===Console (Virtual Terminals)===
 
  
<!-- should be a list instead of explaining configuration. to merge with Fonts Configuration. -->
 
The default font used in the console and in virtual terminals uses the ASCII character set. To use other fonts change the {{Codeline|CONSOLEFONT<nowiki>=</nowiki>}} and {{Codeline|CONSOLEMAP<nowiki>=</nowiki>}} settings in {{Filename|/etc/rc.conf}}. Different fonts can be found in {{Filename|/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/}} directory and keymaps can be found in the subdirectories of {{Filename|/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/}}.
 
 
===Example===
 
For displaying characters such as ''č, ć, ž, đ, ''or ''š,'' use the font {{Filename|lat2-16.psfu.gz}}:
 
CONSOLEFONT="lat2-16.psfu.gz"
 
 
And set the proper keymap, in this case:
 
CONSOLEMAP="8859-2"
 
 
To use the specified font in early userspace (early in the bootup process), add the {{Codeline|keymap}} hook to {{Filename|/etc/mkinitcpio.conf}}:
 
HOOKS="base udev autodetect pata scsi sata filesystems '''keymap'''"
 
 
Then rebuild the image:
 
# mkinitcpio -p kernel26
 
 
{{Note| Repeat if you have more than one kernel package installed and want the same behavior for each kernel.}}
