Trouble with non-English installation language on Linux

    For text mode, the LANG variable specifies both the language and output encoding. You should set it to your preferred language and current encoding of your terminal. Usually terminals use UTF-8 mode, so you should do:

     export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

    This will cause the installer to print text in UTF-8 mode.

    If your terminal is not in UTF-8 mode, simply change it, or set the LANG to same encoding as your terminal uses.

    If this also happens in GUI mode, which InstallBuilder are you using? Regular or Qt version? Can you check what happens when running the installer with --mode xwindow:

    $ ./ --mode xwindow

    If this is InstallBuilder for Qt, can you also try:

    $ ./ --mode gtk
