Question Change Linux console font


I'm using an script like this:
Code:
if [ $TERM = linux ]
then
    setfont ter-v16n
fi
to change my login consoles font. I know that ter-v16n is for terminus font. but I don't know where it comes from, or how to change it with another font?

The place you can look for available console fonts, depends on your system. For example in my system (Slackware) it's /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts, on Debian it's /usr/share/consolefonts.

Thank you, Thank you. I'm on Slackware too, and I found there every thing I want ;-)
