[solved] console font Terminus ter-112n doesn't set

hi,

I'm very glad to be able to install Arch on an HP T5455.

but  ter-112n.psf.gz font doesn't set automatically at boot.

here's what journalctl says :

# journalctl | grep [fF]ail
janv. 18 00:28:53 archlinux systemd-vconsole-setup[183]: /usr/bin/setfont failed with exit status 66.

/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/ter-112n.psf.gz does exist.

I already stfw, without solving the trouble.
I configured  grub gfxpayload to fit my screen.
I added

vconsole.font=/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/ter-112n.psf.gz

still no ter-112n until I setfont manually.

any idea ?

at least, what could be an equivalent : a sans serif 12 pixels font that will work.

There might be the same bug at work as for keyboard layouts, just uncompress ter-112n.psf.gz
und try to use the uncompressed one.

Re: [solved] console font Terminus ter-112n doesn't set

I was having a similar issue, where my virtual console keymap was not being set at boot despite my /etc/vconsole.conf being properly configured. I can confirm that uncompressing the corresponding keymap file solved the issue.

I stumbled onto a different way of solving it, though. Adding the 'keymap' module to my /etc/mkinitcpio.conf (mentioned here) and regenerating the initramfs got my keyboard layout to correctly get set at boot, even after I removed the previously mentioned uncompressed keymap file. I tried with the sd-vconsole module first, but that didn't work. I imagine the consolefont module would solve OP's issue.
