    HOWTO install language support for Dapper

    I installed Swedish language support on my Dapper Server (LTS), here is how I did it. First I went to the /usr/share/locales directory;

    $ cd /usr/share/locales

    In that directory is a script to add a new locale or language pack. I knew I wanted sv_SE which is the pack for Swedish. If you want to find out which language pack to install you can look at the /etc/locale.alias file. To install Swedish language support on Dapper I ran this command;

    $ ./install-language-pack sv_SE

    Then I ran dpkg-reconfigure like this;

    $ dpkg-reconfigure locales

    It saw that I added the Swedish language pack and support for Swedish was enabled on my server.

    Perhaps because it's a 4-year old tip relating to a 4-year old release of Ubuntu.
