Additional info:
* terminus-font 4.30-1

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install terminus-font.
2. Run xlsfonts | grep terminus.

This is normal for running X servers. You should handle this yourself. Pacman can't run this command inside each and every possible running X server when you install the package.

Well thanks for clearing that up. I would have thought that being a X11 and console font, the package would come configured for both.
