  1. Bug#472806: console-setup: consoles loose their font when switching to X and back

    Package: console-setup
    Version: 1.21
    Severity: normal

    *** Please type your report below this line ***
    Hi I've set up console-setup on my laptop with the configuration below.
    As soon as /etc/init.d/console-setup start/restart is executed the
    Terminus font is loaded correctly, but when I switch to X and then
    back to a console each of them uses the standard kernel font.

    This is a Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook E8410 with an nvidia GeForce 8400M
    G GPU. I'm using the propreitary nvidia driver for X.

    Any ideas?

    Best wishes,
    Chris.
