‘Set the proper key map’?

FONT_MAP does not set the key map.

I put the following code into /etc/profile.d/locale.sh:

(case "${LANG}" in
pl_*) FONT=lat2-16;;
*) let 0;;
esac && setfont $FONT)

This allows the user to use a different locale than the system default. Of course, the list of supported languages must be extended.

Is xset fp rehash required?

When installing local fonts, this page suggests adding the following the .xinitrc file:

xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local 
xset fp rehash

My understanding is that xset fp rehash is only required to reload the font path on an active X session, therefore not needed in the .xinitrc file.
