Language of calendar/days in taskbar is German? [Solved]
« on: October 15, 2016, 04:03:15 pm »
Hi Pepperminters,

Running Peppermint 7 for about a week or so now. (The "losing-Ethernet" connection hasn't occurred anymore, so far).

I suddenly noticed that the language of the day(days) and the calendar are in German. "Sonntag", instead of Sunday. Everything else in in English. Odd: I cannot remember it having been in German the first few times.

- When I start "Language Support" in the Preferences menu, a message pops up, saying "The language support is not installed completely", and it shows "wngerman", "wogerman", "firefox-locale-de", "wswiss", "language-pack-de", "gimp-help-de" and "gimp-help-en".

- The tab  "Language" in "Language Support" shows English as the language for menus and windows. "Deutsch" (German) is right underneath "English" in the list.

- The tab "Regional Formats" in said "Language Support" shows "English (United Kingdom)", while "German" is also in the list of English languages to choose.

- In the list of installed languages, only English is selected.

Although I am fluent in German, I am not German, so how do I change the language of the calendar to English? I do not seem to find how to do it.

Try clicking on Apply System-Wide (both tabs in Language Support) after choosing your preferences, close all windows and log out/in.

Hope this helps!  ;)

GNULINX, slap me around the ears, for I logged out and back in, and the Calendar is now, indeed, in English :P

(Why didn't I think of logging out and back in?)

I am a perfectionist, so, having something in a different language just won't do.

Much obliged, GNULINUX!
