Slackware 10.1 console font problem?
So I get Slackie going, I can customize the console font either with "setconsolefont" or editing /etc/rc.d/rc.font or even for individual logins using "setfont blah___" in their startup script. All is well.
(90% of everything I do on a computer involves reading or writing, so I actually spend most of my time in non-Desktop mode!)
The problem is, when I "startx", get the desktop, and then shut it back down again and return to console mode, the console seems to have forgotten how big my screen is. I have it set to a smaller font (-12s) so I have more text on the screen at once. When I come back from desktop, my prompt, cursor, and whatever I'm typing are off the bottom of the monitor!
I can type blind, of course. I type "clear" and get a prompt back to the top, but of course we're going to scroll off the bottom again eventually.
I reboot and it's fine again. I can stay in console mode and do anything. It's only when I return from Desktop to console that this shows up.
16 " monitor. Doesn't happen with the "mod_d.fnt" default font. Happens with (so far) every other font I've tried. Happens with every available window manager, from KDE 3.3 to TWM! All other monitor configuration factors appear normal i.e. graphics display correctly, xterm works, no other problems evident.
