Linux: Systemd ignore console-setup settings

If you work on older Laptops and you use a Console only System Setup like on Debian there is a Bug on systemd and the console-setup package since years. After reboot all Font Settings seems gone. But the Settings are not real gone, cause systemd does not pull the settings on boot! How to fix? edit the crontab of root by sudo su – crontab -e insert the /bin/setupcon command on „@reboot“ means on every boot! @reboot     /bin/setupcon > /dev/null 2>&1 save and exit, reboot now now the PC should echo big Fonts for old eyes „Terminus 20×12 Frambuffermode“
