I struggled with the default font on the Console as my eyesight is not what it used to be.
I changed it. I guess most of you old hands know how to do this already but for those who dont …
sudo nano /etc/default/console-setup
There are 2 parameters FONTFACE and FONTSIZE. I chose consolas as my font and 10x20 as my font size. Consolas should already be installed.
Save and exit the file then
sudo /etc/init.d/console-setup restart
The console should now have your new font at the new size.
I then got a bit cocky and installed a font called inconsolata. Google it. Copy the .otf file and directory into /usr/share/fonts/truetype. Change the FONTFACE as above to inconsolata.
I found this font as it was mentioned in one of the videos that tedsluis mentioned in this post about Docker http://discussions.flightaware.com/ads-b-flight-tracking-f21/running-dump1090-mutability-in-docker-container-t36436.html
