adding languages

Hi everyone,

I have slackware 9.0 running on a compaq IPAQ desktop. I have installed it in English.

What I want to do is to have other languages for say specific user accounts - user A has German and B has Tamil. Is this possible? If so how ?

It would be sufficient if I could change this setting in say KDE. But only English appears in the pull down/select for languages.

Is there any way to do this, without reinstalling ?

If you installed the i18n stuff, I think you can edit the users
~/.bash_profile to contain, in general:

export LANG=LanguageCode_CountryCode
export LC_ALL=LanguageCode_CountryCode

e.g. for german:

export LANG=de_DE
export LC_ALL=de_DE
