PROGRAM:

NAME


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

SYNOPSIS


setupcon [OPTION]... [VARIANT]

DESCRIPTION


setupcon is a program for fast and easy setup of the font and the keyboard on the console.
Most of the time you invoke setupcon without arguments. The keyboard configuration is
specified in ~/.keyboard or /etc/default/keyboard. The font configuration is specified in
~/.console-setup or /etc/default/console-setup. Consult keyboard(5) and console-setup(5)
for instructions how to configure these two files.

If you have to switch often between different encodings, keyboards or languages, you can
prepare several alternative configuration files for setupcon. Suppose that most of the
time you will use Greek language with Greek keyboard layout, but sometimes you need to
type in German with German keyboard layout. In this situation you should customize the
main configuration files (keyboard and console-setup) for Greek. Create also alternative
configuration files for German named keyboard.german and console-setup.german. Then in
order to configure the console for Greek you will simply run the command with no
arguments: setupcon and in order to configure the console for German you will use
setupcon german.

OPTIONS


-v, --verbose
Be more verbose. Use this option if something goes wrong or while experimenting
with the configuration files.

-k, --keyboard-only
Setup the keyboard only, do not setup the font.

-f, --font-only
Setup the font only, do not setup the keyboard.

--force
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 the screen is
controlled by a X server.

--save This option can be useful if you want to use setupcon early in the boot process
while /usr is not yet mounted and the required data are not available. This option
will make setupcon copy the required files in /etc/console-setup/ in order to make
them available before /usr is mounted. If you use setupcon early in the boot
process, then you should run it with this option after every change of the console
configuration.

--save-only
The same as --save, but does not setup the keyboard and the font. This option can
be useful if you want to save the required files while the screen is controlled by
a X server.

-h, --help
Display usage information.

VARIANT
Specifies which configuration file to use. By default the configuration files of
setupcon are named console-setup and keyboard but if you use e.g. chukchi as
VARIANT then the configuration files will be console-setup.chukchi and
keyboard.chukchi. In this way you can have easy access to several different
configurations - for example one for the Chukchi language and another for the
default configuration.
