locale dependency for package

Postby dlublink » 2009-02-08 16:14


I wrote a .deb file and have would like to require certain locales. Is there a line I can add to my .deb file to require the locale?

I know normally it goes with what the user already installed, but this particular package is a special case.

I must assume, you can do that by modifying the preinstallation script. Make it check for the locale and issue an informative message if the condition is not met. Then instruct it to abort the installation.
