    Hi, I recently installed Linux for the first time on my Nintendo DS w/Supercard. It opens up a lot of possibilities, but there is one problem and maybe it is my eyes (I wear glasses), but the font is way too small to be comfortable for me. I have a hard time even reading the config files to figure out how I could possibly increase the size or style of the font either. I was hoping someone here could help me out. What is the easiest way to get the default text size larger and hopefully this will work with text based applications run thru Linux as well.




    Thanks!

    no help. Does anyone here use DSLinux or is it a dead project that was done just to prove it could be done?

    Check the /etc/rc.conf file for info on changing font sizes, according to http://www.dslinux.org/f0rums/viewtopic.php?t=688

    I believe consolechars is now included as a standard distribution program. If you can find a *.psf file to use as a font, type "consolechars -f FONTNAME.psf" to change the font immediately.
