Handy tips for your text console

There are ways to make the Linux text console a nicer place to be, so here are a couple of handy tips:

Add mouse support

sudo apt install gpm

You can now select text to copy it and paste using the middle mouse button.

Choose a bigger/nicer font

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

For very high DPI displays try: UTF-8 > Guess optimal character set > Terminus > 16x32
