All root notices and software in spanish

Post by russ553 »

I installed the Spanish language support which did not work for what i wanted so I uninstalled it.

Now all of my root notices, update manager, synaptic and other things are in Spanish.

I did a search for "spanish" and deleted all files I found there.

How do I get rid of the Spanish?

Thanks.

Did you check preferences/language support :?:

You can also try reinstalling that package then apt-get purge so no configuration files remain.

Reinstalled Spanish then did apt-get purge and still have the same problem. Terminal is in Spanish and Update Manager gives me Spanish.

No difference.

yep, only thing in there is English, United States and English. No other languages installed. Set it for system wide 3 times. No difference.

russell@russell-TECRA-A8:~$ env|grep -i lang
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
MDM_LANG=en_US.UTF-8
russell@russell-TECRA-A8:~$ sudo env|grep -i lang
[sudo] password for russell:
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=en_US:es_MX:en
russell@russell-TECRA-A8:~$

Aha! Something to do with the root portion I would believe.

Now, how do I get rid of that?

I don't know where mint sources the language. I know how it's done in gentoo, but it's done differently with mint so I'm at a loss.

Is there a .bashrc file in /root :?: That's the only other place I can think of besides /etc/profile or /etc/bash.bashrc which neither is setting the language.

Thanks for trying. I have no idea. I just did another file search for anything that has es in it and deleted a bunch of stuff but still have spanish in my terminal.
