Localisation

Set your Raspberry Pi up to match your regional settings.

Language

NOOBS

To change the language used by NOOBS, you can either press the L key on your keyboard, press the up/down arrows to choose the language you want, and then press Enter; or you can do the same thing using the mouse. NOOBS will remember your selection, and will use the same language again next time.

Alternatively, you can pre-select the language before booting NOOBS for the first time. See here.

Raspbian

If you've installed Raspbian using NOOBS, it should automatically pick up the same language you were using within NOOBS. But if you want to select a different language, or if you've installed Raspbian from a standalone image, use raspi-config.

Keyboard

NOOBS

To change the keyboard layout used by NOOBS, you can either press the 9 key on your keyboard, press the up/down arrows to choose the keyboard you want, and then press Enter; or you can do the same thing using the mouse. Note that changing the language (as described above) may automatically change the keyboard layout as appropriate too. NOOBS will remember your selection and use the same keyboard layout again next time.

Alternatively, you can pre-select the keyboard before booting NOOBS for the first time. See here.

Raspbian

If you've installed Raspbian using NOOBS, it should automatically pick up the same keyboard you were using in NOOBS. But if you want to select a different keyboard, or if you've installed Raspbian from a standalone image, use raspi-config.

Timezone

NOOBS

No part of NOOBS uses the time; consequently there is no option for changing the timezone.

Raspbian

Once again, this is something you can change using the raspi-config tool.
