    To copy and Paste

    Thank you for your reply on the shortcuts; it does work and I am really excited.

    Now here is another little bug. When I copy from Internet in my e-mail acct
    and paste to openoffice.org word processor it gives un different language or at least part of the text i.e some letters are changed to some funny characters.

    If you could tell me what I do wrong or don,t I would thank you so much.

    Language in Kubuntu

    Thank you for your reply. How do we install a french localization package for 00o.

    Also can we change the language for the keyboard in order to have accents for the french language.

    Thank you so much for your time and Help.

    Look in the KDE Control Center (enter kcontrol in Konsole) and go to Peripherals / Keyboard to choose what keyboard you want.

    Regarding OpenOffice and french, I can't read what's on this page, but see if it has the info you need.
