Internationalization problem
Hi !

I have a problem getting messages/programs in my native language. These variables are defined:

export LC_ALL=nb_NO
export LANG=nb_NO
export LANGUAGE=nb_NO

Now I should have some norwegian language, but there isn't. If I do a 'set' command there is a variable called LANG already, may be this is the problem (where does the variable LANG=C come from?)?

gettext is also installed, but no difference.

Abiword is now misbehaving and the program menus are missing. Strange!

I think Amigo should have some support for internationalization.

On a zipslack install this works out of the box, and I get national language both from system commands, error messages and running software with this ability.

I suspect some packages are missing? But which?

Where have you defined these variables? They should normally go in your .bashrc, to take effect at the next login. (if you run these commands in a terminal window, it will only effect that window until it is closed.)
LANG=C is a common default, and means to use untranslated strings. It's normally defined in something like /etc/profile

Found out the problem... Had to:
1. install glibc-i18n-2.3.2-noarch-1.tgz
2. edit /etc/profile.d/

Look in /usr/share/i18n/locales for supported languages. If you want German language support you change the file /etc/prodile.d/ so it looks like this 'export LANG=de_DE'

Now Amigo has internationalization support. :)
