These are fixed-width fonts suitable for terminals, editors, etc. If you have to work for extended time in front of monitor (i.e. over eight hours), you may find that using of these fonts reduces your eyes-fatigue.
Note: You might want to use the package fonts-terminus-otb instead of this package because the fonts in this package are used by the X server directly. Several modern applications will ignore such fonts.
This package contains normal and bold fonts in the following sizes: 6x12, 8x14, 8x16, 10x20, 11x22, 12x24, 14x28 and 16x32 and supports the following encodings: ISO10646-1, ISO8859-1, ISO8859-2, ISO8859-5, ISO8859-9, ISO8859-13, ISO8859-15, ISO8859-16, KOI8-R, KOI8-U, CP1251 and PT154.
