.SH NAME
setupcon \- sets up the font and the keyboard on Linux console
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B setupcon [
.I option
.B ]... [
.I variant 
.B ... ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B setupcon
is a program for fast and easy setup of the font and the keyboard on
the Linux console.
.SH OPTIONS
.IP "-k, --keyboard-only"
Setup the keyboard only, do not setup the font.
.IP "-f, --font-only"
Setup the font only, do not setup the keyboard.
.IP "--force"
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 server.
.IP "-v, --verbose"
Be more verbose.   Use this option if something goes wrong.
.IP "--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 setupcon 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.
.IP "--save-only"
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.
.IP "-h, --help"
Display usage information.
.IP "variant"
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
configuration.
.SH BASIC USAGE
Most of the time you invoke setupcon without arguments.  Please look
at the README file for more information.
