    New User Questions


    I have decided to switch from Win XP to Knoppix and I had a few questions regarding it:

    1) I have downloaded (in error) a Knoppix version in Arabian. Is it possible to switch the language to English while installing or will I be forced to download the English version?

    2)Could you reccomend any books to help me understand the UNIX system and Knoppix X-Window?

    3)Which games are available for Knoppix?

    1) I think you will have to install the english one sorry

    2) I'd reconmend O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide as a nice little cheap reference book, and if you have some more cash also form O'Reilly Running Linux there is a review of the latter here.

    3)I'm not sure what games come with knoppix, but I'm sure there will be a few, If you install Knoppix it will be possible for you to download plenty of games form places like www.happypenguin.org

    So you are absolutely sure there is no way to customize the OS Language?

    I'm asking because I remember seeing something about language customization and since I have to pay for the flatrate...

    Sorry but on each cd there is only one language iirc, but you can do things like keyboard layout to match the one in your country etc.

    Does lang=us only effect the command-line interface?

    fpd, I think it might refere to the keyboard layout, if this is a boot it will only be in the cli, but there should be an option in kde to do this aswell.

    If I remember correctly KDE lets you choose the language

    For knoppix, the best thing is Knowing Knoppix, a free book you can find on the net. You can google for it, here is one link (for a .pdf version):
