I am running mit-scheme v9.0.1 on Arch Linux and I was wondering how I can change the default font for the edwin editor. Preferably I would like to use the same default font as Emacs uses.

I know about the .edwin file for customizing edwin, but I can't find any information on how to change the default font.

Place this in your .edwin:

((ref-command set-font) "9x15")
((ref-command set-frame-size) 163 90)

Also, check this example config file.
