This page indicates how to install / use Debian in your local language.

See :

Configuration

  • Edit the file /etc/locale.gen (i.e. open a terminal as ["root"], and type nano /etc/locale.gen ) and add your locale settings (one set per line), e.g.:
    • de_DE ISO-8859-1
    • de_DE@euro ISO-8859-15

You can see the supported locales typing nano /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED

  • Run the command "locale-gen"
  • Add the default language to the file /etc/profile (one of the entries you generated in /etc/locale.gen):
    • export LANG=de_DE
    • export LC_ALL=de_DE
    • export LC_CTYPE=de_DE
  • To use the new settings with all programs, not only the ones already running, reboot. That's it.
