Console (Virtual Terminals)

The default font used in the console and in virtual terminals uses the ASCII character set. To use other fonts change the Template:Codeline and Template:Codeline settings in Template:Filename. Different fonts can be found in Template:Filename directory and keymaps can be found in the subdirectories of Template:Filename.

Example

For displaying characters such as č, ć, ž, đ, or š, use the font Template:Filename:

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 Template:Codeline hook to Template:Filename:

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.
