console-tools config w. framebuffers
Because of a quirk (vc's and displaying graphical characters to make
boxes ;-) ) I got the console-tools package to show graphical characters.
I put this in /etc/console-tools/config:
Works great on vc#1, the first one.
Now the config file warns that with framebuffers this only is good for
vc #1. OK. So I tried this to get my characters to show up on all vc's:
which, sad to say, does NOT work. Can anybody tell me what I do wrong?
This is what console-tools spells out in the header of the config file:
# You can also specify per-VC settings by suffixing variable names as in
# the examples below. This only works on framebuffer devices.
# - When using the new framebuffer devices, the "global setting" for a font
# only affects the current console (ie., at boot-time, the first one)
# - ACM setting involves 2 steps (maybe loading a user ACM, and activating
# it on a given charset slot - see charset(1) for details), the 1st of which
# affects the entire system, but the 2nd of which only affects the current
# VC (ie., at boot-time, the first one). So that if you want to use the
# ACM on all VCs, you have to specify "APP_CHARSET_MAP_vc<N>=user" for all
# relevant values of <N>.
