Install downloads language packs

Postby mugumbu » Sun Nov 27, 2011 2:17 pm

I'm installing Mint 12 from DVD with a slow internet connection, and I wonder why it's been downloading all the language packs for the last hour. Am I going to need all of them at the same time? Wouldn't it be faster to download the ones I am likely to want? The ones I ask for?

You can skip them indeed, as described here.
