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?

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

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.

I could use any tips on how to get Mongolian language installed:

1) on a PC that already has Edubuntu in English installed

2) during a new installation

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 :: Greek Language Support

Oct 10, 2010

I see 10.10 manages languages like 10.04.

I am English but live in Greece and although "I get by" with Greek, I do not read it very well and certainly do not write it. Consequently, I need to have everything on my PC in English. No problem so far but I do need to enable writing in Greek on occasion as the missus and bairns are Greek and my favourite little translator, GWord, obviously needs it.

I installed Greek language support and this resulted in everything being in Greek and me having to talk the missus through getting it back in English (she has trouble with technical stuff, bless her).

Just enabling translation and/or fonts etc in Language Support has no effect whatsoever.

I just want to press Alt+Shift and type in Greek, Alt+Shift again to be back in English and see my GWord (running under Wine) displaying no gobbledegook!

Debian :: Add Japanese Language Support?

Sep 1, 2010

I've been looking for a way to add Japanese language support to Debian. I need to be able to type and read Japanese for school. I've asked my Linux professor, and he wasn't sure of how to do it... =p

Edit: I've just figured out how to do this. (All you have to do in install a Japanese font). The only problem is I can't seem how to figure out how to type using Romaji and have it convert to Kana automatically, rather than having it have a Japanese keyboard layout. For example, when I type "A", it should show up as ア, and when I enter "KA" it should show up as カ.

OpenSUSE Install :: Multi Language Support - Define The Compose Key In 11.2?

Feb 13, 2010

I have been trying to upgrade (ended up trashing and reinstalling) from 11.1 to 11.2. I selected French language with UK keyboard. This option seems in the end to just default to the French keyboad. Reinstalled with UK lang and UK keyboad which is acceptable to me but I then find a big problem. How do I set the compose key so I can enter accented characters etc. (� � � ...) Prior to 11.2 this was some with SAX but SAX support for keyboards appears to have been removed and I believe should be provided by KDE, Gnome, etc.

Does anyone know how to define the compose key in 11.2? I have searched google and the suse forums but found nothing other than something in German that I did not understand. While I could buy a French or perhaps better a Swiss keyboard for the tower this is not a real option for the laptop and on-screen keyboards are useless.

Fedora Installation :: Multiple Language Support (including To Enter Complex Characters)

Jun 10, 2009

I quit using Fedora when FC4 came out, but I decided to switch back now that F11 has come out. I'm liking everything so far, though it is different from what I became used to (Ubuntu). My main question so far has to do with language support, and I cannot seem to find an answer anywhere for this. I need to have language support for several languages (including support to enter complex characters) for all applications for which it they are available. How do I install all the language files at once for, say, Korean, rather than installing each library one by one?

Ubuntu :: Change Language Of Home , User , Documents Folder Name?

May 11, 2010

When I installed Lucid and first switched language/locale settings, a window popped up asking me if I wanted to change the name of the Documents, Music, Video etc folders into the new language.

Originally I was worried that this might be some irreversible operation and said no and ticked the don't ask me again box.

It seems though that this is just a cosmetic operation and I'd quite like to use this function now. Does anyone know where I can change the setting to accomplish this?
