How to change tty fonts resolution

Question

Hi; I use nvidia-drivers and i'd like to change the resolution in tty [1..6].

 

How I can do this ?

 

I've made various experiments modifing /etc/default/grub but without results (either using boot-update than grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg).

 

Thank You.

There may be other ways, but I use consolefont.  1st entry here describes it (but briefly): http://www.funtoo.org/Fonts.  Here's a decent how to: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/linux-tutorials-howtos-reference-material/176836-howto-console-font-tweaking-gentoo.html

 

For more help, here is one of my /etc/conf.d/consolefont files, it's default except for the "consolefont" entry:

# The consolefont service is not activated by default. If you need to
# use it, you should run "rc-update add consolefont boot" as root.
#
# consolefont specifies the default font that you'd like Linux to use on the
# console.  You can find a good selection of fonts in /usr/share/consolefonts;
# you shouldn't specify the trailing ".psf.gz", just the font name below.
# To use the default console font, comment out the CONSOLEFONT setting below.
#consolefont="default8x8"
consolefont="ter-116n"

# consoletranslation is the charset map file to use.  Leave commented to use
# the default one.  Have a look in /usr/share/consoletrans for a selection of
# map files you can use.
#consoletranslation="8859-1_to_uni"

# unicodemap is the unicode map file to use. Leave commented to use the
# default one. Have a look in /usr/share/unimaps for a selection of map files
# you can use.
#unicodemap="iso01"
