General :: Can't Differentiate System Language From Keyboard Language?

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 there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Language Standardized In Wrong Language

Nov 28, 2010

While installing Ubuntu 10.10 I chose the wrong language for my keyboard. I tried to fix this in keyboard preferences and it seemed to work. The correct one I need is USA (and don't know exactly the difference between USA and USA alternative international). But every time I boot my laptop I get the old language back (Dutch) while USA is above the others in my preferences.

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?

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?

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Randomly Changes Language And Layout?

Feb 23, 2010

I installed open suse 11.2 yesterday stock Education edition DVD.

I changed the keyboard because it was generating garbage instead of english chars. (everything was stock from the CD)

The replacement kb is a newer one (I favor the old kb's).

eventually the language and layout of the keyboard changes - usually to Arabic or some Eastern alphabet.

I was really starting to like open suse, but if this persists it is unusable.

Something is misbehaving - any Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm running the default desktop env - gnome.

I changed the Language and the keyboard to Amharic (normally I use US English). Ever since then I have been unable to log in as the keyboard is typing in Amharic and the original password was created in US English. I also tried << Ctrl+Alt+F1 >> and typed in the login name and password, even Root and the password but no luck.

Ubuntu Servers :: Change Keyboard Language To 10.04.1?

Dec 18, 2010

I'm doing thesis about Open source CMS -programs and I'm using Ubuntu server 10.04.1 for that.

I have used same server edition at school but I have now big problem with changing the keyboard language. Because VMware used the easy install I couldn't change the language during the installation. I have used command sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but I can't select the right language there.

So is there any other way to change the keyboard language to Finnish?

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.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Layout Changing Randomly - GNOME In Slovak Language

Jan 30, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 with default GNOME desktop and i'm facing issues with keyboard layouts, which are changing randomly. Problem is that i have GNOME in Slovak language and therefore has openSUSE set durring installation my keyboard layout to 'Slovak' but i always change it to 'Slovak QWERTY' which suits me better.
Problem is that randomly system adds back to my layouts which are 'Slovak QWERTY' and 'USA' also original 'Slovak' layout which was previously removed.

I must always manually remove this third layout and it's very frustrating. Many times on fresh system boot it's anyway back and so on and on... Where may lie the problem? Why is GNOME not respecting my settings? In Ubuntu i never have these basic issues. Are there on system boot some specific SUSE triggers which are overwriting my configuration?

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.

General :: Japanese Language IME Available In 10.4?

May 14, 2010

I just got used to Ubuntu and was using Easy Peasy. I wanted to upgrade because I was having a few issues with EP on my EeePc 900- I went to 10.4.

I am leaving to go study abroad in Japan in about 10 days and have everything configured except the Japanese language aspect.

I went to System -> Admin -> Language Support and installed the language files, etc. After reboot, they are installed...but there is no language box or any hint at all that I can use it.

There doesn't appear to be a shortcut like ALT + SHIFT in Windows.

In the simplest terms possible (i.e. step by step), how can I be able to type Japanese in Office, Firefox, Evolution, IM, etc.?
