Full Version: Font Size In Terminal Or Qconsole

Hello,

the font size in these applications is a bit too small ("medium fixed"). Is there a way to use a bigger font to get something like 80x25?

Thank you.

I was a bit inaccurate. fn+1 / fn+2 works with qkonsole. But qkonsole consumes VERY much memory.
"terminal": 13MB (~2MB resident)
qkonsole: 26MB (~11MB resident)

There is always a console window active on my Zaurus. That is the reason why I like to save some memory.

But even qkonsole does not give me 80x25. The best match is something like 78x20. If I have some time available I think I try to replace lcfont with another font which can be generated in sizes like 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18. Hopefully the width/height ratio will fit in the 80x25 frame.

Thank you anyway.

If you use lcfont, you don't type "\". If you type \ print the "yen" character.
If you resolve this problem can you tell me the solution.

Yes, you're right.

As there is no way to add entries to the "Fonts" menu, I think the only way is to look for a replacement font (fixed width). You can backup lcfont and rename this new font to "lcfont".
