I recently sojourned in a hacker's paradise and had before me a fine pair of
27-inch widescreen LCDs for a few months.
While there I spent some time using gnome-terminal (I normally use
rxvt-unicode), and routinely worked in a teensie tiny font which got plenty
of code on the screen and was still perfectly legible.
I obtained this font by choosing "Monospace" and "10" in the "Font"
setting on the Edit->Current_Profile->General tab, the typing Ctrl-minus
twice to get down to something I liked.
I have failed utterly to identify that font so that I can ask another
terminal to use it:-( I'm very fond of rxvt-unicode, and it does support
these new fangled font descriptions. And yet the new descriptions are
not very specific - such documentation as I've found seems to say that
I'm saying to the font systems "please rummage around a bit and find
something resembling my request". Is there a way to find out exactly
which font was selected?
Any help in this would be appreciated. I missed the text-dense environment I
had come to like so much, and use so effectively.
