The default font size in the non-X terminals is too small for me.
How can I changed it permanently ?
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup in TTY 1, but seems to only effect the 'gnome-terminal' running courtesy X in TTY 7...
UPDATE ... I've just checked more carefully... It actually did changed the font, from 8-14 (it only offers 8 14 and 16).. The width of each char did not change; they only got taller (ie. fewer lines on the screen) ...
I'm getting 160 characters across the screen (on a 17"CRT). That makes it impossible for me... So it seems like it may be a screen resolution issue, and not a font issue (unless I can choose a larger font size somehow)
So the question is now.. Either: How do I change the font size to larger than offered by
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup ... Or: How can I reducet the screen resoluton of TTYs 1-6 ?
