use wattOS R8 in other languages

  • May 11, 2014 3:23 AM PDT

    wattOS which became the Debian base is changed to the installer conventionally.

    When you want to use wattOS in other languages, The installation may become English.

    But the procedure of the installation will not be troubled because it is the almost same as before.



    After having rebooted, you may meet with problem of character.

    But you know the necessary item,

    The item necessary for login is a user name and the password that you input by installation some time ago.



    An icon of Terminal will be found on a panel. accept the next command:

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get upgrade

    sudo apt-get install fonts-droid

    You may install of necessary package here. (that I need ibus-mozc for Japanese input)


    Please go logout and the login once (or reboot wattOS),

    You can use wattOS in an objective language in this.



    Most of the indication of Microwatt becomes English.
    When you want to use it by a specific language, you should use of LXDE or MATE version.

    Because fonts-droid is included in the MATE version, this will be more likely to display it normally.


    wattOS R8 adopted Iceweasel for a browser newly.

    We can use this like Firefox.

    When you want to apply a language file, you install package "iceweasel-l10n-XX". (XX=language code)

    You may install this using synaptic and apt-get. For example, I do it this way from the terminal:


    sudo apt-get install iceweasel-l10n-ja
