Changing the Console Font of Linux Servers to a Classic VT100/VT220

Place the font file in /usr/share/consolefonts

(you’ll need to remove the ‘_’ from the filename as WordPress changes file names without asking or giving any way to fix)

Edit /etc/default/console-setup to have the lines:

 FONTFACE="VGA"
 FONTSIZE="8x16"
 FONT="vt100.psf.gz" 

This gives the best effect when combined with changing to a blinking green block cursor.
