4. The Euro and the Console

Check that the file /usr/share/keymaps/include/euro.inc.gz includes lines


altgr keycode  18 = currency
altgr keycode  46 = cent

A console font, which suppports euro, must be loaded. Red Hat uses command setfont and Debian uses command consolechars.

In Debian the file /etc/console-tools/config must have ISO-8859-15 screen font:


       SCREEN_FONT=lat0-16

In Red Hat the file /etc/sysconfig/i18n must have lines


   SYSFONT=lat0-16
   SYSFONTACM=iso15
