I'm using UBUNTU 16.04. In graphical terminals like "Terminal" "guake" and "terminator" I am using zsh with Powerline-Fonts. I looked around a bit but found no proper solution to activate powerline fonts for the TTY as well. I want to make them alvailable for all users on the system.

Is there a way I haven't seen?

  • Because sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup doesn't let you pick any font (probably for stability reasons) I don't think it is easy. You can try running that command however, and see what I mean. I think you can get pretty deep into this and actually do it with some fancy footwork, see: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/49779/… – Jonathan Oct 27 '17 at 16:42
