       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


       -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

       -v, --verbose
              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 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


       Most of the time you invoke setupcon without arguments.  Please look at  the  README  file
       for more information.
