GNOME 2.0 Desktop for the Solaris Operating Environment Accessibility Guide

To Customize the Terminal Font

By default, the Terminal application uses the default font settings that are specified in the Font preference tool to display the text in the Terminal window components such as the titlebar, toolbar, menubar, and application dialogs. However, Terminal uses fixed-width fonts to display the contents of the Terminal window, that is the text that is displayed at the command line.

To change the font settings for the contents of the Terminal window, start the Terminal application, then choose Edit -> Current Profile. In the General tabbed section, specify a font for the window contents as follows:

  1. Deselect the Use the same font as other applications option.

  2. Click on the font selector button to select the font type and font size to use for the contents of the Terminal window.
