Emacs Fonts

Smooth Lines

Changing fonts in Emacs can be challenging at times. Even if you use the menu options, its tedious and  difficult to find and change to the desired font.

You can set Emacs fonts in .Xresources, .Xdefaults or in the dot .emacs config file.

I use the following entry in .emacs to set selected fonts:

(set-default-font "-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-12-120-75-75-m-70-iso8859-1")

Another way to set fonts is to run the function, customize-face:

M-x cusomize-face
Default
Lucidatypewriter
Save

Now enjoy shiny new fonts.

Done!
