I used to use a real VT220 terminal way back in the college days, and I remembered that I rather liked the font. So I decided to make a linux console font to use it on the text console of linux hosts.
Place the font file in
/etc/default/console-setup to have the lines:
FONTFACE="VGA" FONTSIZE="8x16" FONT="vt220.psf.gz"
This gives the best effect when combined with changing to a blinking green block cursor.
Extra bonus: If you use a Raspberry Pi, and have one of the official screens for it, when you use this font, you get a perfect old school 80×24 terminal. Now if only the linux console supported all of the DEC primitives like double sized text and such…
