Default Console fonts

Hi all,

I love staying in the console in my OpenBSD and linux computers for some tasks without starting the xwindows system. Some applications like MC look ugly in my OpenBSD console. I wonder how I can go from this (OpenBSD 6,4 current)

To this (Ubuntu linux 18.1)

You can't do what you're asking on OpenBSD. The console font subsystem is different (but, patches welcome). Run mc with the -a flag.

If you'd like some color on the console though:
Code:
$ export TERM=wsvt25
By the way, your attachments are very hard to see because they're so small.

Thanks for your answer Ibara. The think is that instead lines I get question marks symbols (like this ???????????????????????). Sorry for the pictures size... using the -a flag (mc -a) mc works much better, now instead the question mark symbol y get slashes like this ----------------------
