While I got the X keyboard layout right on my own after I fixed that stupid typo, I still can't set the console charset, key map, font map, or whatever you want to call it; even considering all [info] [on] the Arch wiki.
For example, if I click the key for Ç (c cedilla), I get a damn
A with a trema),
Tab completion also gives this wrong non ASCII character on a TTY.
I know the keyboard is right, if I pipe correct UTF-8 characters to a TTY, I get them wrong, and if I do it the other way around, they become right (say, to
I heard the console only has support for 128 (or is it 256?) characters at a time, but those can be set. I tried setting
/etc/vconsole.conf, with no results. The file is now:
KEYMAP=pt-latin9 FONT=Lat2-Terminus16 FONT_MAP=8859-2
I think would solve the problem are those
MAP variables. The worst is that these variables are poorly documented, both in the Arch Wiki, and in the
vconsole.conf manual pages:
FONT=, FONT_MAP=, FONT_UNIMAP= Configures the console font, the console map and the unicode font map.
How can I set them?
Regarding other methods, I'm a bit confused of how I can apply what is in some of the
articles. So far, I have simply copied
gunziped it, and read it while scratching my head.
I'm sorry, even though I've had this problem since I have Arch as my system, this is to hard for me to find the solution on my own; so I hope you can help me.
