Is there any way so I can change the height and width of tty consoles (or make smaller font for it or change the resolution of tty's contents)?

As you know they are fixed size and I want to run a program on them which is bigger than their size.

Thanks in advances.

By "tty consoles," do you mean the terminals that you open on your desktop? If so, they can be moved, resized or maximized as needed, and the font can be changed by editing the program's Preferences, usually accessed from the program's Edit Menu.

Of course I don't mean the gnome terminals! I don't have graphical user interface I mean tty[1-6]. the terminal which you can switch between them by ctrl+F[1-6]

Sorry, but judging only by what you wrote above I had no way of knowing what you meant, or that you didn't have access to a GUI.

there's no reason to be sorry dear! But resize terminals in GUI user interface is just too easy to ask! :)
