To use the Refracta in your native language

Postby balloon » Sun Nov 06, 2016 11:54 am

Refracta ISO is to fit on 700M, it uses localepurge.
Therefore, if you want to use the Refracta in non-English, it will remain a lot of English.

I will leave the tips to make this solution here:

Code: Select all
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt remove localepurge asunder man-db
$ sudo apt dist-upgrade
$ sudo apt -u --reinstall --fix-missing install $(dpkg -S LC_MESSAGES | cut -d: -f1 | tr ', ' '\n' | sort -u)
$ sudo apt install asunder man-db
$ sudo apt install --install-recommends task-<language> task-<language>-desktop
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

<language> is a full in lowercase. (ex: japanese)

Thank you! I would not have known how to do that if someone asked.

I could be wrong, but I think this procedure is not needed for the few pre-configured languages in Refracta. Here's the list.
Code: Select all
ar_LB.UTF-8 UTF-8
de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8
en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
es_ES.UTF-8 UTF-8
et_EE.UTF-8 UTF-8
fi_FI.UTF-8 UTF-8
fr_FR.UTF-8 UTF-8
he_IL.UTF-8 UTF-8
hi_IN UTF-8
hy_AM UTF-8
is_IS.UTF-8 UTF-8
it_IT.UTF-8 UTF-8
lt_LT.UTF-8 UTF-8
lv_LV.UTF-8 UTF-8
nb_NO.UTF-8 UTF-8
nl_NL.UTF-8 UTF-8
nn_NO.UTF-8 UTF-8
pl_PL.UTF-8 UTF-8
pt_PT.UTF-8 UTF-8
ro_RO.UTF-8 UTF-8
ru_RU.UTF-8 UTF-8
sr_RS UTF-8
sv_SE.UTF-8 UTF-8
tr_TR.UTF-8 UTF-8

Unfortunately Japanese (ja_JP.UTF-8) does not exist on that list...

I chose Japanese as locale, but because Rafracta discarded the locale file,
it was in English display.
Therefore I had to do this work with Refracta.
It will exist elsewhere. Even just looking at it, Korean, Chinese, ...

I think this is a very difficult task for beginners of locale discarded languages... :|

Would it be overly involved to add Japanese to the existing file? In other words, is it as simple as adding ja_JP.UTF-8 to the file, or is it much more involved than that?

I'm only asking, because I still have much to learn and am trying to improve my knowledge. :)

I think it is easy, but there is a problem with thickening Refracta ISO.
It may exceed the CD size.
