I used apt-get install -f with no success, at the end i removed the
leftover from the Portuguese lang. and added greek lang. support which
seemed to have installed. However i cannot find a way to switch from the
keyboard a combination of keys to try and see if it works.
your help will be appreciated.
i don7t know ubuntu much, but that's how i configured my Slackware Box for Turkish.
i changed /etc/profile.d/lang.sh to export $LANG=tr_TR.UTF-8. most of the programs already comes with turkish language po files so it made them show turkish language mesages. KDE uses language packs, i installed them. XFCE did not need to install any language packs as it's lightweigt and it uses gettext (po files) for multilanuage messages.
now for some information about $LANG variable. it's defined in posix standart as this; [code of the language].[CODE OF THE COUNTRY].[DEFAULT ENCODING]. for Greek with unicode (UTF-8), $LANG should be el_GR.UTF-8.
