I am trying to find an optimal font for gvim to program in C/C++.
I currently have the following in ~/.gvimrc and I don't like it:
if has("gui_gtk2") set guifont=MiscFixed\ 11 else set guifont=-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-60-iso8859-1 endif set columns=80 lines=50 set guioptions-=T "hide toolbar "Try to load happy hacking teal colour scheme "I copy this to ~/.vim/colors/hhteal.vim silent! colorscheme hhteal if exists("colors_name") == 0 "Otherwise modify the defaults appropriately "background set to dark in .vimrc "So pick appropriate defaults. hi Normal guifg=gray guibg=black hi Visual gui=none guifg=black guibg=yellow "The following removes bold from all highlighting "as this is usually rendered badly for me. Note this "is not done in .vimrc because bold usually makes "the colour brighter on terminals and most terminals "allow one to keep the new colour while turning off "the actual bolding. " Steve Hall wrote this function for me on email@example.com " See :help attr-list for possible attrs to pass function! Highlight_remove_attr(attr) " save selection registers new silent! put " get current highlight configuration redir @x silent! highlight redir END
You can use
:set guifont=* to bring up a font chooser dialog. Once you've chosen a font use
:echo &guifont to see what to put in your .gvimrc. (remember to
Personally, I like Inconsolata. From my .gvimrc:
set guifont=Inconsolata\ 13
Is it possible to use Consolas font there? It is the best monosize font I've ever seen.
Ok, it is possible. Check screenshot below:
