    And in addition...
    You should install additional language packs for KDE. For your language, command will be as below:

    Code:
    apt-get install aspell-<lang> kde-i10n-<lang> language-pack-kde-<lang> language-pack-kde-<lang>-base language-pack-<lang> language-pack-<lang>-base language-support-<lang> myspell-<lang>
    Replace <lang> with your country shortcut such as: us, en, cn, ru etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Cool Re: How change the Keyboard layout Language in BT5 KDE

    I am new to Linux distros (Mac user), this will be my first install, but I use Dvorak KB layout. Is it available in BT5? If so how do I switch to it?

    Thanks brothers

    Cool Re: How change the Keyboard layout Language in BT5 KDE

    Thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Nemis......

    It is the only working method for me in this thread since I am running BT5 KDE from a live CD.

    Now, the Keybourd layouts Widget works by clicking it ......

    Anyone knows how to change between layouts by a keyboard shortcut ?

    When dpkg-reconfigure console-setup is completed, I got an error saying that the media is Read-Only (Live CD).

    Hi again ......

    I just wanted to add that alx26 method in post #2 worked as well when I used BT5 kde from a usb flash drive (using unetbootin and the iso file) ....

    I believe the persistence feature in unetbootin eleminates the read-only drawback, no need to install any language support by the way ....

    Only use : sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup from a terminal and wait till it finished then reboot .........

    Hope this post helped

    Default AW: How change the Keyboard layout Language in BT5 KDE

    Is there a solution for live-cd sessions beside running the installer (and aborting it after language selection)? Something we can put in a script or a way changing files on the cd?
