Re: Regarding the font size

 
Font size is application dependent and you should set it up in each application basis. For instance, if you are using xterm, prese control + right click and select an appropriate font size.

In case, you are talking about KDE or Gnome, you can use their control panel.

Hope this helps.

Re: Regarding the font size

 
Brian is absolutely right. Here are some more tips.

You can also specify fonts in the .Xdefaults file. For example:

XTerm*Font: -misc-fixed-*-*-normal-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
XTerm*boldFont: -misc-bold-*-*-normal-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Following link contains some helpful tips.
