General :: Any Way To Permanently Change Terminal Font Size

Jul 10, 2011

I installed Ubuntu on my Netbook. I like it to use the Terminals. I don't mean the "GUI-Terminal-Emulators", I mean those I can open with "Alt+FX". There the font size is to big, so I changed it with "dpkg-reconfigure console-setup". It worked, but after restart the font were "reseted" and big. Is there a way to permanently change the font size?

Ubuntu :: Change Font Size In Tty Terminal?

Jun 20, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04. When I first installed it, the virtual terminals had a good font size. After a few weeks, I set the visual appearance setting to normal (in the gui desktop). Doing this required me to install third party graphics drivers from nvidia. in installed fine, and my gui desktop still functions as I would expect, however, all of the virtual terminals now have a much larger font size, as does the ubuntu boot logo.

General :: How To Change Xterm Font Size

Nov 17, 2010

I was wondering how to change the xterm font size and may be the font itself. Also we go to tty1 when we press Ctrl+Alt+f1 , f3 and so on. Is there any way I can change that too and maybe change the colour of the font and the size of it. I did change the resolution once in ubuntu with startup manager. I'm using fedora 14.

Fedora :: How To Change The Font Size

Nov 5, 2009

I'm a student in a linux class and we just installed fedora. so far it's nice except that the work we do is in the CLI which I can barely see because it's so small on the screen! I've been squinting at the screen for a little while now but it's just proving to give me more of a headache and hurt my eyes than anything. Anyone know how to change the font size so that I can actually see the work I'm doing?

OpenSUSE :: Change KDM Font Size On 11.2?

Nov 16, 2009

I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2 on my Acer Aspire One with a 9 inch LCD. I have configured the monitor in Sax2 to reflect the size and 1024x600 resolution, and as a result the desktop fonts are all sized correctly.

However, the fonts on the KDM log-in screen are too large, and I'd like to reduce them if possible. Looking in the KDE Control Center, I tried using the Login Manager utility to adjust the KDM theme, but any changes I made seemed to have no effect i.e. changing the font size, or even the overall theme itself, still resulted in KDM using the default green OpenSUSE theme with large fonts.

Does anyone know, therefore, how to adjust the KDM font size or DPI in OpenSUSE 11.2?

SUSE :: Can't Change Font Size

Aug 1, 2010

No matter what I do with system settings I cannot change the font size or type of font in Firefox and Thunderbird - other programs as well. Is there somewhat to change this? The fonts are too small and I have vision problems. I know I can hit ctrol ++ but with other distros I can change the deflt font size for the system. I am using openSUSE 11.3 and like it very much except for this lack of a feature.

Ubuntu :: Font Rendering On Kubuntu Terminal - Irrespective Of Size ?

Sep 1, 2011

See the pic. It happens in both Yakuake and Konsole. I am using inconsolita size 13, but the problem occurs irrespective of size.

I think it's only the bolded text which gets cutoff, but I am not sure. This problem is especially bad when writing something using nano or vim.

Just tried it with DejaVu Sans Mono, and the problem disappears. Weird. I would still like a solution, if you know anything, I am somewhat picky about inconsolita.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze - Change Grub Password And Console Font Size?

Nov 5, 2010

I'm trying to do is protect the computer against housemates. The standard procedure I do with Lenny:

1. Password protect BIOS.

2. In BIOS, always boot from hard drive. Disable booting from any other device such as USB or CD-ROM.

3. Password protect Grub (v1) using the "password --md5 $1$9MuaA/$5TDLgvmcEiCWNr5W9VaMK1" syntax in my menu.lst file.

With the above precautions in place, [I think] the only way to gain root access to the system is to take the case lid off and proceed to do stuff physically (like set jumpers and/or take out the hard drive). Am I correct? My reasoning for this is, the computer boots -> must boot from HD -> must load Grub -> must go to default menu item since others are protected, and cannot command prompt in Grub without password.

Anyhow, In Squeeze, I was a bit disappointed to find out, after doing a bit of Google-research, that Grub v2 (which is standard on Squeeze now) does not easily support password protecting the Grub menu. Am I correct? Will this issue perhaps be addressed in the Squeeze final release? Is this feature dumb anyways because the Grub password is of no use (i.e. my paragraph above is complete horseradish)?

Another thing I would like to do is change the console font and size back to something more "normal" or "classic", not some crazy tiny font that's only found in totally bleeding edge Linux distrubutions <gasp!>. I found that the Squeeze console font (e.g. when I type Ctrl+Alt+F1) is wicked tiny. I wanna change it to "normal". Grub v2 password and console font config?

Debian :: Change Font Size In Editable Fields - Borked After Fglrx Install

Sep 10, 2010

I recently installed an ATI graphics card driver (fglrx) and ran the aticonfig --initial program/option, which makes the necessary changes to xorg.conf for the user.

My original problem was that all of my font sizes were changed (far too small to even read). I found a temporary way around this by simply increasing the sizes in the gnome appearance properties, but the problem is there is no option to change the size of text that appears in editable fields. For example, simple text-line entry widgets in various applications appear very small (as well as the default text size in icedove mail). Trying to use openoffice.org Writer or Calc also gives the same results. It seems directly related to the sizes of "editable fields" (things like my text editor - gedit- appear to be fine, as well as my terminal). I'm guessing this could have something to do with my xorg.conf, but I've looked through the file and don't know what to change, or where else I could look. If it helps at all, I have most of my font sizes now (in gnome) set to 14, but they appear as 12.

I'm not sure exactly why this is happening, but I need some help in getting some of this text readable again. Please see the attached screenshot of a blank Calc spreadsheet, and it might shed some light on this. You might also notice that in the screenshot, the default font size is 10, but if I change this to 12, and then load it on say, a Windows computer, the text will appear to be much larger than a 12. I'll also include my xorg.conf, in case that has anything to do with it.

Ubuntu :: Why Upgrade Would Change Terminal Font Settings

Directory names and certain filenames appear in a bold font that gets cut off on the right side of each string of text. This issue only arose after upgrading to 10.04 LTS. I can not figure out why the upgrade would change the terminal font settings in such a way.

OpenSUSE :: Change Ghome Terminal Default Size And Position?

I'd like to make Gnome Terminal always start using this command line: gnome-terminal --geometry=92x49+0+0 However, when I right-click the icon either in Start Menu Favorites or in Application Browser, there is no 'Properties' option where I can configure this. Nor does there appear to be any option in Gnome Terminal Profile Preferences (other than to run something other than the shell when starting Terminal). Anyone know how make this modification so Gnome Terminal will always start in the same size and position?

General :: Increasing Font Size In Console

Feb 26, 2011

I am using ubuntu lucid.as a desktop and don't run a server. The editor I use is vim so increasing font by edit > profile preferences. What I need to know is how to increase the size in console ie. when I use Ctrl +Alt + F1 to F6. On running xrandr I get this :

[Code]...

I know that,the graphical user interface ( using X windows , I think ) sits on top of the base system ie F1 to F6. In the Fs , xrandr replies "Can't open display ". The question is am I right in thinking that "gui" is totally independant of the base ( is that the correct word ?). I have read that messing about with resolution can wreck a monitor ( I'm using a laptop) , is there a safe way to proceed?

General :: Ubuntu - Font Size On Web Pages - Looks Too Small

Dec 9, 2010

I installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" Amd_64 version on my dell vostro 1015. My screen resoultion is set to 1366*768(16.9) by default because the font size on web pages looks too small. I am not able to understand if it is font size too small or is it a resolution set too high. I am trying to fix this because I find very difficult to read web pages specifically. I tried to zoom in on firefox, but that is not permanent solution.

I want to decrease my screen resolution. I opened drop down and I find following:

None of the above resolution suits my laptop. The monitor type identified by Ubuntu says Laptop Monitor.
