Hi all,

I am using FC2. I have a graphical login set up and so
I can choose the environment language from the login
screen by clicking on the Language tab at the bottom
left.

By language for environment I mean that I get the
desktop icons and the panel all in my selected
language.

My query is, how to choose language if login is set
for init 3. I mean, how would I choose a language for
my session if I don't have a graphical login screen.


Believe the LANG environment variable will do it.  See what
"env | grep LANG" shows with the desired language environment active,
and then "export LANG=<setting>" in runlevel 3.

Try changing the "LANG=" setting in /etc/sysconfig/i18n as that sets the default language. /etc/sysconfig/keyboard sets the default keymap, too. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - "The Schizophrenic: An Unauthorized Autobiography" - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
