I like my systems to be all english, except for things like default currency and number/date format.
Using en_DK.UTF-8 as locale usually gives me that exact combination.
However, with my current install (KDE) konsole commands for some reason show up in German? The Konsole menu itself is in english, but commands like nano, ls and sudo, are in German.
The KDE locale screen shows en_DK as the default and below you can see my locale settings are en_DK, and it’s the only locale installed. local-gen is in english but the ls command at the bottom is in German?
thomas@hermes:~$ locale LANG=en_DK.UTF-8 LC_CTYPE="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_NAME="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_DK.UTF-8" LC_ALL= thomas@hermes:~$ sudo locale-gen Generating locales... en_DK.UTF-8... done Generation complete. thomas@hermes:~$ ls -l insgesamt 3300 drwxr-xr-x 1 thomas users
Is there anything specific to Konsole which I need to set?
I know I never installed anything “German” on this machine but maybe there is something lurking in a config file when I copied my home folder?
