After installing Ubuntu 9.04 setup your terminal

After Ubuntu installation a real developer needs to setup the terminal:

Terminal -> Preferences

Click on “Unnamed” profile and select:

Custom font: Ubuntu Mono Regular size 15

Click on “Colors” tab, disable the “Use colors from system theme” and select:

“Green on black”

Click on “Scrolling” tab disable “Limit scrollback to:”

Close and you are done.

If you want other good font to use on Linux terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install fonts-inconsolata

I got the Inconsolata font suggestion from this site (its fonts packages are outdated) http://www.webupd8.org/2010/07/7-of-best-ubuntu-terminal-fixed-width.html
