HELP: MX System locales

In case the user neglected to select system locale during installation or from the Login menu, missed setting it up on the Live session, or just needs to make a change, this little app provides an easy way to carry out that operation from the Start menu.

To use a terminal instead, enter the command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

You will see list with all the locales that you can scroll through using the up and down arrow keys.

  • Enable and disable what you want (or don’t want), using the space bar to make the asterisk in front of the locale appear (or disappear).
  • When done, click OK to advance to the next screen.
  • Use arrows to select the default language you want to use. For US users, for instance, that would typically be en_US.UTF-8.
  • Click OK to save and exit.
