How do you increase the text size in the virtual terminal (the one you get to when you press ctrl+alt F1-6)? My monitor is pretty old and kind of small, so I need the bigger text size to really be able to use it at all. I tried to find the answer in google, but I couldn't find the answer. I found answers for suse and ubuntu and tried to use those. They said to edit part of the boot loader config file, but I couldn't find a similar line in the grub.conf file. And I don't want to play with it without knowing what I'm doing.
From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done:[URL]...
When I am in the middle of reading a post in Akgregator and I decide I need larger characters, I press [Ctrl [+]] to increase font size. This increases the characters displayed but also displaces my vertical reading position so that I have to scroll to the text I have been reading.

I am writing a program in C to create a GUI application using GTK 2. My actual program is quite large, so I am using a modified version of the sample program from GNOME library for trial. I wish to increase the font size, and I have using PangoFontDescription. I have made that section of the code bold and italic below for quick reference to the code that affects fonts. But it does not make any difference. I am compiling the C file using gcc. The code is as follows(hello.c):
I'm using CentOS 5.4 servers installed in a VMWare virtual machine with no X.Org server installed, so all access is via command line and the linux terminal. I use Shift-PgUp to view the scrollback buffer, but its size is very limited. How do I increase the size of the scrollback buffer?
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.
I've read so many howto's and threads but never managed to get a decent font size on my tty's. Before grub2 I used to use vga=795 (or something like that), but now that isn't working anymore. I have a 24" Samsung screen and the font size is HUGE. Has anyone with same hardware succeeded in setting a decent resolution? I've played around with gfxpayload and all that stuff. I'm using fglrx driver on an up-to-date system.
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?
I was using UBUNTU and still do, but I dual boot UBUNTU/Slackware now and my Linux knowledge has increased so much. This forum has been right there with me for the last couple weeks and I was reticent to post a question until a knew I had exhausted the available sources. So here goes.....Can I change the font size of the system shell that begins at startup (with the boot info and stuff). I really like using this shell as user. The thing that would make me nuts for it is if I can make the text a bit smaller. I have a 1920x1200 display and could really take advantage of all of that "real estate." The other posts related to this seem to focus an a broken configuration from the beginning, but my install is SWEET. Can I change this or is it baked into the system?
I am new to slackware, but not new to linux. I recently installed slackware 13.37, and am enjoying it very much so far. The most annoying problem I currently have is that, after starting X, I cannot switch to a virtual terminal or even end X without having a problem. For instance, from the GUI if I hit ctrl-alt-F1, instead of going to the 1st virtual terminal, the screen fades quickly to black and does not return. I have not been able to make any progress on this problem, so any input would be greatly appreciated.The only thing worth noting really is that I'm using Fluxbox as my default window manager. Other than that I haven't done a lot of modifications to the base system other than installing some basic packages, but I had this problem since booting directly after installation of the os.
When I try to go to a virtual terminal from X the writing is too dim to read. When I boot to run level 3 all is fine, then I "startx" and use the gui. If I "ctrl-alt-F3" the printing on the screen is so dim that I can't see it. Is there a setting for this somewhere that I haven't found. Before installing Slackware 13-64 I ran Zenwalk for over a year and never had this problem.
When I downloaded the ISO file thru DAP it showed up as 699.44MB but when I completed the download onto my HDD (XP SP3 & NTFS) it shows up as 716,230KB (see below) with a result when I try to burn on to a CD. I get an error that the file is too large. Whats happening, is there a solution to this?
I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
