Hi,

I'd like to change the console text color to green, and possible also the font. Any idea on how to accomplish this?

-thanks

Use the setterm command to set terminal atributes. See man setterm for more details.

Can't you enable a menubar by right clicking the terminal window? Then, under edit->profiles you can change colors.
