Change MIYO, CROWZ or STAR to GERMAN language

Hi, I am new here and I am from Germany.

I have successfully installed MIYO BASE ASCII on very old hardware (INTEL ATOM, 1GB RAM).

I also tested CROWZ and STAR in their ASCII versions. Again, I could not change the language.

All versions run great, exactly as I imagined.

How can I now change the system language of MIYO, CROWZ or STAR to "GERMAN"?

Habe auch CROWZ und STAR in den jeweiligen ASCII-Versionen getestet. Auch hier konnte ich die Sprache nicht umstellen.

Alle Versionen laufen super, genau so wie ich es mir vorgestellt habe.

Wie kann ich nun die Systemsprache bei MIYO, CROWZ oder STAR auf "DEUTSCH" umstellen?

You should be able to change them from a terminal using the following, just add your Country designation, (mine would be UK).

For the GUI => 


For the CLI =>

Re: Change MIYO, CROWZ or STAR to GERMAN language

In the installed system, you should be able to set language and keyboard by running (as root or with sudo)

dpkg-reconfigure locales
dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

You can configure more than one language and keyboard and choose which one is the default.

If you want to change the language and keyboard when you boot a live-CD or live-USB, edit the  boot command to add

locales=de_DE.UTF-8 keyboard-layouts=de

  Note: To access the boot command at the boot menu, press TAB if you booted legacy bios or press e if you booted UEFI.
