Bug Description

== Justification ==
The console font size on a high resolution screen is only suitable for
eagles, although we can choose a bigger font by running:
  sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

But that is not enough, the font size before video driver kicks in is
still small. If we need to debug some early stage issues that will be a
problem.

== Fix ==
ac8b6f14 (Fonts: New Terminus large console font)
Config for this TER16x32 and the compiled-in fonts support needs to be
enabled to keep engineers away from ophthalmologists.

* Disco
  It's already there. Just need to enable the configs.
* Cosmic / Bionic
  Patch can be cherry-picked.
* Xenial
  It needs an extra patch to make it a clean cherry-pick:
  * 7bcae826 (lib/fonts/Kconfig: keep non-Sparc fonts listed together
* Trusty
  It needs two extra patches to make it a clean cherry-pick:
  * fonts: Add 6x10 font (33ac9dba)
  * lib/fonts/Kconfig: keep non-Sparc fonts listed together (7bcae826).
  And a config entry for the 6x10 font.

Commit "fonts: Add 6x10 font" is just adding a new font.
Commit "lib/fonts/Kconfig: keep non-Sparc fonts listed together" is
just a patch for context rearrangement.

I think these two are safe to be pulled-in.

== Test ==
Test kernels: http://people.canonical.com/~phlin/kernel/lp-1819881-font/

Add "fbcon=font:TER16x32" to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in
/etc/default/grub, and follow these steps.

* Disco
  sudo update-grub; sudo reboot
* Cosmic / Bionic
  Add "GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=3840x2160" to /etc/default/grub
  sudo update-grub; sudo reboot
* Xenial
  sudo update-grub; sudo reboot
* Trusty
  sudo update-grub; sudo reboot (I need the proprietary nvidia driver
  to boot for my SUT - Dell Precision M3800)

The font before the video driver kicks in will get bigger.

== Regression potential ==
Minimal, changes are limited to adding console fonts, turn on fonts
related kernel configs.

[CONFIG] please enable highdpi font FONT_TER16x32

This is now available in v5.0

config/config.common.ubuntu:# CONFIG_FONT_TER16x32 is not set

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/diff/lib/fonts/Kconfig?id=ac8b6f148fc97e9e10b48bd337ef571b1d1136aa

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

apport-collect 1819881

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

I will just patch this for D, for T/X/B/C, it looks like the FONT_TER16x32 support (ac8b6f14) can be cherry-picked as well, please let me know if we want this for older releases.

Found a UHQ device for the test, it seems that even with

and set it to y for all the arches in annotations, this is still not working.

Will keep checking what's missing here.

Po-Hsu Lin (cypressyew) wrote :

BTW, the way how I check this is to lookup FONTS in the config file:

$ grep FONT /boot/config-5.0.0.9-generic
CONFIG_FONT_SUPPORT=y
# CONFIG_FONTS is not set
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

System was booted with kernel parameter fbcon=font:TER16x32

Dimitri John Ledkov (xnox) wrote :

I am in ecstasy! this is so good! OMG! My eyes! I love this!

After installing your kernel, one needs to enable the font in console-setup too:

$ cat /etc/default/console-setup | grep '^FONT'
FONTFACE="TER"
FONTSIZE="16x32"

Then i did update-initramfs, and rebooted, and omg how nice my tty is now!

If you can, please cherrypick this patch into all the GA kernels as far back as possible, if it like applies cleanly without too much trouble.

Later, we will need to work on enabling console-setup (or maybe kernel?!) to autodetect and autopick TER 16x32.

Thanks for sharing the tips, it's a bit hard to find these steps on the Internet, perhaps because these is a new feature.

Will try to bring this to other kernels.

Po-Hsu Lin (cypressyew) wrote :

Hi Dimitri,

While trying to verify this on other kernels, I found that you can even enable this TER 16x32 font without this patch.

Just change what you mentioned in comment#7
FONTFACE="TER"
FONTSIZE="16x32"

Run "update-initramfs -u" and reboot (or one can use "dpkg-reconfigure console-setup" to choose with Terminus 16x32). I think maybe this is not using the kernel compiled-in fonts.
If that's the case, we need another way to verify this fix.

Can you confirm this fact?
Thanks

Dimitri John Ledkov (xnox) wrote :

Indeed, i booted the stock kernel with my new console-setup settings... and i get readable ttys still.

And the config for your kernel did not appear to list 16x32 there either.

Can you please share the source for the kernel you have built?

Also I wonder where the TER 16x32 font is coming from, and how can we make it like the default on the Ubuntu Desktop.

Po-Hsu Lin (cypressyew) wrote :

Thanks for the feedback.

This is the old patch that I used to compile the test kernel in #4:
https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/dkGBkd2R85/

I think I have found the cause, the compiled-in option was not set.

If you run "make menuconfig" against a clean source to enable TER16x32 (Library routines >> Select compiled-in fonts, the interactive menu will tell you that you will need this. Although you can still unselect this compiled-in fonts after enabling TER16x32)

A v2 has been built successfully on the Disco test machine at hand:
u@ubuntu:~$ cat /boot/config-5.0.0-9-generic | grep FONT
CONFIG_FONT_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_FONTS=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y
# CONFIG_FONT_6x11 is not set
# CONFIG_FONT_7x14 is not set
# CONFIG_FONT_PEARL_8x8 is not set

# CONFIG_FONT_10x18 is not set
# CONFIG_FONT_SUN8x16 is not set

Will try again on our build server.
