OPSI .vmdk for non German speaking users

Beitragvon mirkt » 13 Feb 2014, 14:15

Hello,

Today I needed a temporary OPSI server for testing so I have downloaded a version of the opsi-depotserver as a VMWare machine and noticed some difficulties for users who do not speak German..

During the first boot I have chosen „en“, nevertheless 'locale' showed:
LANG="de_DE.UTF-8"
and xkbmap was "de".

Bild

Quick fix for others:
$ setxkbmap us
$ yourfavoriteeditor /etc/default/keyboard
change from:
XKBLAYOUT="de"
to
XKBLAYOUT="us"

$ yourfavoriteeditor ~/.pam_environment
change to:
LANGUAGE=en_US:en
LANG=en_US.UTF-8

As far as I understand, a new version is coming soon so maybe this notice will be helpful.. :)

Good luck

Hello mirkt,

thank you for this report!

I opened an internal ticket and we will probably have this fixed with the release of the new vm.


With kind regards

Niko
