I advise you to use these equivalents and these font sets to have the most complete coverage substituting characters with similar one when not available. The TTY have a maximal number of characters of 256.

That note about fonts is interesting. I didn't know it was easy to convert from one font type to another.

This will all come handy because we repeat the "week in the TTY" every summer and share our experience.

It can raise a few issue, but it usually works fine.

Let's do it!

Huh, interesting. I didn't realize it was that easy to make a TTY font.

However, there's no way I could work consistently in the TTY, unless there's some way of using a duel monitor setup.

I might not be taking part as OpenBSD requires you to recompile the kernel to change tty fonts, and I run current.

We'll see.

Not particularly related to topic, but I'd love if sshbio mad a (very) slighter larger of miniwi. It's a great font but just needs to be larger by a couple of pixels each way for me.

I am very glad you like it!

It is too small for everybody, unless it has a very small and low-res screen. It can be usefull for embedding in interfaces (status...) or semigraphics, like for drawille:

I love 11px size because it is perfect for semigraphics like tewi-font that I use:

I could make a 11px drawille, at least for ASCII.

But 11px is still too small for me sometimes.

What size would you like?

I can see the last one! :D I have it bookmarked for any raspberry pi usage later though.

Am I the only one that feels like the characters are flashing while scrolling the screen.

Yeah, it's very cool, It makes it much more comfortable to be in the TTY, add to that the same colors as in your X terminal emulator by using something like ttycolor.

This needs to be added to the ricerous wiki in the TTY section.

It does happen for me also, much like many seamless tile wallpapers that tightly packed. Zooming and scrolling casuses weirdness.

I have not been able to successfully convert any fonts with such tactics.

I used this to use my Xresources colors in TTY.

The third one looks great. Please keep the original version though. Will still be useful on low ppi screens.
