Christoph Lameter: > There is still no hint anywhere on how to display manpages in German. When you install the package, it tells you: Setting up manpages-de (0.1-5) ... To enable these manpages set LC_MESSAGES to 'de_DE'. Man will then search for german manpages under /usr/man/de_DE (this directory should be added to the MANDB_MAPs in etc/manpath.conf for catmans to be stored). "man man" tells you: International support is available with this package. Native language manual pages are accessible (if available on your system) via use of locale functions. To activate such support, it is necessary to set either $LC_MESSAGES, $LANG or another system dependent environment variable to your language locale, usually specified in the POSIX 1003.1 based format: <language>[_<territory>[.<character-set>[,<version>]]] If the desired page is available in your locale, it will be displayed in lieu of the standard (usually American English) page. But I do think /usr/doc/manpages-de should contain a reference to this. The message output by postinst is very easy to miss, especially if using dselect. -- Please read <http://www.iki.fi/liw/mail-to-lasu.html> before mailing me.
