NAME         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top


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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.
