Is there anyway to get the command prompt font (raster font) into the linux terminal. I would really like to know how to because I just really like this font.


  • Which "command prompt"? The one in the (non-graphical) console? – vonbrand Feb 8 '16 at 1:55

"Raster font" sounds like the Windows command-window (and by the way is not a TrueType font). Linux console fonts can be set, but those are custom-built fonts (not generated or automatically translated from Windows fonts). Unless someone made one of the Linux console fonts to imitate the Windows appearance, you're out of luck.

Perhaps you meant the MS-DOS command prompt; in that case the following might be what you're looking for: Stack Overflow: which font is used in MS-DOS?
