Decided to switch the laptop that I use for writing to a fully command-line environment (no GUI) and it's been great so far <3. Working on the command-line is a huge productivity booster. Getting rid of the UI is an even bigger one. Some things take time getting used to, but I was able to get used to it in a day or two and it's totally worth it.

Thread for sharing more info about my setup.


One thing that they forgot to include the Wizard was changing the console font, something that you can do with the following command.

For some reason it's not applied on startup in the first console, but it is applied in the virtual consoles, so I just switch to a virtual console on startup.

Virtual consoles are like desktops/workspaces that you can switch between using Ctrl+Alt + F2, Ctrl+Alt + F3 etc.
