My GNOPPIX is in german.. how do i change it?


I have just downloaded the GNOPPIX, Linux Live On CD distro, and i dont understand a damn.... the system starts in german, and thats pretty ugly to a southamerican guy like me :P

Anybody knows how to change the language once you are in GNOME????

Thank you...

Heh, I know of a Knoppix (http://www.knoppix.net/), I think the G in Gnoppix stands for German (not sure though). Try and download that one.

not, you're wrong my friend...

KNOPPIX = KDE

GNOPPIX = GNOME

it's the same system, but the diference is in the graphic enviroment....

i got KNOPPIX but it came by default in english, but GNOPPIX not

i'm not sure, but i believe that the 'lang=us' parameter is for the keyboard configuration....
