the feedback that I got makes me wonder if this is a Slackware
I am running an XFCE desktop in Slackware64 14.2. I use the
shipped xfce4-terminal terminal emulator. Occasionally, I would like to
change the font size for a particular instance of one such emulator - not
for all instances that I may have. The feedback that I got is that Ctrl-+
and Ctrl-- in the target terminal window should do the trick, or, failing
that, a right click in the target terminal window should elicit a menu
containing Zoom In/Zoom Out options.
The thing is, that does not work for me. Ctr-+ and Ctrl-- do
nothing, and right click elicits a menu with no Zoom In/Zoom Out options.
Somebody pointed out that it might be a version issue. People seem to be
using xfec4-terminal version 0.8.6 (under XFCE 4.12, as in Slack 14.2)
whereas Slack 14.2 ships 0.6.3. To my knowledge, this has not been
updated in any subsequent patches. I therefore upgraded it myself to
0.8.6 (it builds without problems) but the behavior described does not
Can anybody using XFCE under Slack 14.2 throw some light here?
