Do you need this for the console or are you using a remote access utility like putty etc.?

If it is the latter, you can set your font/appearance for the terminal window from within the utility itself.

You cant set font size in a PS1 variable, you should do this on the terminal options

Hi mac_g

Sorry, do you mean that you only want to set the font using the PS1 variable?

There is a way of setting the font other than the terminal too; I haven't used this method before, but it seems that the 'setfont' command exists to allow you to set the console font using a predefined console font file, like;

setfont /path/to/fontfile

Open in new window

You can set this up in the default profile/bashrc to configure your environment.

If you need the terminal window utility option (like putty) please say, it is a trivial task.

Cheers, JP
