Dear Debian Maintainers (usability)
It is great what you are doing. But the usability of debian itself... I get
the feeling that I'm too stupid to use it.
I do understand the installation stuff with apt-get, ok. If the package
configures itself, it may works. But when I have to use dpk-reconfigure, I
always wonder what the correct package cpuld be. And if I have an answer from
the debian list, it only works partially.
dpkg-reconfigure locales. I can select de-utf8@euro, I can select this as
default. Additionally I have selected all DE-sets and all RU-sets. At the end
I have locales generated...l and my keyboard layout is english :-( (in text
mode, X didn't want to start).
Another thing is the network. Until now I dont know how to change from dhcp to
static ip. Maybe I should rtfm, thats true, but on the other side: shouldnt
it be as easy as clicking a button and enter the IP? It does not have to be
graphical with buttons, but a small menu would be great.
I hope the new installer will care about these problems. I dont want to change
back to suse. I dont want to pay just because of new kernel / new kde / new
version of ....
