systemd-vconsole-setup is a helper used to prepare 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 () during vtconsole
subsystem initialization. Systemd(TM) also calls it internally as
needed via systemd-vconsole-setup.service. The helper calls
loadkeys(1) and setfont(8) internally.
You may want to use this helper whenever you change vconsole.conf to
refresh the settings on your consoles — either through the systemctlrestart / systemctl start command or directly through the executable.
See vconsole.conf(5) for information about the configuration files
and kernel command line options understood by this program.
