===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/}}.
For displaying characters such as ''č, ć, ž, đ, ''or ''š,'' use the font {{Filename|lat2-16.psfu.gz}}:
And set the proper keymap, in this case:
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.}}
See: [[Mkinitcpio#Configuring the HOOKS|Mkinitcpio: Configuring the HOOKS]]
