    Hi folks,

    I've just installed Debian 4.0 Etch using "The Perfect Setup-Debian 4.0 Etch".

    While the installation I choosed as Language "German" with a "German Keyboard-Layout", but the specail German characters (Umlaute) are not displayed correctly.

    I also installed the "Midnight Commander" (apt-get install mc), but the display is also totally fuc...!

    I don't know what to do. Can anybody help, please ?

    Best regards

    On Debian you easily can add support for additional languages with:
    dpkg-reconfigure locales

    Hi Hans,

    thank you for your help, but the fault was on my side :-( !

    I had forgotten to set my SSH-Client (PuTTY) to UTF-8.
    Therefore I did'nt get the displayed characters correctly !

    Best regards and thanks
