[Solved] LVM install and post-install localization

Postby petaramesh » Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:57 am

Hi there,

Unfortunately, LMDE installer doesn't support installing to LVM (this really deserves a fix), but I could succeed installing it by more or less closely following this HowTo: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=71159

However, once done, I find myself in an US/english system, where I'd like french.

I could reassign the keyboard, timezone, etc, but I could find no *-lang-fr and very few *l10n-fr etc packages (except for Thuderbird / Firefox / Chromium), so my question is : Please, how do I localize my whole system and interface into french after install ?

TIA, kind regards.

[Solved] post-install localization

Postby petaramesh » Mon Apr 16, 2012 4:21 am

It seems that the following completes a correct system localization:

Code: Select all

dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
dpkg-reconfigure locales
dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
update-initramfs -u
