Setting the Default Font

If a client does not request any fonts, the X server uses its default font. If you do not explicitly set the default font, the X server uses the 10x20 built-in font for HMX series and Explora series terminals.

To change the default font, specify the font name in the xserver-default-font parameter (Setup -> Change Setup Parameters -> Fonts -> Default Font).
