Perhaps I’ve not written it down. Just some notes how to install VA 8.52 under Ubuntu and get a German locale and make it work at all.
I just installed the Ubuntu 12.04.1/64Bit from disc and with that system you will not even be able to start the installer of VA, because its a 32bit application.
Therefore you have to install the 32 support libraries via:
sudo apt-get ia32-libs
which install quite a lot of stuff to your system.
Then I wanted to change the locale to the actual german one via:
sudo locale-gen de_DE@euro
and I change the file “/etc/environment” and “/etc/default/locale” (if present) and add/change the LANG entry to:
LANG = “de_DE.ISO8859-15@euro”
Then I did a reboot and I was able to enter german umlauts in VA.
