Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think this one is for system-wide settings. *not sure*
that's the one 've been using.
Or do you mean to the support for local languages i the kernel?
It should be possible to build the modules and install them in a running kernel. But i have no idea how you do that.
I just wait for a new test version to come out so that i've got a brand new kernel to compile anyway.
Thanks a lot, guys.
I just figured out that 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' generates new locales support(charset precisely)
But what I am asking seems to be another issue.
In KDE control center, I have language(default C) and charset (iso-xxx).
I have got the correct locale installed, but I need the language support to enable
displaying those charset.
With kde i'd think that it was enough to use kcontrol
The KDE Control Center and look at Regional settings..
Now i'm not sure what version you're running. If it's woody then you're probably stuck with an old KDE, and me with unstable can't even get it to install. (uninstallable library)
Take a look at KDE Control Center or the Desktop Setup Wizard.
Or drop KDE and go over to Blackbox or Enlightenment
This sounds like what I'm looking for I found a fun variant of Knoppix called Famelix, but it only has the protugese language installed! I am planning on adding English, and then re-creating the Live CD ... the Brazilians went to som etrouble to make it look a lot like Winblows XP, so I'm going to have some fun with the helpdesk guy at work ;-)
csantos67 If you want some real fun
Download PHLAK live linux and boot that with the
You'll be looking at a modifeid XP screen with working menus and stuff...
*did that at school and almost drove another student crazy*
He was sure it was XP and so mad when he couldn't do anything...
*really evil grin*
I just love that distro after that
*never leaves home without it on a cd*
that's awesome! I couldn't get Famelix to work, they removed all non-Portuguese support :-| I used apt-get install aptitude, apt-get install language-env, and dpkg-reconfigure locales
and set the preferences for us-en ( I tried all the ISO variants too ) but the KDE control panel never reflected that any language other than Portuguese was installed. I think I would have had to rebuild the entire distro.
I talk to the people of FAMELIX in FISL (POA_Brazil), about localization,
and they say that the project got more response then they are expecting.
They, will work to put the project in a good repository
and make a localization for English, others localizations will be accepted
