Change Default Language in kUbuntu 8.04 Hardy


It seems the system settings accessible through the kUbuntu GUI does not suffice to change the default system language, or at least it is not as intuitive as it should be. As this is the language used at the login screen and especially in the Konsole, it can be horribly annoying.

You can check your locale setting using

% locale

To fix it the hard way, just edit


to you liking or use


and reboot.
