I couldn't help but take this probably a step too far. This version updates your prompt to display a different character based on time of day, to illustrate what you should be doing at that time. declare -A pp pp=(["09"]="๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿต" ["07"]="๐ŸŒ…" ["08"]="๐ŸŒ…" [10]="๐Ÿ’ป" [11]="๐Ÿ’ป" [12]="๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ" [13]="๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ" [14]="๐Ÿ’ป" [15]="๐Ÿ’ป" [16]="๐Ÿ’ป" [17]="๐Ÿš—" [18]="๐Ÿš—" [19]="๐Ÿท๐Ÿธ" ...

If you can't install the 'ancient fonts' maybe a sideways ASCII art cheeseburger would work? export PS1="\\u@\h \\w (||]" Of course, there could be different ways of typing this, possibly including lettuce, pickles, etc.

You can use the following code to create a useful and colorful prompt with an ASCII art hamburger. Well... to be correct, this is a cheeseburger, red meat, with salad on white Italian bread! Special delight! ;-) Login as the user, go to the home folder and open the bashrc file: vim ~/.bashrc Add or replace the following line: export ...

This is a one-liner in a terminal. Open a terminal with Ctr+Alt+T and run this two commands. Replace <your_font_zips> with the folder name, where you have placed your zip font files. cd <your_font_zips> unzip "*.zip" "*.ttf" "*.otf" -d ${HOME}/.fonts; sudo fc-cache -f -v The last command extracts all TTF and OTF files into your .fonts folder. ...

Under Edit -> Profile preferences is where it should be. Maybe you didn't notice the checkbox? Untick the Use the system fixed width font and you can change the size:

I had the same problem. After years of annoying copying fonts by hand, I finally gave up and wrote my own program for this purpose. I'll be glad if it will be useful for you and other people: https://github.com/danpla/fontlink

I had the same problem on my new Dell laptop with Intelยฎ HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2).

This looks like a bug in Intel graphics drivers. There is no vivid HWE for trusty yet. So you can do one of these: Wait till new HWE appears in Ubuntu repositories. It is a matter of a week or two, then upgrade to it. I prefer this. Install Ubuntu 15.04. Do 2 + Intel graphics installer. (I do not like this)

This solution seems to have partially fixed it for me UBUNTU 14.04 Gui text and pictures displaying problem like a virus But instead of the following : Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" EndSection I have set the AccelMethod to "sna" Indeed, UXA was giving me terrible lag

I found a solution to my problem, documented here: 14.04 Thinkpad T450: Text getting messed up on large screens Specifically: Put the following: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" EndSection in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, create the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ if ...
