eurocastellanizar − automatically set a Debian system with spanish and euro support


eurocastellanizar [options] files ...


This manual page documents briefly the eurocastellanizar command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

eurocastellanizar is a program that setups a Debian environment customized for spanish speaking users which live in Europe and thus need also full Euro support.


The programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (’-’). A summary of options are included below. For a complete description, see the Info files.
−h, −−help

−v, −−version

The eurocastellanizar program does not implement a way to revert the changes done to a system. All the modified files (under /etc/) are preserved by making a backup copy with the user-euro-es.bak suffix. If you want to remove the configuration changes this program introduces you will have to replace the files with the backups manually (integrating whatever configuration changes you might have done if the files have changed after the program modified them).

Also, eurocastellanizar will overwrite and old backup copy if you have already generated one. Thus, if you execute it twice, you will lose your original configuration.


Please read the documentation available at The Debian Euro Manual, provided by the euro-support package in Debian. Available for offline reading at /usr/share/doc/euro-support/ and online at There is also a README at /usr/share/doc/user-euro-es/ in your Debian system (currently available only in Spanish) which includes some notes regarding this package. The HOWTO ’Spanish-HOWTO.html’ is provided by the doc-linux-es package in Debian so you might want to install it and read it thoroughly for the issues that cannot be easily automated.
