    Ubuntu & languages (Irish in particular)

    Hi, I've been doing a lot of reading over the last few days in preparation for installing Ubuntu (new HD should be delivered in the next ½ hour). There are some great guides out there, but so far I haven't come across anything explaining how your language choices interact with the package managers, especially if Ubuntu itself doesn't come in your language. I'm interested in Ubuntu, but I guess this applies to all flavours.

    So I guess my questions are...

    1. Do I set my locale somewhere and then automatically get to see packages for the appropriate language?
    2. Will it be a problem that I actually live in Australia?

    Thanks for you help.

    when you first pop in the cd, you have to set your language preferences. dont worry, it's easy.

    No, I don’t mean Gaelic (which usually refers to Scottish Gaelic AKA Gàidhlig), I mean Irish AKA Gaeilge.

    sorry my only exposure to the language has been through the likes of Celtic Woman & Clannad. But, sure, 'tis a lovely & lyrical tongue!
