Code: Select all

locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
LANG=cinnamon.desktop
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_NUMERIC="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_TIME="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_COLLATE="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_MONETARY="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_MESSAGES="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_PAPER="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_NAME="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_ADDRESS="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_TELEPHONE="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_MEASUREMENT="cinnamon.desktop"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="cinnamon.desktop"

Try this:
Open the menu and start "Languages".
Set your language and region.
Then click "Apply system-wide."

You may need to reboot afterwards.

I don't have "Languages" in the menu.

Sorry, I am on a wrong forum. I have LMDE 2.

I have LMDE too, though MATE instead of Cinnamon.

Try typing in "locale" in the menu search bar.
