Home v6.2 and TimeZone / Locale Change

Post by realjobe » Wed Jun 13, 2007 3:24 pm

Dear Board.

I'm terribly sorry to bother you all with this really lame question but I do not know how to do this..

I'm running Gentoox 6.2 with UI XFCE with autologin as gentoox.
I want to change the locacles to Finnish so that the keyboard layout changes with skands naturally. Also TimeZone must change to GMT+2.

How to do this?
:oops:

Ok.
Change the TimeZone like this.

- login as root and open console
- nano -w /etc/conf.d/clock and change TIMEZONE='Europe/Helsinki' and CLOCK='local' to CLOCK='UTC'
- cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki /etc/localtime
- Reboot and TimeZone is set to GMT+2

Keymaps to FInnish:
- nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf, change Keyboard section XkbLayout' value to 'fi'.
- nano /etc/conf.d/keymaps KEYMAP='fi'
- nano /etc/locale.gen add lines
fi_FI.UTF-8 UTF-8
fi_FI ISO-8859-1
fi_FI@euro ISO-8859-15
- Run locale-gen.

ReBoot and that's it.
