View Full Version : [ubuntu] text mode resolution

July 11th, 2012, 02:21 PM
I need to increase the font size and the vertical refresh rate for the 6 terminals available through ctrl+alt+F[1-6]. I tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup and adding vga='different numbers' after the boot line but I saw no difference. (In GUI I did configure a 800x600 pixels resolution and a 100MHz vertical refresh rate successfully). Anybody knows why can't I get any results with vga='number'? Can I change these parameters after boot?

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 lts Lucid updated to the day, kernel: 2.6.32-41-generic. 10.04 is upgraded from 8.04 and in fact I'm using lubuntu, if that matters.
