I recently installed kmscon on my system. Now I want to configure it to use a different keyboard layout (neo2) and, while I am at it, a different font, too. I stumbled across this question here when searching for configuration file examples. But nowhere I could find an example configuration file or instructions how to format the configuration. Can you point me to any additional resource or give me an example?

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.

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.
