I am trying to use osdSH for notifications.
It has a 'font' parameter that receives a curiously formed string. From the man:
-f -font Set font (Default: -*-lucidatypewriter- bold-*-*-*-*-240-*-*-*-*-*-*)
The manual does not comment on the arguments passed (I assume each * represents a possible argument). It would seem that this notation is (or has someday been) standard, but I've not been able to find anything about it.
what is the standard ?
what argument specifies letter size ?
