For xterm take a look at the zsh aliases hide, tiny, small, medium,
default, large, huge and smartfont or run 'xterm -name huge'.

Take a look at ~/.Xresources for some preconfigured things and
adjust what you need. Run 'xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources' afterwards to
apply changes.

Did you load the parallelport module?
Run 'modprobe parport ; modprobe parport_pc ; Restart cupsys' as
user root.

If the module is loaded already please provide output of:

cat /proc/devices
ls -la /dev/lp*
