Language packages


Hi! I have got the following problem:
I have installed slack today and some problem emerged , my main headache is that I do not know how to install language packages, the kde control center offers me plenty of layouts, but without the language support they are useless. The buttons add language doesn't work. I can't even open non english webpages in mozilla. What would you suggest?

Also my mouse scroll is dead.

Please help!

First for the mouse:
Your mouse section in the xorg.conf prolly looks like that:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
It's based on the setting you ran in the "xorgconfig" (doesn't have to be 100% similler), now what you need to do is add this line:
Code:
Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
So it'll look like that:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
    Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
^ Been taken from shilo's post in the slackware forum.

For the language problem go to http://www.kde.org and download your langauge package.

Tnahx a lot,
concerning language support - when installing slack 10.2, I also installed international language support for kde or sth like that, and it doesn't work. I need to type in russian without converting to russian interface, and russian is not available as a language. Is it solvable in slack?

Use linux google to find Fonts after you got them there're few ways to set them the way I like is using the xorg.conf file to set them up than I restart the xserver and you got them + you need to add the language in the net browser.

I was in the same situation. I installed thiskde-i18n-bg-3.4.2-noarch-1 from Slackware 10.2 CD2, and now I can add Bulgarian. I have all these packages already installed:

x11-fonts-cyrillic-6.8.2-noarc
x11-fonts-misc-6.8.2-noarch-3
x11-fonts-scale-6.8.2-noarch-3
x11-fonts-100dpi-6.8.2-noarch-3

When I add Bulgarian, I see squares instead of letters both in applications title bar and web pages(I see squares and without adding Bulgarian in web pages). I tried 8859-5, windows 1251 and Unicode encoding in firefox but with no effect.

Does somebody know how to fix this?

If this program is still actual - I solved it by copying winnt/fonts to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF folder
my distro is slack 10.2

Thank you. I solved the problem by installing fonts. But because I could not find this directory I used this:

Control Center -> System Administration -> Font Installer.

or in Konqueror write

fonts:/ and copy fonts there.
