking there by default, and have been
modified to also look into etc/X11/fontpath.d (see Xserver(1) for more
details) adding a symlink in that directory pointing to a font directory
will automatically add the later into Xorg FontPath
Is this telling me I have to do something, and if so, what? Am I
supposed to be adding a symlink where pointing to what? And does this
have anything to do with my problem anyway?
