The thing that worries me is that I have Bulgarian
installed 
for GNOME and not for KDE . . .

So, if I want my standalone to 'see' Bulgarian will it
do that 
if I boot up KDE as my window-manager rather than
GNOME.

Unlike Mac OS and Windows which only sport the "one
size fits all" window managers that come out of the
box with them; Linux 
has many options - and, it seems, that Languages are
installed 
as add-ons to the Window managers rather than the
operating 
system Ding-An-Sich.

In theory, it would be entirely feasible to run Linux
with 2 window-managers that use completely different
languages as their main languages:

say, GNOME in Finnish and KDE in Russian (and, let's
face it, 
although the Finns and the Russians live right next
door to 
each other . . .) . . .  :)

my standalone, when it lands on this system will
"throw a bluey"!

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
