To change font in Virtual Console
Is it possible to change font in Ubuntu's Virtual Console and make it as it is in SystemRescueCD's Virtual Console?

The font in virtual consoles can be set by setfont. I do not know whether Ubuntu installs the needed console font by default or how is it called, though.

If you would like full Unicode support or arbitrary choice of TrueType fonts in virtual console, I recommend just using framebuffer console and fbterm.

So all I need to know is how to use 'setfont' and what font does SystemRescueCD use?
BTW, what font does it use? :)

Read "setfont --help" output... You can just boot the SystemRescueCD and write the font it uses to HDD, and then use it from file.
