check-language-support is a command-line utility in Linux that is used to check the availability of language support on the system. It is part of the language-support-* package in Ubuntu and other Debian-based distributions, and is used to check which languages are supported by the system and which language packages are installed.
To use check-language-support, you can simply run the command followed by the name of the language or languages that you want to check for support.
For example, to check for support for the English and Spanish languages, you can use the following command:
# check-language-support en es
This command will output a list of the language support packages that are available for the English and Spanish languages, as well as which packages are currently installed on the system.
If you encounter the below error while running the command check-language-support :
check-language-support: command not found
you may try installing the below package:
# apt-get install language-selector-common
check-language-support includes several options and arguments that allow you to customize the way it checks for language support. For example, you can use the –all option to check for support for all languages, or the –installed option to only show the language support packages that are currently installed on the system.
