Yesterday I installed zabbix server and agent on some of my EC2 Instance (running Ubuntu 16.04) Now I want to add the japanese language interface for my zabbix server (because I'm working for a Japanese company and they asked me to do that)

The problem: when I search for available zabbix package on Ubuntu, I couldn't find it. Besides, I tried to install with this command line

apt-get install zabbix-web-japanese
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package zabbix-web-japanese

So I wonder if there is any ways to add japanese language interface.

@Edit: I tried to install some of the older version of japanese language packge from. I found the 3.0.4 version with rpm format. Since rpm format can't be used to install on ubuntu, I had to install alien to convert it to deb. But after executing the command to convert, i got this error

alien -i zabbix-web-japanese-3.0.4-1.amzn1.noarch.rpm
error: zabbix-web-japanese-3.0.4-1.amzn1.noarch.rpm: not an rpm package (or package manifest)
Error executing "LANG=C rpm -qp --queryformat %{NAME} 'zabbix-web-japanese-3.0.4-1.amzn1.noarch.rpm'":  at /usr/share/perl5/Alien/Package.pm line 489.

    That package might only be needed for RHEL - if you try to select the Japanese locale in the frontend, does it not work? – Richlv Jan 24 '17 at 9:14
  • @Richlv Thanks Rich. Finally i found the locale and it worked. I never knew about this before. – The One Jan 25 '17 at 3:20
  • Great, added as an answer so that this does not look like an unsolved issue :) – Richlv Mar 6 '17 at 12:58
