systemd-vconsole-setup.service, systemd-vconsole-setup — Configure the virtual consoles



/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-vconsole-setup [TTY]


systemd-vconsole-setup sets up and configures either all virtual consoles, or — if the optional TTY parameter is provided — a specific one. When the system is booting up it's called by systemd-udevd(8) during VT console subsystem initialization. Also, systemd-localed.service(8) invokes it as needed when language or console changes are made. Internally, this program calls loadkeys(1) and setfont(8).

Execute systemctl restart systemd-vconsole-setup.service in order to apply any manual changes made to /etc/vconsole.conf.

See vconsole.conf(5) for information about the configuration files and kernel command line options understood by this program.
