Agreeing that it would be nice if the two sets of configurations were integrated together, there are two reasons why they are different: they evolved separately (and no one has proposed an integrated solution which satisfies the requirements of both), and they have different requirements. The Linux virtual consoles provide a terminal interface which ...

The question-mark-in-a-box is the Unicode replacement character. The Linux console will print that in two cases: the character is not in the currently-loaded font (512 glyphs), or the display-controls feature has been enabled in the console.

The "emulated consoles" are system-specific, as you understand with your reference to fbdev. Furthermore, they are generally integrated into the kernel, so trying to modify them directly would require modifying the kernel, which is certainly more 'overkill' than putting up with X. You could use fbdev directly, or write something based on SDL like Thomas ...

Well, i've already researched it and all answers were NO YOU CAN'T. Maximum i get was installing imagemagick package via apt-get install imagemagick command and running display imagefile.jpg, but under X11.
