I want to change console font in tty2~6 to Unifont, so that it can support chinese characters.
And I found that: when updating kernels, it will say:
-> Running build hook: [consolefont]
==> WARNING: consolefont: no font found in configuration
I want to know how to config consolefont, thanks!
PS: can consolefont use non-bitmap fonts like JetBrains Mono or Lucida Typewriter?
Switch to console/tty
will print current font glyphs in a little square.
You can see a bit more info with something like
showconsolefont -i -v
You can temporarily mess with setting fonts that can be found in
With something like this for terminus
(terminus provides many sizes:
pacman -Ql terminus-font | grep console)
For setting it permanently, and adding the mkinitcpio hook, and more … see the archwiki here:
