releasing package console-setup version 1.108ubuntu5

453. By Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre on 2015-04-21

Reinstate checking for XKBLAYOUT being in the config file: this handles
the cases where installs done with ubiquity don't have their debconf seen
flag set for model/layout questions. If layout is already configure, lower
the corresponding question's priority to medium so we don't ask it again.
(LP: #1446231)

Add systemd unit for console-setup. That avoids waiting for $remote_fs
during early boot. (Note: there is no need to enable it, it gets pulled
in through systemd-vconsole-setup.service) (LP: #1430280)

releasing package console-setup version 1.108ubuntu3

Drop console-setup-freebsd; it's useless and uninstallable given that we
don't have a freebsd port.

* Fix the mess I made with the previous upload:
* Reinstate changelog entry from 1.70ubuntu10; the changes aren't necessary
  as keyboard-configuration does get the translated names of keyboards.
* Reinstate changes from 1.70ubuntu11:
  - Make debian/keyboard-configuration.console-setup.init do the same as the
    corresponding .upstart: I. e. just call loadkeys instead of setupcon, and
    don't check the current console. (Font loading is already done via udev
[ Steve Langasek ]
* Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes: (LP: #1426721)
  - Don't gzip font or ACM files in /etc/console-setup/. The space saving
    is negligible, and it's more efficient not to need to uncompress them
    at boot time.
  - Include pc105.tree for ubiquity.
  - Move boot tasks to a combination of two udev rules and a single
    Upstart job, ensuring that they're run at points when we are able to
    satisfy the constraints on the relevant ioctls.
  - Stop running debconf-updatepo on clean.
  - Set keymap and font in the initramfs if possible and sensible.
  - Add an apport hook.
  - Use keymapper to generate decision trees for a restricted subset of
    the pc105 model.
  - Depend on kbd (>= 1.15-1ubuntu3) for a valuable loadkeys improvement.
  - Include support for translated keyboard names.
  - Depend on debconf instead of pre-depending, because pre-depends have
    no effect on config scripts.
  - debian/vtrgb, debian/vtrgb.vga,
    debian/console-setup-linux.setvtrgb.upstart, debian/rules,
    debian/console-setup-linux.postinst: use Ubuntu's virtual terminal color
    scheme by default, with a VGA color scheme available as an alternative.
  - Make setupcon explicitly exit 0, so that postinsts don't fail in the
    event that loadkeys can't find a console.
  - Update for new layouts and variants for Montenegro and Serbia, and
    migrate configuration files from the old layouts.
  - Generate a locale locally for translating keyboard names in
  - Don't copy keyboard-configuration questions to /target in OEM mode.
    oem-config will ask them later, and copying these confuses it.
  - Change the default font from Fixed to VGA for Lat15; while it's not
    entirely complete, it looks better and is largely good enough.
  - If the detect-keyboard debconf plugin is available
    (cdebconf-newt-detect-keys in the installer), then offer to use it to
    detect the keyboard layout.
  - Fix default keyboard selection for language/country combinations
    lacking a proper combined locale.
  - Drop the layout/variant priority to high on fresh installs.
  - Set default for Dutch to us(intl), not just us.
  - Set default layout for Vietnam to 'us'.
  - Set default variant for French to oss.
  - Set default layout for Simplified Chinese to 'cn'.
  - Don't use the default keyboard variant if the layout is overridden by
  - If keyboard-configuration/layoutcode is preseeded but not marked as
    seen, then set the default layout but don't lower the layout question
    priority or preseed console-setup/ask_detect.
  - Use the default keyboard model if an existing configuration file sets
  - Go back to always asking layout before variant.
  - Fix keyboard layout detection to set the layout properly.
  - Reset keyboard-configuration/toggle to the default if it's set to "No
    toggling" and you select a non-Latin layout.
  - Automatically save the font and keymap to /etc in
    /etc/init.d/console-setup if it isn't being run from init. Similarly,
    ensure that the font and keymap are saved to /etc during initial
  - Replace usplash detection code with Plymouth detection code.
  - Load the new keyboard configuration immediately when running
    'dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration' in an installed system.
  - Don't fail to configure keyboard-configuration if setxkbmap fails to
    talk to the X display.
  - Tolerate absence of setupcon in keyboard-configuration.postinst.
  - Drop the simplified keyboard-configuration/xkb-keymap question.
  - Fix command injection in ckbcomp.
  - debian/console-setup.console-font.upstart: Add Upstart job that sets up
    console font when plymouth-splash is starting.
  - Override description of the ch layout from "German (Switzerland)" to
    just "Switzerland".
  - Map ppc64el/* to XKBMODEL=pc105.
* Dropped changes, included in Debian:
  - "Do not configure keyboard; keep kernel keymap" model option,
    preseedable by keyboard-configuration/modelcode=SKIP: this is now
    supported upstream with either "unknown" or an empty string as the
  - Run kbd_mode on each tty in ACTIVE_CONSOLES rather than on the current
    tty, since the current tty might belong to X and changing X's tty out
    of raw mode is a very bad idea.
  - Include Terminus font in the compiled packages. Do not depend, but
    conflict/provide/replace console-terminus. New upstream version of
    the Terminus font (4.32).
  - Explicitly build-depend on liblocale-gettext-perl for kbdnames-maker,
    and likewise have keyboard-configuration depend on
  - Weaken test for whether /usr is mounted; testing for /usr/share is
    sufficient, and fixes operation in d-i.
  - Make keyboard-configuration replace old console-setup/console-setup-mini
    versions as well as conflicting with them.
  - Set default layout for Kurdish to tr(ku).
* Dropped changes, no longer needed:
  - Cope with systems installed with console-setup-udeb (<< 1.53) (which
    predates Ubuntu 12.04 and Debian wheezy).
  - Drop ancient handling of an empty codeset in the config file.
  - Drop vtrgb upgrade handling from natty
  - Drop upstart job transition from lucid
* setupcon: Map XKBMODEL=SKIP to '' for compatibility with existing
* debian/rules: revert hard-coding of a list of "debconf-selectable"
  layouts for the udebs, since we don't use this debconf question in Ubuntu
  and all layouts are selectable.
* setupcon: revert ridiculous upstream twiddling of keymap cache filenames:
  - the variables are taken from a config file which, if changed,
    invalidates the cache.
  - there is only ever one keyboard map per system.
  - the system should not have to resolve filenames to find the keymap cache
    on boot.
* Move vtrgb handling to console-setup-linux package, since this is clearly
* Add missing console-setup-linux.prerm to remove /etc/vtrgb alternatives
* Keyboard/kbdcompiler: fix bug in filtering of unsupported variants that
  breaks generation of the pc105.tree for d-i keyboard detection.
* debian/keyboard-configuration.postinst: udpkg is not part of an installed
  Debian system; don't fail to configure if it's absent and the script is
  called outside of an installer context.
* Don't make debian/copyright a symlink to COPYRIGHT, this is disallowed
  by the Ubuntu archive installer.
[ Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre ]
* debian/keyboard-configuration.config: fix typo in model check for SKIP;
  even when looking up the layout/variant, we need to check for the model
  as XKBMODEL, since $model doesn't exist.
* debian/preprocessor: revert the removal of keyboard names (for size) of
  console-setup-udeb: we do need those, since we don't use the simplified
  xkb-keymap template from Debian just yet: this way we can still show
  country/language names when selecting a keyboard, layout or variant.
