Locate the Tools/idle directory where it resides; you'll see several
files named config.txt, config-unix.txt, etc.  Check config-unix.txt:

font-name= courier
font-size= 10
print-command=lpr %s

and you'll easily understand how to edit it in order to make idle
use another font and/or size.  (Note: this is about the current
idle -- I'm not sure, offhand, if "idlefork", that's going to be
the idle version with the coming Python 2.3, uses the same approach).
