textual interface font size

asked 2017-11-15 13:46:00 -0500

After hitting CRTL-ALT-F3 my screen switches from the GUI to the Textual Interface but my font is extremely small. This isn't exactly the terminal but rather looks like I'm logging onto a server. Is there anyway that I can change the font size from this interface?

You should be able to change console font with

setfont lat9v-16

You can specify font and appropriate size as needed. To permanently set this, you'll likely need to modify GRUB settings in order to change font for console.

That didn't work for me in Fedora 27 unfortunately.

I figured it out, or at least something that worked.

I was able to use a font "latarcyrheb-sun32" that worked really well. I changed the file /etc/vconsole.conf and it worked!
