Can we use external fonts on Xshell?

 
I want to use my favorite font, but I can not find it in the font list.

Program Ver. : Xshell 3.0

Xshell only supports fixed width fonts. This is because the terminal environment only allows fixed number of characters in a row or column. If you use non-fixed width fonts, the terminal will look garbled.

I am running Centos linux in my terminal windows

anyway to fix the text mode setup display?

I have tried all the terminal settings + all the fonts.

Some fonts give a little better display, but none of them show it 100%

This problem may occur when the terminal type is not setup properly. Try changing the terminal type to 'xterm' or 'vt320'. To do this, use the following command:

export TERM=xterm

or

export TERM=vt320

Also, make sure that you select the correct encoding type from the Xshell main toolbar. You must select the same encoding type with the remote server. To find out the encoding type on the server, use the following command:

echo $LANG
