Hi Neil

form the python file. I guess the "more80.py" (I am not good in python )
is cut the un-fuzzy-font.png then display it.

we need find a 4x8 console font file.copy the font to /usr/share/consolefonts/
  #setfont FONTNAME

I found there is debian package: ttf-atarismall-2.1, it's 4x8 font.
but it's X11 font :
   $ file atari-small.bdf
       atari-small.bdf: X11 BDF font text
   $ file atari-small.sfd
       atari-small.sfd: Spline Font Database  version 2.0

but we need psf font format in NanoNote framebuffer console
I have no idea how to convert the bdf/sfd to psf format :(

Hi Mirko
how about select [setfont] and [loadfont] in BusyBox?
I just notice those are not select by OpenWrt default.
