configure virtual terminals on a wscons display
wsconscfg tool allows for the creation
and removal of virtual terminals on display devices controlled by the wscons
terminal framework, as long as the underlying display hardware driver
supports multiple screens. Furthermore, it controls the assignment of
keyboards to displays.
The index argument specifies which virtual
terminal is to be configured. Valid numbers range from 0 to an
implementation-specified value (currently 11, allowing for 12 virtual
terminals on a display). In keyboard configuration mode (see
-k, below), it specifies the
wskbd(4) device to attach or detach.
Without further option arguments, a virtual terminal is created with
implementation specific properties and a default terminal emulation variant
selected at kernel compile time.
The options are as follows:
-Foption is also given. Terminals used by the operating system console or a graphics program (X server) cannot be deleted. With the
-kflag, the keyboard specified by index will be detached from the wscons display. With the
-mflag, the multiplexor specified by index will be detached from the wscons display.
Configure screen 1 (i.e., the second) for type “80x50” and VT100 terminal emulation. (Note: “80x50” is a screen type offered by the vga(4) display driver. In this particular case, an 8x8-font must be loaded beforehand to make the screen useful. See wsfontload(8).)
Connect the first unconnected keyboard to the display:
# wsconscfg -k
