German localization problems

I added this:

export LANG="deutsch"
export LANGUAGE="deutsch"
export LC_ALL="deutsch"
export RC_LANG="deutsch"

and /etc/rc.conf

CONSOLEFONT="latin9w-16"

But I get some ugly characters instead of the german characters. I read this in the Gentoo forums:

rc.conf:

CONSOLETRANSLATION="8859-15_to_uni"

But it doesn't work. Is there a solution?

versuch mal nur 'de' statt 'deutsch'

Ist in meiner /usr/share/locale/locale.alias als de_DE.ISO-8859-1 definiert.

Das steht bei mir auch aber die LC Nachrichten sind immer mit komischen Zeichen anstatt dem Umlaut.

Re: German localization problems

also ich hab nur komische zeichen wenn ich mit wget eine datei downloade
(also auch bei pacman -Syu)
ich dachte du brauchst deutsche Ausgabe bei gimp etc.
ansonsten hab ich noch in meiner rc.conf:
HARDWARECLOCK="UTC"
TIMEZONE=Europe/Berlin
KEYMAP=de-latin1-nodeadkeys
CONSOLEFONT=lat9w-16

Hm, some programs are compiled with locales and some are not, some
require external packages to be installed to get support for certain
languages. I'm a German user and don't mind the English interface for
most of my work. After some strange expieriences with localisations(which
was on Windows with Homesite where they "localized" html-tags such as
center and things  smile ) I even like the English surface more that German.
So I don't use the "export LANG=de_DE" in profile but use:
"env LANG=de_DE gaim" and "env LANG=de_DE gimp-2.0" for some
programs. (I entered that as start command in xfce4-panel)

Re: German localization problems

You can get an overview of all available locals with the command:

locale -a

I made a new file In /etc/profile.d where I export the locale-settings:

the variables I assign the local-value and export: LANG, LANGUAGE, LC_ALL

I'm still seeking for a per user way to do this ... /.xsession?
