After a new install of Linux Mint Debian Edition I have some words unlocalized to my native language: most in Czech, some words in English. Whenever I've installed Ubuntu/Linux Mint this always happened, but then I just clicked on 'language center' and it automaticilly asked me if I want to install the remaining language packages. (this is a an ubuntu screen, but it was almost the same thing on Linux Mint) However, on the new Linux Mint Debian Edition (with MATE) I cannot find that language support window. It's not in the Control Panel. How can I install the remaining packages? The easiest thing to do would be to open Synaptic, the package manager ( sudo synaptic) and search for 'Czech'.
How to change the language of your Debian system. You may also need to reconfigure your locales. (for german 'de'utschland): apt-get install kde-l10n-de. Install debconf (i.e. Run apt-get update then apt-get install debconf, as root) Run dpkg-reconfigure locales as root; The Hard Way. Edit /etc/locale.gen as root. If /etc/locale.gen does not exist, create it. An example /etc/locale.gen is below. Run /usr/sbin/locale-gen as root; A sample /etc/locale.gen # This file lists locales that you wish to have built.

You can do the same thing from the command line (which is easier to post here) as follows: sudo apt-cache search czech The last command returns a list of 59 packages on my system, the ones you need are: task-czech - Czech environment task-czech-desktop - Czech desktop Thise should fix your desktop.
