kbdmap, vidfont -- front end for syscons and vt SYNOPSIS
kbdmap [-K] [-V] [-d | -default] [-h | -help] [-l | -lang language] [-p | -print] [-r | -restore] [-s | -show] [-v | -verbose] DESCRIPTION
The kbdmap utility allows easy setting of available keymaps. The vidfont command allows the setting of fonts. Both examine a database for the keymaps and fonts. Descriptions are in English by default, but may also be in other languages. These programs are interactive and expect to run in a terminal to get required input (e.g., a keymap selection) from the user. It is strongly recommended to not choose MSDOS codepage keymaps or fonts. Use the ISO standard version if available! X11 does not support MSDOS codepage. The following options are available: -K Run as command kbdmap. -V Run as command vidfont. -d, -default Use default language. Ignore LANG environment variable. -h, -help Print options and exit. -l, -lang language Use language for description and menu. -p, -print Print description of available keymaps or fonts to stdout and exit. -r, -restore Load default font from /etc/rc.conf. -s, -show Show currently supported languages and exit. -v, -verbose More warnings.
