You’re talking about %default-console-font?  What does that change?

I’m lost.  :-)

We have the following options:

  1. status quo, i.e., tcsetattr without %G in the ‘term-ttyN’ services;

  2. remove the tcsetattr call, write “1” to

  3. do nothing (no tcsetattr, no /sys, no %G).

It seems that systemd does everything: %G, tcsetattr, and /sys.

What do we do now?
