How to change GLtext font size in XScreensaver???

#1 Postby Lumenate » Fri Nov 10, 2017 6:12 pm

I would like to change the font size of the displayed text on the GLtext XScreensaver. I have searched and it appears a file needs to be edited, but which one in MX-16.1 32 bit???

I attempted to follow some of those useful hits on the first page such as "a quick look through the strings in the binary of the application shows a typical X11 resource for the title font:"
I attempted to look at the binary for GLtext. Located in /usr/lib/xscreensaver/. The option available was leafpad. Only 7 characters appeared. Four of the characters appeared to be Hex, looking like a square with 4 characters inside. For example, the first one had 007F. Then 'ELF', the second, 0001, third, 0001, fourth, 0001. The rest of the binary gltext was blank. I did not see anything that looked like what was discussed in the hits in google. Is there a better program to view these files?
Thanks
