Background: I've installed Linux on an Android device using GnuRoot, which
uses PRoot (like chroot) to install a commandline Linux into a directory
and limits its access to the rest of the file system.
I'm using an app called Xserver XSDL to give me Xwindows-like
functionality. I didn't do a full install of Xwindows.
I want to use I3 because of its support for keyboard shortcuts. I have I3
up and running quite well.
#1. I can't change the font used in Xterm. I've edited .Xresources, but
when I do:
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
...I get a 'Can't open display' message. I guess the reason for that is
obvious, but I need to change the font! How can I do it?
#2. I also want to change the font I3 uses in the top and bottom of
windows. I copied the default i3 configuration file to:
...but editing it has no effect. Is this likely to be a result of my
strange setup, or am I missing something basic?
