Maybe the selected layout doesn't support these symbols? Please send the
contents of /etc/default/keyboard and /etc/default/console-setup.
I found that the problem must be coming from usplash. The console font seems to be well set during boot, but near the end of the boot process the font appears to be reset. After removing usplash this does not happen anymore and the keyboard is well configured.
In any case (with or without usplash): I noticed that at a tty's login prompt (and only there), once I type an accented character (á, é, ...), a 'ç', an 'º' or an 'ª' (among others), I can't use the backspace key anymore. Instead, three lozengues are shown for each time I press the backspace key.
If logging in fails, the backspace key will be usable on the following login retries regardless of the characters typed. After a successful login, everything seems to be working well. This is probably not related to console-setup, but in that case I really don't know to which package I should report it. Even if this is related with console-setup, it's very likely that this should be reported as a new bug (?).
This bug is already reported (#377426). It is not related to
Thanks for pointing that out.
Thanks and regards,
