[SOLVED] Console/Keymap error on boot

Post by ajgringo619 »

Got this after updating LMDE3 after the initial install (only updated debian-system-adjustments and libservlet3.1-java:

Code: Select all

[FAILED] Failed to start Set console font and keymap.
See 'systemctl status console-setup.service' for details.
Results:

Code: Select all

systemctl status console-setup.service

It doesn't prevent the system from booting, so I don't consider it a major issue, but it was not there until I ran the 1st update.

Should have known it was something simple:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl restart console-setup.service
