PiCore - setfont.tcz
« on: March 15, 2014, 10:42:37 AM »
Hi!

I use to work on my PC with tinycore in console mode. To set a bigger font I use setfont.

Unfortunately it seems that there is no setfont.tcz-package for my raspberry pi (piCore) - yet.

What can I do to get a bigger font?
I am not familiar with compiling sources.

Thanks for any help

What about 'loadfont'?

Hi tinypoodle!

It works - thanks for your great hint.

I did not know loadfont at all. But as I red - loadfont is some stripped down setfont.
All I had to do is to decompress my psf.gz-font-file (with gzip -d *.gz) and load it with "loadfont < font-file.psf".

Thanks again for helping me - and my weak eyes.
