<title>Description</title>
<para>The <filename>/etc/vconsole.conf</filename> file
configures the virtual console, i.e. keyboard mapping
and console font.</para>
<para>The basic file format of the
<filename>vconsole.conf</filename> is a set of
environment-like shell-compatible variable
assignments. It is possible to source the
configuration from shell scripts, however, beyond mere
variable assignments no shell features are supported,
allowing applications to read the file without
containing a shell compatible execution engine.</para>
<para>Note that the kernel command line options
<varname>vconsole.keymap=</varname>,
<varname>vconsole.keymap.toggle=</varname>,
<varname>vconsole.font=</varname>,
<varname>vconsole.font.map=</varname>,
<varname>vconsole.font.unimap=</varname> can be used
to override the console settings at boot.</para>
<para>Depending on the operating system other
configuration files might be checked for configuration
of the virtual console as well, however only as
fallback.</para>
