Font size in IDLE

Yes... the default window font for idle is ugly and not legible with Linux

Edit EditorWindow.py, search for this:
-----
...
        if sys.platform[:3] == 'win':
            text['font'] = ("lucida console", 8)
...
-----
And change it against this:
-----
...
#        if sys.platform[:3] == 'win': # Works with others than Windows
        text['font'] = ("lucidatypewriter", 12) # pretty with a 100 pix/inch
display
...
-----
Test your new font setting for IDLE as "root" to have this effective (users
have no write access to /usr/lib... so they use the "old" EditorWindow.pyc).

That's all!
