    Default systemd-vconsole-setup failed ( Fonts will not be copied to remaining consoles)

    hi there everyone, I have a problem with vconsole I can't find the solution I tried everything out there on the web.

    this is the error:
    Code:

    this is the output of localectl

    ## Default:     ""
    #
    # Some fonts come without a unicode map.
    # (.psfu fonts supposedly have it, others often not.)
    # You can then specify the unicode mapping of your font 
    # explicitly. (/usr/share/kbd/unimaps/)
    # Normally not needed.

    #
    # Most programs output 8 bit characters, so you need a table to
    # translate those characters into unicode. That one can be specified
    # here. (/usr/share/kbd/consoletrans/)
    # (Note: If your console is in utf-8 mode you don't need this.)
    # If your code does not use a unicode mapping at all (because you
    # e.g. explicitly specified UNICODEMAP="none") you may circumvent
    # the translation via unicode, but load a map which directly maps
    # 8 bit output of your program to a font position.
    #
    CONSOLE_SCREENMAP=""
    
    ## Type:        string
    ## Default:     ""
    #
    # for some fonts the console has to be initialized with CONSOLE_MAGIC.
    # CONSOLE_MAGIC can be empty or have the values "(B", ")B", "(K" or ")K".
    # Normally not needed (automatically handled by setfont).
    #
    CONSOLE_MAGIC=""
    
    # Encoding used for output of non-ascii characters.
    #
    CONSOLE_ENCODING="UTF-8"
    CONSOLE_SCREENMAP should not be necessary since I'm using utf-8

    I don't know how to solve it really I exhausted every possible solution out there in the web.

    thanks for reading.

    I think I have a related problem. Since Tumbleweed snapshot 20170822 I've had a boot failure setting up vconsole. As you can see here:

    Code:
    eric@linux-epth:~$ sudo systemctl status systemd-vconsole-setup.service
    ● systemd-vconsole-setup.service - Setup Virtual Console
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-vconsole-setup.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)
       Active: inactive (dead) since Thu 2017-08-24 20:04:51 CDT; 26min ago
         Docs: man:systemd-vconsole-setup.service(8)
               man:vconsole.conf(5)
      Process: 467 ExecStart=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-vconsole-setup (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
     Main PID: 467 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    
    
    Aug 24 20:04:51 linux-epth systemd-vconsole-setup[467]: KD_FONT_OP_SET failed, fonts will not be copied to tty7: Invalid argument
    Aug 24 20:04:51 linux-epth systemd[1]: Started Setup Virtual Console.
    eric@linux-epth:~$
    Could this be from a change to dracut?

    Thank you.

    Default Re: systemd-vconsole-setup failed ( Fonts will not be copied to remaining consoles)

    Is there some reason why you set your font in /etc/sysconfig/console?

    In the MAN page for vconsole.conf
    OPTIONS The following options are understood:

    KEYMAP=, KEYMAP_TOGGLE=
    Configures the key mapping table for the keyboard. KEYMAP= defaults to "us" if not
    set. The KEYMAP_TOGGLE= can be used to configure a second toggle keymap and is by
    default unset.

    FONT=, FONT_MAP=, FONT_UNIMAP=
    Configures the console font, the console map and the unicode font map.

    EXAMPLE
    Example 1. German keyboard and console

    /etc/vconsole.conf:

    KEYMAP=de-latin1 FONT=latarcyrheb-sun16
    So,
    You can try the same...
    Did you modify /etc/sysconfig/console yourself, or was that set up by YaST or something else?

    Also, it might be helpful to understand that configuring in vconsole.conf sets configurations when the object is first set up while sysconfig generally <re-writes> or otherwise modifies default configurations... Of course, it's better to try to set things up a certain way from the beginning but sysconfig is a very convenient way to configure when it works(more or less centralized location for custom settings).

    I have the same problem as reported by eatobin. Admittedly, it is not exactly the same as the original one by rocketbones. Similar to eatobin, it started on August 28, when I updated Tumbleweed using the KDE systray app. I figured it might go away by applying approx. 1000 updates today via
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change
    . However, the red FAILED message during boot-up persists. Thus I should like to bump this thread in order to maybe get to a solution.

    The full error message during boot-up reads:
    Code:
    [FAILED] Failed to start Setup Virtual Console.
    See 'systemctl status systemd-vconsole-setup.service' for details.
    Starting Show Plymouth Boot Screen...
    This is the systemctl report the system suggests to visit:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl status systemd-vconsole-setup.service
    ● systemd-vconsole-setup.service - Setup Virtual Console
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-vconsole-setup.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)
       Active: inactive (dead) since Wed 2017-09-06 12:08:03 CEST; 14min ago
         Docs: man:systemd-vconsole-setup.service(8)
               man:vconsole.conf(5)
      Process: 405 ExecStart=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-vconsole-setup (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
     Main PID: 405 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    
    Sep 06 12:08:03 susytmblwdke systemd[1]: Started Setup Virtual Console.
    Answering the question asked in the previous post: No, I didn't change anything myself, it is just a Tumbleweed (German) installed fresh sometime in July and updated continuously, mostly via the KDE systray app.

    I also see this issue on Tumbleweed KDE. I have not changed anything and it started a few days ago after an update and re-boot. So far it does not seem to have had any adverse effect on my system that I can determine (yet!).

    Thanks for your confirmation. Shall we wait and hope the issue will go away with some update round, as I did wait one or two weeks already, or shall we file a bug report to openSUSE?

    I did file other bug reports in the past, but it's tedious - checking for duplicates, the right addressee...

    Just checked the Bugzilla. Tobin (eatobin?) has reported it on 08/27. Status still is "new" in Bugzilla. The ensuing conversations don't come to a definite resolution, at least as far as I understand them. There are indications what in fact might be the culprit. Thanks, eatobin, for your efforts with this issue!

    Bug #1055834 seems to be the one for future reference.

    The a.m. bug has persisted on my system as well as for other people since Augzst 2017. In fact, it has been reported to show up for someone else when updating on Jan 10, 2018; cf. the Bugzilla under Bug #1055834.

    Thus I should like to ask for advice in case somebody has found a solution. I figured to try and bump this thread for this purpose. I will also try and bump the a.m. Bugzilla Bug number.

    Thanks for any advice available.

    I'm having this "issue" in Leap 15. In fact, I use openSUSE from long time ago and I always had this error message in my system. The same with "watchdog didn't stop" when I shutdown the computer. Ugly stuffs.
