BackTrack Console Font

I use a lot of command lines. Thus I need a cool font for my console.

Check you current console font setting: showconsolefont -i
By default, you should get 8x16x256

To change your console font, edit two lines (CODESET and FONTSIZE) in the file below:

/etc/default/console-setup:


#CODESET="Lat15"
CODESET="Uni1"


FONTFACE="VGA"
#FONTSIZE="16"
FONTSIZE="14"

Once it is done, reboot and you can type the command command again to check the console font settings. And you should get 8x14x512 now.

You may use others. Check out at /usr/share/consolefonts folder.
