Hi Helge

I removed the "In-Reply-To:" header, to get a new thread ... I hope you
don't mind ... :)

Yes, both on console and X, on both places via <Left-Apple>-E

On X (that is KDE/KDM), according to the KDE control-center, 

 General:		Arial 9 (numbers here and following mean "size")
 Fixed width:		Monospace 9
 Toolbar:		Arial 9
 Menu:			Arial 9
 Window Title:		Sans Serif 9	       
 Taskbar:		Arial 9
 Desktop:		Arial 9

Please let me know if you need more details (Font packages installed,
etc ..)

On console, /etc/console-tools/config is responsible for the settings,

Excerpt from /etc/console-tools/config

# Turn on numlock by default

I just looked at my notes concerning consolechars: They say (and sorry
if you know 'consolechars' already .. ):


consolechars --tty=/dev/tty3 -vf lat9w-16

consolechars --no-act --tty=/dev/tty3 -vf lat9w-10

consolechars --default-font


[notes like above simply help me forget man pages, once I found how some
 tool works ... :) ]

I doubt the following will help, but who knows:
On console:

$ dumpkeys -i
keycode range supported by kernel:           1 - 255
max number of actions bindable to a key:         256
number of keymaps in actual use:                 14
of which 7 dynamically allocated
ranges of action codes supported by kernel:
number of function keys supported by kernel: 256
max nr of compose definitions: 256
nr of compose definitions in actual use: 68

If we're already at it: I just realized that even on console the <>
key (right hand side of <SHIFT>) and ^° (above TAB) are swapped
... Same on your console?

My boottime.kmap.gz:

PowerBook5,8 here.

Please let me know if you need to know more ....
