I tried now inside Emacs "(modify-all-frames-parameters '((font .
"-misc-inconsolata-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1")))", but when
evaluating this line I get the following error "Debugger entered--Lisp
error: (error "Font `-misc-inconsolata-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1'
is not defined")", so I guess there's still something I'm missing?
