When in doubt, start with the man page, man kmscon in this instance. Although David Herrmann never got around to what kmscon bug #71 originally asked for, the kmscon manual page provides both an example configuration file and the information that any kmscon command-line option is also a kmscon.conf setting.

Further investigation brought me to this page. Now my config file looks like the following: # config file for kmscon linux console xkb-layout=de xkb-variant=neo font-name=Inconsolata font-size=10 This answers both my questions.

This may be false hope, but undo seems to be possible with the 7.16 RPM source from Fedora, likely the Debian packages sources, with the Yank and Pull features, and some strategic tweaks. For example, the = command, in sc.c, line 1140, one line change, case '=': if (locked_cell(currow, curcol)) break; ...

If you use SSH, the user's shell as specified in /etc/passwd will be executed upon login. Set it to /bin/bash and you're done. You can set this with this command (as root): usermod -s /bin/bash <username>

X11 (classic) Run the program xev from a terminal to see the keycode sent by the CapsLock key.

lsof doesn't show anything with /dev/fb0 open. It won't. There's a terminal emulator program built into the Linux kernel. It doesn't manifest as a running process with open file handles. It's layered on top of the framebuffer and the input event subsystem, which it uses internal kernel interfaces to access. It presents itself to application-mode ...

If this happens often, consider running your emacs session in the Gnome Terminal withintmux. That way you can connect from the console with tmux attach and save whatever needs saving. If you don't use tmux, reptyr can allow you to reconnect the emacs session to your console for further editing. Setting emacs` autosave might help as well in case you have ...

The problem here is that by default Arch boots up with kernel modesetting for the display (and console), using the open source nouveau driver. It seems that the driver included in this kernel doesn't support your graphics chipset, and rather than fallback, it simply gives you no console display. To disable kernel modesetting you can edit the boot options in ...

yes, outside X-server, in tty, try command: cat /dev/urandom >/dev/fb0 if colourfull pixels fills the screen, then your setup is ok, and you can try playing with this small script: #!/usr/bin/env bash fbdev=/dev/fb0 ; width=1280 ; bpp=4 color="\x00\x00\xFF\x00" #red colored function pixel() { xx=$1 ; yy=$2 printf "$color" | dd bs=$bpp ...

U-Boot is doing exactly what it should (silencing the output) with the following command: #define CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS \ "silent=1\0" \ seems like this happens only on my system.

The TERM variable is interpreted by each application, via system libraries. Its value is a name which is looked up in a database. Depending on the Unix flavor and its age, the database can be either termcap (traditional, not used much nowadays) or terminfo (modern, inasmuch as it was meant as an improvement on termcap, and used by most systems nowadays). ...
