Font size


Where does one set the font size when working on the commandline? I am using Red Hat 8.9, so my shell is bash.

Regards
Loke

Are you using an X-windows based terminal application, or are you in text mode?

I am in textmode. It's a server without X-windows.

oh i forgot

oh btw..

There are other possibilities that avoid to use the mouse :
- <SHIFT> + <+> (on the keypad) to increase font size on the fly
- <SHIFT> + <-> (on the keypad) to decrease font size on the fly

however this is NOT defaulted.. i'm not sure where to find the file to edit.

I also want to switch the default font too
ie. veranda .. used on most websites...
