I want to install a minimal openSUSE system on a couple of spare computers, but I’d really like the high res console that you get in the desktop installations of openSUSE with the background. I don’t absolutely need it, but it’s the one thing that makes me choose openSUSE over other distro’s and I don’t want to give it up without a fight.
Can someone advise how to get the nice looking console in a minimal (no Xorg) installation? Thanks.
@Palladium: Sorry, I may have explained my question badly. I’m not exactly a linux buff or anything.
I’m referring to the standard text terminal/console of Linux (no Xorg here :P). The desktop install of openSUSE gets a nice high resolution terminal (when you go to one of the alt+ctrl+fX terminals) that fits perfectly on my monitor (1920x1200).
I did a minimal text only installation, and all I’m getting seems to be 1024x768 and no pretty backdrop (call me pedantic, but I do like the terminal backdrop. It’s an aesthetics thing).
So what I’m hoping to do is clone the terminal configuration from a desktop install (resolution, style and all) and apply it to a minimal install.
@Crysantine: Doing some searching on those terms got what I needed. I managed to get it close to full resolution. Thanks. Will keep working on it.
Do you know where the terminal style config is located?
