I have some packages of fonts I could send to you, the artwiz and LFP
fonts, many of which are fixed-width fonts for use in terms, unlike TTF.

Some are very small (my personal pref), but some are also quite large.

The artwiz fonts are easy to install (instructions in readme), but the
LFP fonts are a bit trickier. You have to use a util like xfontsel to
get the right fontname and use it on the command line to start aterm,
but if you already know to use TTF, that shouldn't be a prob.
