How to increase font size in terminal?

Post#1 by jimbo » 04 Mar 2014, 03:08

Hi! Just trying Porteus and am very impressed with speed and impressive selection of software. Especially taken with Chrome Browser - this is the first time I've been able to use the "Cast" feature in Linux to send any web content to the Chromecast device. That used to only work in Windows! Very handy!
Only question I have today is how to increase the font size in terminal. My old eyes need more help! Thanks and Great Job to all "youse" guys.

Hello jimbo
You should post which Desktop/ terminal you use.
e.g.
In xfce4-terminal (xfce 3.0rc2)
click edit -> preferences -> Appearance -> font
or rightclick into the terminal -> preferences -> Appearance -> font
If xfce isn't your DE, be patient, i'm sure someone else knows how to do it.

Thanks Donald! I'm using LDXE (v3.0 RC2) and the LXterminal. I'll check that website too.
