Changing font size in Xterm

To change default settings for Xterm, a file called .Xdefaults needs to be in the home directory for the logged in user (root for admin) . Generally the default font size in xterm is always too small to be used, specially in high resolution screens. This can be changed in .Xdefaults.

A sample .Xdefaults is given below:

xterm*foreground: black
xterm*background: white
xterm*font: *-fixed-*-*-*-18-*
xterm*boldfont: *-fixed-*-*-*-18-*
