Console font

Problem

When ubuntu starts (without usplash), startup messages are displayed in a nice-looking font. Then the following message appears: "Setting up console font and keymap..." and an ugly font is loaded. I want to get the standard font back.

Solution

Modify /etc/default/console-setup:

$> diff -u console-setup.orig console-setup
--- console-setup.orig  2007-03-10 19:53:43.000000000 +0100
+++ console-setup       2007-03-10 19:56:53.000000000 +0100
