Change font size in tty console
 
Hi,

I'm trying to change the font size in the tty console without success. One site I looked at said to edit /etc/default/console-setup, but it doesn't seem to exist at that path in Lubuntu. Any help would be appreciated. I really need to change the font size.

As root, run updatedb to update the database for the locate command. When updatedb completes, run locate console-setup. That should show you where it is, if Lubuntu uses it.

Tried that and got an error. :( I can barely see it. Anyone know how to change the font size in tty or exactly where that path is?

Solved! :)

At the command line type:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
