English SUSE with Danish Open Office?


Ok, so my SUSE 10.0 install is up and running, and everything is working great. I really love this distro. There is just one minor thing I would like to change, but I can't seem to figure it out.

I would like to reinstall the system in British English, as having the system in English makes following the various guides found in this great forum and other places on the net much easier. The only program I wan't to keep in Danish is Open Office. I would like to have Danish menues and Danish spellchecking etc. I just can't figure out how to install it this way, when I install in English language, Open Office also ends up in English, and even looking through the advanced install options, I can't seem to change Open Office to Danish.

It is probably just some simple stupid thing I am missing, but I don't get it.

Anyway, thanks a lot to anyone who can help :-)

When you reinstall include the package OpenOffice_org-da. That will install the Danish language support for Open Office. I don't know whether or not Danish then becomes the Open Office default language. You may have a choice of English or Danish.

Thanks for answering. Thats exactly how I did the same thing with Mandrake when I used it, but I just can't find it in SUSE, even if I choose advanced install. I'll try it again later, I'm probably just overseeing something simple. Anyway, thanks for the answer, now I at least know that it can be done and that I am trying the correct thing :-)

Ok, I managed to figure it out. I was of course just blind and looking the wrong place. Thanks again for your help :-)
