hello all there, yesterday I skipped from Debian-Testing to Garuda.
Accidentally chose german @ install, wanted English really.
But now as I go change it in the setting - regional, it would have
no effect. No matter what I add and delete it boots with german
How could I break this wrong setting?
( Using Plasma-KDE, all updates done )
I believe this is the relevant article: Locale - ArchWiki
If you open this file:
sudo micro /etc/locale.conf
LANG= value decides what language your system will use. Mine looks like this:
Another way you can set this value (instead of opening
locale.conf and editing it) is run:
sudo localectl set-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8
I hope that helps, welcome to the community @ycom1.
thank you very much. I did this, rebooted, no effect.
my default locale looks like this:
also adding this:
if I want to reinstall perl-encode-locale, I get the message
that the package database is corrupted ....
Do you want to keep all of those values in German?
See here: My system is still using wrong language
In your case, since you are on KDE you may need to delete the local file at
~/.config/plasma-localerc which may be overwriting your settings.
thanks that solved the problem, a few things are still german, but mainly all english now
All these other values are still in German:
If you change them to
en_US.UTF-8, that might help.
will do thanks again : - )
