Re: [SOLVED] no german umlauts

If you chose German at install time you should already be able to see Umlauts. Or did you install your system in English? Did you set the keyboard to German from within the installer?

Re: [SOLVED] no german umlauts

Of course I do not choose german...
The only available locale is english.
I only use setxkbmap keyboard-configuration in x, I only need german 4 some translation work.
I got different hardware-keyboards here but the keys üöä on the german one doesn't work in the terminalemulator or in vim-tiny.

EDIT: oh and I skip all of the first expert-installer steps and starting with detect cdrom, so everything is really basicly

You mean you cannot see umlauts in your editor like vim? Then you need to set the character encoding to UTF-8 for your default terminal emulator.
