9.7.8 Example for France with Euro sign (ISO-8859-15)

Add the following lines to ~/.bash_profile:

     [email protected]
     export LANG
     [email protected]
     export LC_CTYPE

Configure the keyboard for French "AZERTY" as described in Localizing the keyboard, Section; add French manual pages by installing manpages-fr. The Right-Alt key in the US is called Alt-Gr in Europe. Pressing this together with other keys creates numerous accented and special characters. For example, Alt-Gr+E creates a Euro sign.

Most western European languages can be configured similarly.

See Debian Euro HOWTO for adding support for the new Euro currency and Utiliser et configurer Debian pour le fran�ais for more details in French.
