# Revision history [back]

Here are some instructions we used last fall during a Sage workshop in a French speaking country; they might be outdated since then ...

Switch to the text console:

CTRL-ALT-F1


login: sage


Switch to user gui (might not be needed anymore)::

sudo su - gui


Edit the xinitrc file::

nano .xinitrc


Add the following line, just before the last line that starts google-chrome::

setxkbmap fr


Reboot:

reboot
