I am making a console application running on Raspbian. I hit
CTRL+ALT+F2 to get to the console view, but now I do not have access to the same fonts I had in terminal. I am trying to install a specific ttf font. It works fine in terminal, but I need it to be full-screen. When I use
dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, I only get a list of a few fonts, not the one I am trying to install. I tried
setfont, but I get a
Bad input file size error, probably because I imagine true type fonts are not supported by the console. I tried converting the font using FontForge, but I'm not sure which format to convert it to, because the ones I tried gave the same error.
An answer to any of the following would fix my problem:
- How do I use a ttf in the console?
- How do I convert a ttf to a format the console could use?
- How do I fullscreen the terminal (no GUIs or windows, just text)?
