    Language for the keyboard?
    Install language?
    whats your distro
    please be specific.

    If your keyboard is the issue, please post the content of the file XF86CONFIG only the keyboard part... as well as the required language...

    If you're using Mandrake Linux, you can modify the language the dialog boxes appear in by using the LocaleDrake tool (either System or User). If the language doesn't appear, you need to install it (by doing an install from Mandrake Control Centre, and choosing INSTALL).

    Very easy - in KDE:

    Press [STAR] -> Configuration -> Other -> LocaleDrake

    There are two LocaleDrake's - SYSTEM and USER. Use SYSTEM if you wish to change the language of the ENTIRE SYSTEM. Use USER if you want everything under YOUR USER to appear in the language you have selected (i.e. not affecting other user's language settings).

    Choose the language you want, and the country you live in. Then the wizard will prompt you to log out. Close any open apps and log out - and then log back in again, and the system will be displayed in your language!
