First you need to install console-setup. Console-setup-mini supports
limited set of fonts. Then use "dpkg-reconfigure console-setup" in
order to test the fontsets provided by console-setup. They are VGA,
Fixed, Terminus and TerminusBold. After dpkg-reconfigure you can use
setupcon to activate the changes and to test the result. If you are not
satisfied with any of the fonts in console-setup, then open
/etc/default/console-setup in a text editor and add the following line:

Ouch! Console-setup and console-setup-mini had to share the same
startup files. I couldn't reproduce this because I forgot to --purge
console-setup so my console-setup-mini is using the startup files of
console-setup. I will upload a fixed package today.

Yes, thank you. But there is another problem to solve: Why you system
is using console-setup-mini instead of console-setup?
