I come from using Gentoo for more than 2 years, and I just loved it, but I was searching for something different. I have been using some distros and some has leaved a good impression on me and I have expressed that in their respective forums, but Paldo has leaved a better impression, an up2date szstem which is still a small project and does things with such simplicity that I just love it.

I have a question something I have never done in my Linux life, how do I change the localization of the whole system (From initial shell to GNOME, which is set on boot but I dont know how to change) to American (US) layout?

Hi kensai and welcome to paldo

First install the US english locale by installing the corresponding package
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
upkg-add --tag=en_US glibc

To use it as the system default, replace the content of /etc/profile.d/ by
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

To use the US english keyboard layout in the console, set DEFKEYMAP=us in /etc/default/kbd

The per-user keyboard layout in GNOME can be set in Menu System->Preferences->Keyboard. To change it for all users, set XkbLayout in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to "us"
