SYNOPSISset-language-env [-l language] [-hvsrNcCRE]
DESCRIPTIONset-language-env establishes basic native language environment by adding lines to your dot-files. Since the setting is established by adding lines to your dot-files, the private environment for only a person who invokes set-language-env is affected. It does not change any system-wide settings. (Note: The root user can change /etc/skel directory.)
This version supports Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Danish, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish and Ukrainian.
set-language-env shows a list of Debian packages which should be installed. These packages are required to utilize settings. You have to install them or ask the site administrator to install them.
Added lines are surrounded with the header and footer lines. Since these lines are used by set-language-env to recognize the lines it has added, please do not modify them. You can modify lines before the header line and after the footer line and the modification will be preserved after invocations of set-language-env.
When language-env package is updated, you can safely update your dot-files by only invoking set-language-env without your original setting being affected. The place where the lines were added is not changed by the process. However, if you directly modified a setting which set-language-env have added, it will be lost on the next invocation of set-language-env.
- -l language
specify your favorite native language. Here are the supported languages:
- Show help message.
- Verbose mode, mainly for debugging.
- Show a list of supported languages.
- Remove all settings by set-language-env in your dot-files.
- Don't fork another set-language-env. This option is for internal use.
- On runtime of set-language-env, native language-specific (i.e. non-ASCII) characters (such as Kanji and ISO-8859-1) are not used. Though this option is intended to be used internally, this can be used to override automatic detection of whether native language-specific characters can be used or not when the detection does not work well.

- Root user usually cannot set his/her own settings into /root directory because set-language-env checks it. This option disables the check.
- Settings are done into /etc/skel directory instead of users' home directory. Only root user can use this option.
ADDING NEW LANGUAGEIf you would like to add a new language support, read /usr/share/doc/language-env/README.i18n. In short, you will have to write
(1) contents which will be added to users' dot-files,
(2) 'support' file,
(3) documents, and
(4) image file for tklanguage.
Please contact to the developer of language-env.
- Prototypes to be added to your dot-files.
