Comment 1 Lennart Schultz 2011-08-18 06:37:15 UTC

I am a danish user and am trying to use Live CD.
During the boot process I am asked to select my national keyboard, and I can select 11 (dk), so far so good, in the console window it works fine.

However in X11 nothing is working!

1) I can see that "da" is missing for LINGUAS, in /etc/make.conf, this will fix the specific missing danish applications.

2) For all supported languages however the file /etc/locale.gen shuld be changed:
All entries should be uncommented, and an entry or two for all supported languages should be added.
e.g. for danish the two lines:
da_DK.UTF-8 UTF-8
da_DK ISO-8859-1
and the program locale-gen should be run.

3) When a keybord is choosed at boottime and the proper keybord is set in 
/etc/csh.env and /etc/profile.env should be updated as well with the environment variables: LANG and LC_ALL
e.g. for danish
echo "export LANG='da_DK.UTF-8'
export LC_ALL='da_DK.UTF-8'" >> /etc/profile.env
echo "setenv LANG 'da_DK.UTF-8'
setenv LC_ALL 'da_DK.UTF-8'" >> /etc/csh.env

With theese changes all supported keybord/languages should work also in X11.

/Artwork should be updated to reflect 11 years ;)
