This package provides the console with the same keyboard
configuration scheme as the X Window System. As a result, there is no
need to duplicate or change the keyboard files just to make simple
customizations such as the use of dead keys, the key functioning as
AltGr or Compose key, the key(s) to switch between Latin and
non-Latin mode, etc.
The package also installs console fonts supporting many of the
world's languages.  It provides an unified set of font faces - the
classic VGA, the simplistic Fixed, and the cleaned Terminus,
TerminusBold and TerminusBoldVGA.
