My fonts are pretty dull on the console and i have to regularly type the "setfont" command to make it bright.To avoid typing it everytme I login, i put it in my bashrc script.But if I su to someother login I lose the settings again.Also setfont gives me an error when I use it on the Konsole on KDE.
