setupcon [ option ]... [ variant ... ]
setupcon is a program for fast and easy setup of the font and the key-
board on the Linux console.
Setup the keyboard only, do not setup the font.
Setup the font only, do not setup the keyboard.
Do not check whether we are on the console. Notice that you can
be forced to hard-reboot your computer if you run setupcon with
this option and you are on a X server.
Be more verbose. Use this option if something goes wrong.
--save If you want to use setupcon early in the boot process, it is
possible that /usr is not yet mounted and the required data are
not available. This option makes setupcon copy the required
data in /etc/console-setup in order to make it available before
/usr is mounted. If you use setupcon early in the boot process,
then use this option whenever you change the console configura-
Same like --save, but do not setup the keyboard and the font.
This option can be useful if you run setupcon in a X server.
Display usage information.
Specifies which configuration file to use. By default the con-
figuration file of setupcon is /etc/default/console-setup but if
you use e.g. "chukchi" as variant then the configuration file
will be /etc/default/console-setup.chukchi. This allows you to
have several different configurations - for example one for the
Chukchi language and another in /etc/default/console-setup for
your default configuration.
Most of the time you invoke setupcon without arguments. Please look at
the README file for more information.
