KDE charset problem


I have recently compiled KDE 2.2.2 and though it worked just fine, I cannot set the charset correctly. I go to Control Panel ->Personalization -> Country & Languages (I think that's the way they appear in control panel) and I choose my country. Ok it auto selects the language just fine but the charset remains iso8859-1. I click on the combo box and there are a bunch of iso8859 charsets but not mine (7)!!! Damn! Can someone help me? What do I need to do?

Try downloading the i18n package for the language you need.
