       setupcon - sets up the font and the keyboard on Linux console

       setupcon [ option ]... [ variant ... ]

       setupcon  is  a	program for fast and easy setup of the font and the keyboard on the Linux

       -k, --keyboard-only
	      Setup the keyboard only, do not setup the font.

       -f, --font-only
	      Setup the font only, do not setup the keyboard.

	      Do not check whether we are on the console.  Notice that you can be forced to hard-
	      reboot  your  computer  if  you  run  setupcon  with this option and you are on a X

       -v, --verbose
	      Be more verbose.	 Use this option if something goes wrong.

       --save If you want to use setupcon early in the boot process, it is possible that /usr  is
	      not  yet mounted and the required data are not available.  This option makes setup-
	      con copy the required data in /etc/console-setup in  order  to  make  it	available
	      before  /usr  is	mounted.  If you use setupcon early in the boot process, then use
	      this option whenever you change the console configuration.

	      Same like --save, but do not setup the keyboard and the font.  This option  can  be
	      useful if you run setupcon in a X server.

       -h, --help
	      Display usage information.

	      Specifies  which	configuration  file to use.  By default the configuration file of
	      setupcon is /etc/default/console-setup but if you use  e.g.  "chukchi"  as  variant
	      then  the  configuration	file  will  be	/etc/default/console-setup.chukchi.  This
	      allows you to have several different configurations  -  for  example  one  for  the
	      Chukchi language and another in /etc/default/console-setup for your default config-

       Most of the time you invoke setupcon without arguments.	Please look at	the  README  file
       for more information.
