xterm look in Debian or Ubuntu

April 30, 2012

If you want your Ubuntu or Debian xterm to look like the RH/Centos version, add this to  your /etc/X11/Xresources/x11-common file or just replace the /etc/X11/Xresources with this file:

This is the global resources file that is loaded when
! all users log in, as well as for the login screen

! Fix the Xft dpi to 96; this prevents tiny fonts
! or HUGE fonts depending on the screen size.
Xft.dpi: 96

! hintstyle: medium means that (for Postscript fonts) we
! position the stems for maximum constrast and consistency
! but don’t force the stems to integral widths. hintnone,
! hintslight, and hintfull are the other possibilities.
Xft.hintstyle: hintmedium
Xft.hinting: true
