comment How to fine-tune TTF rendering in xterm?
@koniiiik This could be due to different ./configure options being used. I always compile xterm from source (my screenshots are from xterm-314). There are a few freetype-related configure options you can play around with. I used the defaults for those (i.e. did not use --disable-freetype). I'm on FreeBSD 10 and 11.

Also note that with today's ACPI shutdown feature, you actually can shut down using the power button. If the OS has support for catching the ACPI signal (like FreeBSD, Windows, Linux,...) this initiates the OS's shutdown sequence.

@DavidPostill I also read that question before asking. It says nothing about Type 6/7 differences.
