Ubuntu :: Language Support - Each User Can Select Their System Language When Login?

Nov 1, 2010

One computer .... three users .... three languages. How do you make that happen? User A speaks English and is happy with English. No problem. User B needs to use Chinese and would like the full system in Chinese. User C needs to use Thai and Chinese. They would prefer their menus to be in Thai and can use iBus for Chinese entry. How do you set up the system so that each user can select their system language when they login?

Apr 14, 2010

i recently got a french msi wind U100x running on linux suse enterprise 10 sp1. (i am french and wanted a light netbook with french keyboard)i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping.because i am more used to english for settings, i set the main language to english, but it seems that it automatically reconfigures my keyboard mapping to english as well, so that azerty becomes qwerty.i reset it back to french, so now my keyboard is french, but so is the system.is there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?

Ubuntu :: Can No Longer Switch OS Language

May 22, 2010

All the installed languages are listed in the pull-down but, except for English. they are all grayed out. I can't switch to anything. I even tried uninstalling the English, leaving only Korean, and rebooted, but it still rebooted to English (and still listed Korean as the only language available). It said the system was incomplete and I needed to download some software, so I did, but that just resulted in English returning to the menu, which was selected and everything else still grayed out.

When it freeze up, it doesn't give error anyway on next start.I suspect the problem is doing with Web browser, If one user using browser and switch to other user without logoff, it will freeze up when other using login.It seem working on following contion.

1. It seems ok when all users quit using browser,and it doesn't matter how many times you switch between users.

2. delete all other users and operate as only one user

Now some of our software that was setup to work with i386 is not cooperating. Is there a way to switch from the i686 kernel to i386 without reinstalling the system?

Fedora Installation :: Changing System Language After Fresh Fedora 12 Installation

Dec 31, 2009

after a fresh installation of the English version (Live CD installer) of Fedora 12 (Gnome) I would like to set the default system language to German.But I would like to have the whole Gnome desktop in German. What is the recommended place in Fedora to set this? /etc/profile or are there any Fedora specific configuration files for this purpose?Btw, the GDM login screen doesn't provide the German language as a choice. Do I miss a package? I already browsed the DE packages for localization packages I did not install but it seems there is no one missing.

Ubuntu :: Support For Language While Keeping English As Language Used To Display Desktop?

Mar 5, 2011

I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).

I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?

Ubuntu :: Language Support System In English / Foreign Locale

May 3, 2010

I only want spellchecking, calendar and currency to be typical for Poland (this is where I currently live), Ubuntu itself (interface, applications, manuals) should be in English - I don't understand Polish well enough.In 9.10 I used to check Polish spellchecking (translations were checked for install automatically but you couldn't tell unless you chose another language and then Polish again) and uncheck the translations. It allowed for setting locale (calendar/currency) to Polish and also keep the spellchecking. Now it's buggy: I can do a fresh install of Ubuntu but can't set Polish spellchecking, calendar (it starts from Monday), currency (it's PLN/zł) and keep the system itself in English. What I do wrong?

1. Fresh install
2. System -> Administration -> Language Support
3. Language -> Install / Remove Languages
4. Find Polish and select ONLY: Spellchecking and writing aids
5. Text -> Display numbers, dates and currency amounts in: Polish

Confirm, reboot and... Bump! I've got Polish translations in several places, e.g.:If I upgrade any software, it is in Polish. Firefox (or Namoroka) locale changes to "pl,en" and its plug-ins are in Polish by default.
After I uninstall Polish translations (and leave spellchecking and writing aids as it was) there's a problem with locale (Polish locale is removed along with translations), besides, system doesn't actually change back to English and newly installed applications either crash with errors or install in Polish.

Nov 28, 2010

General :: Ubuntu - Rename Home Folder Structure To System Language?

Oct 14, 2010

I have installed the Ubuntu distro first in Portuguese. Then, I decided I wanted the English language. I would like that the default folders like "Desktop" and "Documents" were renamed to this names, instead of staying in their Portuguese equivalent.

I can not guarantee this, but I am almost certain I did successfully convert the folder names from Portuguese to English on a previous install when I decided to change the language. So, I suppose this is possible.

Ubuntu :: Switch Themes In HP Mini's System?

Oct 15, 2010

I readily admit I know next to nothing about Linux - so I am pleading mercy here.

My HP Mini 1000 had to be factory reset and that means no more Windows XP on the machine until I can figure out how to install it via USB flash. The machine comes with, from what I can figure out, a modified version of ubuntu.

What I wanted to do was to change away from this iphone-like default GUI but I cannot find any menu options to change the theme (System > Preferences > Theme) There is nothing like that anywhere on the computer as far as I can tell. Nothing. The OS help file even says to go to these menus, but they do not exist.

Does anyone have any knowledge that may be helpful here? Am I going to have to install a completely fresh OS? Surely there is a way to switch themes...

Ubuntu :: Switch To Running Program That's Not Showing Up In System Tray?

Jan 3, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and I'm running Skype 2.1 (Beta). Whenever I "x" out of the Skype program, from what I can tell it's minimizing the Skype program and not actually terminating the thread (just as it does in Windows), however when I "x" out of Skype the icon is not showing up in the system tray (but it does in Windows). So one would think that it's not running, however if I try to re-launch Skype I get an error message stating: Another Skype Instance May Exist.

I confirm this by going to System > Administration > System Monitor and sure enough, Skype is running. So if I "x" out of the program, how do I switch back to it because it's not showing up in the system tray? One last thing : Alt+Tab does not work. It will list the other programs running, but not Skype, despite the fact that it is running.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Half Is In English And Half In Another Language After Upgrading To 10.04

May 27, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and so far I have those problems:

1. Before, everything in my system was in English. Now, half is in English, half in another language (PCManFM, some menus etc). I tried setting up Language Support but it changes nothing.

2. Cursor themes work only when hovering the mouse over "X" buttons in the right top corner of the window. As soon as I move the mouse somewhere else, it goes back to default cursor theme, even though I tried selecting 5 different themes - same result.

4. Hibernation don't work anymore. s2disk saves image to disk and then it resumes it but computer stops on text message along the lines of "Resume completed successfully".

5. Changing volume with keyboard shotcuts no longer works.

6. Smplayer does not display picture anymore when playing movies. The view is just empty. I can only hear the soundtrack. It is using XV filter.

7. PCmanFM that used to worked flawlessly, now after going into 1 or 2 subdirectories stops reacting to clicks on file/folder list. Need to open new instance to be able to do anything and this again would become unusable after visiting 1-2 folders.
