National language support [HOWTO request]


1 1

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am quite new to Armbian (Debian), but experienced on Fedora (RedHat).


I want to use national language support on my Armbian device [Orange Pi PL+].

In particular Polish (but if this post transforms into guide it will be for others too).


How do I install(?) / enable (?) / rebuild (?) packages (especially GUI) to enable Polish language?

With this, OPi / Armbian would be an "viable" alternative to some "STBs" (2x less price... freedom of installing packages).


Fonts, keyboard (I saw only "Polish-Dvorak" which is not correct, should be "polish-programmers" - with ALT-Gr or Polish-"typewriter" which I guess is not available now), all these stuff.


Is it already build, and I need only to install some packages / change some settings?

Or must I rebuild packages (which ones? how) from source?

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?


advanced a bit,



dpkg-reconfigure locales


still have


in /etc/default/locale.


Corrected to pl_PL.UTF-8, after reboot (ooouuugghh, Win$ method...) desktop seems "more Polish" :P

Commandline too (mc greatest tool Peter Northon ever wrote).


But Firefox still English...
