FIXED !!

1. Open the file : /etc/X11/xorg.conf
2. go to the following section :

Option  "XkbLayout"  "us"    ## KEYBOARD_MAP!

add the language you want , ( in my case was the greek language )

Option  "XkbLayout"  "us,el"    ## KEYBOARD_MAP!

3. add to xfce panel the : keyboard layout switcher

4. restart the pc

you will change the language from the panel.

You didn't originally specify keyboard layout and I wasnt' around to ask.  That's the way I get an Israeli Hebrew keyboard layout as well Smiley

Everything else is pretty well built in:  fonts should be there by default, language packs are in the repository for Firefox and Thunderbird, and aspell dictionaries are there as well.  You will need to go upstream if you want a Greek language pack for Seamonkey or OpenOffice as we don't have anyone packaging those... yet.

Anyway, glad you got it working.  Please add [SOLVED] to the original subject line so those of us who try and help now and again know  Grin
