apt-get gnome

Hi all,

I have Libranet (Debian distro) and I am using Gnome, but the UI is in english, can I somehow use apt-get to install another language?

use apt-cache search packagename

for knowing whats available. there is a good gui front end for apt-get called synpatic. apt-get synaptic would get it for you. search the language pack you want to use. has a localization section. check whether your language is supported there
