    grep through the source code looking for the word "font". Once you find it,
    change it.

    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!

    Look in the file config.txt in the directory IDLE is in.
