Thanks, I was aware that German error messages wouldn't be too helpful
for many of the readers here, but I wasn't aware of how to change this
(I am using Linux for roughly a year now, so I'd say I'm still almost
a newbie).

yes, I did that some time ago...

yes, I did this because I don't know how to get a "proper package" for
mapnik, thank you. Maybe not the best way, but as soon as I learned
more about package management, I'll probably change this.
