I'm having some strange issues with regards to XTerm font sizes since the Xenial update.
The actual content of the terminal (prompts, output, etc) appear excessively large, and I can't adjust them at all via .Xresources. I am able to change the size by using the Ctrl+click option (the "Tiny" option is more in line with what it used to be before the update), but the change isn't permanent across sessions and I'd rather fix the root of the problem.
Another thing is that the Ctrl+click dialogue font appears excessively small for whatever reason.
The DPI settings are the same as before the update, and just about everything else I've ran under X doesn't seem to have this problem. It's just XTerm that's having this issue.
Here's the relevant bit of my .Xresources:
XTerm*renderFont: True XTerm*borderWidth: 0 XTerm*faceName: Bitstream Vera Sans Mono xterm*faceSize: 8 xterm*vt100*geometry: 80x80 xterm*saveLines: 16384 *customization: -color xterm*termName: xterm-256color xterm*eightBitInput: false
The contents of
/etc/X11/app-defaults/XTerm on the problematic machine are exactly the same as the other machines, which aren't having this particular problem, but are still on 14.04. They also have the exact same copy of .Xresources on them.
