How to set non-US keyboard & language

Taken from the forums (with marginal adjustment):

apt-get update 
apt-get install console-data
apt-get install console-setup
apt-get install console-locales
apt-get install keyboard-configuration

(The instructions in the forums suggest doing an apt-get upgrade, but I'm pretty sure it's not required - just apt-get update).

Then configure each package with dpkg:

dpkg-reconfigure console-data
dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
dpkg-reconfigure console-locales
dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

Then reboot
