console-setup 1.191ubuntu3 source package in Ubuntu


console-setup (1.191ubuntu3) eoan; urgency=medium

  * No change rebuild to include all previous changes

console-setup (1.191ubuntu2) eoan; urgency=medium

  * Call setupcon --force only when debian-installer is active
    and always redirect output to /dev/null to not block. (LP: #520546)

console-setup (1.191ubuntu1) eoan; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - debian/clean: Delete Keyboard/tree-keymaps/ on clean
    - Add an apport hook.
    - If the locale is C during configuration, only set CHARMAP to ISO-8859-15
      on kFreeBSD; otherwise restore the previous behaviour from before the
      kFreeBSD port of using UTF-8 in that case.
    - Change the default font from Fixed to VGA for Lat15; while it's not
      entirely complete, it looks better and is largely good enough.
    - Set keymap and font in the initramfs if possible and sensible.
    - debian/vtrgb, debian/vtrgb.vga,
      debian/console-setup-linux.setvtrgb.service, debian/rules,
      debian/console-setup-linux.postinst: use Ubuntu's virtual terminal color
      scheme by default, with a VGA color scheme available as an alternative.
    - Handle unattended upgrades without breaking plymouth when updating
      console fonts.
    - Tolerate absence of setupcon in postinst scripts.  Should be fixed by
      refactoring to not have a keyboard-configuration package that needs to
      call setupcon without depending on it.
    - Don't copy keyboard-configuration questions to /target in OEM mode.
      oem-config will ask them later, and copying these confuses it.
    - Added templates for keyboard detection.
    - debian/control: drop freebsd-specific packages.
    - debian/control: we also need xkb-data-i18n as a Build-Depends-Indep to
      build a complete set of translated keyboard layout/variant names.
    - If the detect-keyboard debconf plugin is available
      (cdebconf-newt-detect-keys in the installer), then offer to use it to
      detect the keyboard layout.
    - keyboard-configuration.config: While sourcing config files to re-seed
      debconf, treat missing XKBOPTIONS as empty.
    - Fix default keyboard selection for language/country combinations
      lacking a proper combined locale.
    - debian/keyboard-configuration.config: lower the priority for the layout
    - Map ppc64el/* to XKBMODEL=pc105.
    - Set default layout for Kurdish to tr(ku).
    - Set default for Dutch to us(intl), not just us.
    - Set default layout for Vietnam to 'us'.
    - debian/keyboard-configuration.config: Drop the xkb-keymap bits once
      again as we're not ready for those yet, as it's currently causing an
      invalid default layout in the installer.
    - keyboard-configuration.{config,templates}: There is no good default
      for layout toggling, stop pretending there is.  Console users can set
      one with dpkg-reconfigure or editing /etc/defaults/keyboard
    - Quiet config/postinst when we have no USB devices.
    - debian/preprocessor: revert the removal of keyboard names (for size) of
      console-setup-udeb: we do need those, since we don't use the simplified
      xkb-keymap template from Debian just yet: this way we can still show
      country/language names when selecting a keyboard, layout or variant.
    - debian/rules: revert hard-coding of a list of "debconf-selectable"
      layouts for the udebs, since we don't use this debconf question in Ubuntu
      and all layouts are selectable.
    - Make COPYRIGHT a symlink to debian/copyright.
    - Don't cat over the keymaps; they're already moved to the right place.
    - Add Keyboard/Makefile rule to build pc105.tree.
    - Include pc105.tree for ubiquity; make sure it gets built.
    - Fix command injection in ckbcomp.
    - Generate a locale locally for translating keyboard names in
    - kbdnames-maker: Call `{bind,}textdomain` after switching locale.
    - Keyboard/Makefile: make sure is built with accurate data
      from xkb-data.
    - xmlreader, Added model entry to skip model selection.
    - Make sure we give a meaningful name to ch layouts: "Switzerland" instead
      of "German (Switzerland), since it includes French too.
    - setupcon:
      - use only /run for tempfiles with /tmp as a non-root fallback.
      - handle compressed console maps and font files.
      - Map XKBMODEL=SKIP to '' for compatibility with existing
      - the variables are taken from a config file which, if changed,
        invalidates the cache.
      - there is only ever one keyboard map per system.
      - the system should not have to resolve filenames to find the keymap
        cache on boot.
      - Explicitly exit 0, so that postinsts don't fail in the event that
        loadkeys can't find a console.
  * Dropped changes:
    - drop handling of obsolete upstart jobs, not needed post-18.04.
    - drop breaks/replaces on ancient keyboard-configuration package.
    - keyboard-configuration.config: drop layout migration code, which
      definitely predates bionic.
  * debian/console-setup.initramfs-top: only ever initialize /dev/tty1.  We
    do not ever use more than 1 VT in the initramfs, and we reinitialize
    anyway from the rootfs so this saves us no time (and in fact wastes a
    lot of time in some configurations).  LP: #1823327.

bdf2psf: font converter to generate console fonts from BDF source fonts

 This package provides a command-line converter that can be used in
 scripts to build console fonts from BDF sources automatically. The
 converter comes with a collection of font encodings that cover many
 of the world's languages. The output font can use a different
 character encoding from the input. When the source font does not
 define a glyph for a particular symbol in the encoding table, that
 glyph position in the console font is not wasted but used for another
 When deciding about the position in the font for a particular glyph,
 the converter takes into account that in text video modes the video
 adapter copies the eighth column of the glyph matrix of symbols
 positioned in the pseudographic area to the ninth column. In order to
 create fonts for text video modes, the width of the glyph matrix of
 the source BDF font should be seven, eight, or nine pixels; otherwise the
 converter creates fonts suitable for framebuffer only.

console-setup: console font and keymap setup program

 This package provides the console with the same keyboard
 configuration scheme as the X Window System. As a result, there is no
 need to duplicate or change the keyboard files just to make simple
 customizations such as the use of dead keys, the key functioning as
 AltGr or Compose key, the key(s) to switch between Latin and
 non-Latin mode, etc.
 The package also installs console fonts supporting many of the
 world's languages. It provides an unified set of font faces - the
 classic VGA, the simplistic Fixed, and the cleaned Terminus,
 TerminusBold and TerminusBoldVGA.

console-setup-amiga-ekmap: encoded Linux keyboard layouts for Amiga keyboards
console-setup-ataritt-ekmap: encoded Linux keyboard layouts for Atari TT keyboards
console-setup-linux: Linux specific part of console-setup

 This package includes fonts in psf format and definitions of various
 8-bit charmaps.

console-setup-linux-charmaps-udeb: Linux 8-bit charmaps for console-setup-udeb
console-setup-linux-fonts-udeb: Linux console fonts for Debian Installer
console-setup-macintoshold-ekmap: encoded Linux keyboard layouts for old-style Macintosh keyboards
console-setup-mini: console font and keymap setup program - reduced version for Linux

 This package provides the console with the same keyboard
 configuration scheme as the X Window System. As a result, there is no
 need to duplicate or change the keyboard files just to make simple
 customizations such as the use of dead keys, the key functioning as
 AltGr or Compose key, the key(s) to switch between Latin and
 non-Latin mode, etc.
 This package can be useful for handhelds or other devices with small
 storage space.

console-setup-pc-ekbd: encoded FreeBSD keyboard layouts for PC keyboards
console-setup-pc-ekmap: encoded Linux keyboard layouts for PC keyboards
console-setup-sun4-ekmap: encoded Linux keyboard layouts for Sun4 keyboards
console-setup-sun5-ekmap: encoded Linux keyboard layouts for Sun5 keyboards
console-setup-udeb: Configure the keyboard

 Keyboard configurator for Debian Installer based on console-setup

keyboard-configuration: system-wide keyboard preferences

 This package maintains the keyboard preferences in
 /etc/default/keyboard. Other packages can use the information
 provided by this package in order to configure the keyboard on the
 console or in X Window.
