WOW dkeg.... those colors seem "brighter" than your regular ones, the FG and the orange color in particular is kawaii.

Boxxy font definitely suits your style.

frank, I do still have some brighter, but yes, many are lower contrast. I think because I do most them at night.

Bacon mentioned fixed and I just tried it again. It looks very nice in the terminal. They are already installed by default and used on almost every Linux distribution in the tty.

^^ fixed is to fonts what xterm is to terminals, or a Golf 2 is to cars :D it works, doesn't start a revolution, and it's inexpensive.

Thanks Gekko and yes Bacon.

I think I have a little project, trying many of the great bitmap fonts.

Now it is Source Code Pro and yes Wuxy it is crispy sexy.

Where is the love for Inconsolata?
I think it's in the debain repos as ttf-inconsolata or fonts-inconsolata. I prefer the tweaked version called Inconsolata-g, coupled with Solarized.

Hmm... source code pro looks sweet.

An old friend, Droid Sans Mono directly from the repos. I do not know why they changed the name in sid to *fonts-droid-fallback*. In Jessie it is still called *fonts-droid*.

True love for inconsolata indeed.

^ Something's weird with that package. That fallback thing puts a DroidSans.ttf file outside fonts directory and into the fonts the old Droid types are missing. Old configs for this font into .Xresources don't work properly.

^ Droid fonts are not developed anymore upstream (for Android). No kidding. The -fallback is apparently something to keep the users of Droid fonts happy. The replacement is Noto.
