Search for XLFD (X Logical Font Description). For example, the "size
11" above is the 7th field (pixels) in a XLFD font name, "Courier New"
is the typeface family (family), the second field:
-foundry-family-weight-slant-setwidth-addstyle-pixels-points-horiz-vert-spacing-avgwidth-rgstry-encoding

I'm using

-xos4-Terminus-Medium-R-Normal--14-140-72-72-C-80-ISO8859-1
