Thanks, but I red it already, and I did everything that is being adviced there.

The keyboard on consoles tty1-6 is hu101, but the font is not the
Lat2-Terminus16 after reboot, however in the /etc/vconsole.conf I have
the line:

I don't understand, why isn't the console FONT the Lat2-Terminus16 after reboot?

Why I must after reboot and after login on the consoles tty1-6 to run
manually the 'setfont Lat2-Terminus16' command every time?
