Thread: How to change font in console

    Default How to change font in console

    Hello,

    I have a problem with czech special chars in console (I can see only squares instead of the chars which are placed on 12345.. keys). When I change the font manually:

    Code:
    setfont /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/lat2a-16.psfu.gz
    it works.

    Where could I change the console font permanently?

    I have tried it in
    Code:
    /etc/sysconfig/console
    but it ignores the settings.

    If you login with your username and password when using the console, you could put the setfont statement in your .bashrc

    Ad 1: found this
    You could also put XKBOPTIONS=compose:ralt in /etc/default/keyboard and run
    Ad 2: Use Yast to set the global keyboard setting to English (US), use the GNOME control center to set the keyboard layout used in the deskop environment
