I'm new to Linux. I'm from Bulgaria and need Bulgarian language.

I searched in settings and find nothing. I find files in https://packages.ubuntu.com/hirsute/language-pack-bg, but how to install it on Kubuntu 21.04?

In addition to Van Wilder's answer, it should be mentioned that the Bulgarian keyboard layout is a bit special. To be able to access 3rd and 4th level symbols you need to define a third level key.

  • Install the gnome-tweaks package if it's not installed already.

  • Open Tweaks and navigate to Keyboard & Mouse -> Additional Layout Options -> Key to choose the 3rd level.

  • Check the Right Alt option.

  1. Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Click Region & Language in the sidebar to open the panel.
  4. Click the + button in the Input Sources section, select the language which is associated with the layout, then select a layout and press Add.
