How to change font size in tty terminal for base arch linux install


I'm very, very new to Linux, and even with the Arch Wiki links available I don't know what to do to fix this problem. I read it and it makes no sense (yet).

The very first thing I need to do is change the font size of the tty terminal. something that was relatively easy to do with the Ubuntu-based distro I'm also using) but much harder in Arch. Then I can get started on the rest of the installation and muddle through wiki pages.

What exactly do I need to do to make the Terminus font size into 32? I'm lost here.

Just change the font in /etc/vconsole.conf to one you want, for example to ter-132n for a Terminus font with size 32.
