I was experimenting with switching from dmenu to XMonad.Prompt.Shell.
With dmenu I can get the font I want by passing the argument '-fn "DejaVu
Sans Condensed-8:normal"' (a truetype font, using xft).
I would like the same in XMonad.Prompt.Shell.
xfontsel(1) of course does not list truetype fonts, and the
documentation only says:
font :: String Font"
So if anyone else runs into this: what you need to know/guess is to
prefix the 'font' with "xft:" in your configuration; i.e.:
myPromptConfig = defaultXPConfig
position = Top
, font = "xft:DejaVu Sans Condensed-8"
