DEBIAN CONSOLE FONTS

I have found another way to change the Default Linux console font to something that is more readable, from the default which is really small text. The instructions are at [1]. This works on my current Debian [2] 10.9 set up, but as usual Your mileage may vary. If you ask on a forum, social media or IRC about this, please quote the website below and not this blog post.

The contents of my /etc/default/console-setup are now as follows:-

 1 # CONFIGURATION FILE FOR SETUPCON
  2 
  3 # Consult the console-setup(5) manual page.
  4 
  5 ACTIVE_CONSOLES="/dev/tty[1-6]"
  6 CHARMAP="UTF-8"
  7 CODESET="guess"
  8 FONTFACE="TerminusBold"
  9 FONTSIZE="16x32"
 10 SCREEN_WIDTH="80"
 11 
 12 VIDEOMODE=
 13 
 14 # The following is an example how to use a braille font
 15 # FONT='lat9w-08.psf.gz brl-8x8.psf'
 16 

Hopefully this is useful.

Climate change threatens European forests

Interesting article posted to the Fediverse by the Science Daily bot.

So trees are essential for several things including CO2 reduction, so we are chopping down trees and also pumping more CO2 in to the atmosphere, which is causing climate change, which in turn is also causing trees to die.

One way to sow the seeds of our own destruction. Once Humans are gone, I think the Earth will recover, probably quite quickly.

We have seen evidence of how wildlife takes back control, during the first lock down in March –> May 2020, with no cars or people around, villages had animals take over. See BBC news link below.

Well worth reading the article, for a picture of what is happening.
