Well, I think it's important to know for people with non-latin locales.
After graphical Calamares intallation, we must continue in tty console. If my first command will be mirror, my output will be something like that ( I choose Russian locale in Calamares):

OK. It means that instead mirror i need to print something to make console output readable, but before mirror alias. In my case it's will be:

setfont cyr-sun16

Image
But it will be working for current session only. If we ploanning return to the tty for some reason someday, we can use
sudo nano /etc/vconsole.conf
and print there

FONT=cyr-sun16

Image
For your locales you can use ar, heb or lat instead cyr or even alltogether latarcyrheb-sun16 :shock: :)
