I am using Arch Linux. Is it possible to convert a BDF or PCF font to a PSF font for use in console/CONSOLEFONT in rc.conf? I haven't found anything that can do it,except bdf2psf which I got the source but couldn't find out how to use it, the man page was very hard to understand. Thanks in advance for any help.


There is a how-to on the Arch Linux boards.

The basic command is:

./bdf2psf --fb yourbdffont.bdf /whateverpath/current/usr/share/bdf2psf/standard.equivalents /whateverpath/usr/share/bdf2psf/required.set+/whateverpath/usr/share/bdf2psf/useful.set 512 /path/to/nameofpsf-uni-11.psf
