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.
