i am not using x11, so there is no desktop mode.
my regular unix (cli) console is running at some kind-a high resolution
ctrl + alt + [1,2,3,4,5,6] all have that same high resolution mode
activated on them.

If I get you correctly, you want a tty?
Ctrl+Alt + [1,2,3,4,5,6] is tty mode which is fairly low res.
Ctrl + Alt + 7 gets you back to the desktop mode.

hi, i had been working with the high resolution
of the console as
delivered with ubuntu server distribution, hated it, but had to make do
since i couldn't find material which could show me a way to switch off
the 'vga' mode.
last night, i migrated away from ubuntu, it's too big for my tastes.
on debian jessie, and this too has that same high resolution console.
i have tinkered around with the console-setup and grub files which only
afforded me a regular console on grub, but after grub transfers command
to the operating system, i am still stuck with a high resolution
is there any solution for this problem?
and ah, yes, i still work at the console, no x11 for me.
