Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I can't seem to find info on installing a Swedish language package on my machine. The language is not listed on their website and the hits on Google I got led nowhere (or, rather, to the said page).

Where can I ask such a question (within the realm of Stack Exchange)?

Super User seems to be the place for this question. If it's well written. – George Stocker Sep 27 '12 at 14:20
@GeorgeStocker Would you say that the formulation above constitutes a well written question? Also, the remark I made as a comment to the other reply - isn't it a bit too simple question to be posted there? – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:24
Use good grammar, punctuation, and show what you've tried. They can't expect much more than that. – George Stocker Sep 27 '12 at 14:29

Sounds like it would be appropriate on Super User.

Hmmm... I'm not arguing you but isn't that a question a bit too basic to be posted on Super User? I'd rather not get -10000 reputation because of such a thing. :) – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:23
If it's too basic, don't ask it. But then I can think of no other site where it would be appropriate. Barring a relevant chat room on SU, you're on your own. – Bart Sep 27 '12 at 14:25
There's much, much worse there, believe me. A question about installing a language in a major web browser is very much on topic for Super User. In fact, that's really the only place in the network for such a question. – Al E. Sep 27 '12 at 14:25
@Chamster: Please keep in mind that other people might share your problem. They might be very happy to find a proper answer on Super User (after you've posted your question). And, yes, your question will be welcome on Super User :) – Oliver Salzburg Sep 27 '12 at 14:28
@Bart My point was that I can't tell if it's too basic. I don't want to cause a storm of rage like the last time when a few contributors misunderstood my point. That's why I'm asking first. – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:29
@AlEverett & OliverSalzburg Got it. Thank you for a straightforward reply. Will check the answer green as soon as SO'll let me! – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:31
@Chamster Sure. No problem. That's why I said "if". And perhaps probing in an on-topic chat room might not be a bad idea anyway. I can't judge the question though. I'm not active on the site. – Bart Sep 27 '12 at 14:32
@Bart Chat room? What do you mean? MSN? – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:34
Every Stack Exchange site has an associated chat room. Check the links at the top of the page. – Al E. Sep 27 '12 at 14:35
No, each site has their own chat rooms. If you have sufficient rep (20 I think) you can participate. The link named "chat" at the very top of the page leads to the chat rooms for that particular SO/SE – Bart Sep 27 '12 at 14:35
Sight... I thought Meta was a common forum for all the sections... And chat, I don't think I've seen it... Might be a bit hard to find the right chat room for every uncertainty one has. But still - a good tip. – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:37
