No i3 or awesome here!
Just a fuck**** TTY console (oh well in a VBox :D)
It is a little bit tricky ’cause (I think) nowadays there’s no much people tweaking this aspect. I found a lot of posts suggesting how to do that using grub. The problem is: now we have grub 2 and it works in a different way.
So how have I obtained this tty?
First of all pay attention, ’cause I have done this on a Debian. I don’t know how it can be done in others Linux distributions, just because (as you can see later), I have used a Debian specific utility to configure the console font.
Configure grub 2
Open grub 2 configuration file:
sudo vi /etc/default/grub
and set the following rows:
then reboot your system.
Change console font
Here I’ve used dpkg-reconfigure that is an utility provided by Debian.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
and then I selected:
UTF-8 . Combined - Latin etc... Greek Terminus 6x12 (framebuffer only)
I think you have to reboot again… or maybe no… well if it doesn’t work immediately, try a reboot 😀
Why I wrote this post after so many years?
I’ll think about this in the next days and I’ll let you know in a couple of years 😀
