How can I change font color in console of kali linux


Hello

I did a google search on this but I get results for the terminal. I don't want the terminal as I know how to do this. I want to change the colors of the console. Bright green for foreground color and black for the background color. Thanks in advance!

Is Kali Linux Right For You?

As the distribution’s developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if you’re unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.

Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges.

Kali is not my main production OS. I use kali in a VM for some tools not available in my main linux distribution.

The default console font and color in kali linux is very hard to read. But after doing more google searches, I was able to improve the readability of the console. I made the font much bolder and with a larger font size. It's much better now.

exactly.
most gui applications also have preferences in the menu, accessible without google's help.
