Hello. I have a question. How to fix the fonts of the terminal in text mode (Ctrl+Alt+F1)? At me all Russian letters are not displayed:

In terminae from GUI (Gnome 3), all is well:

Use the following command as root user in a Terminal window, to see which console keymaps are available:

Code: Select all

localectl list-keymaps
Then set the keymap you want (there are several Cyrillic keyboard maps but I don't know which would apply to your keyboard). For example:

Code: Select all

localectl set-keymap ru
N.B. The above systemd command does not change the console keymap specified in /boot/grub/grub.cfg, which remains as “vconsole.keymap=us“. You will have to fix that by editing /etc/default/sabayon-grub and then running:

Code: Select all

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
I'm not sure, but I think you will need “vconsole.keymap=ru“, but Google should help you find the correct keymap code for Cyrillic.
