setupcon - sets up the font and the keyboard on Linux console


setupcon [ option ]... [ variant ... ]


setupcon is a program for fast and easy setup of the font and the keyboard on the Linux console.


-k, --keyboard-only
Setup the keyboard only, do not setup the font.
-f, --font-only
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.
-v, --verbose
Be more verbose. Use this option if something goes wrong.
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 configuration.
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.
-h, --help
Display usage information.
Specifies which configuration file to use. By default the configuration 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.
