Posted on 2011-10-15

I got a computer with Limpus Linux installed from Acer .  When I booted it the first time my mouse was not working properly and I inadvertently got an oriental language installed.  Any Ideas what I do to change it to English USA.  I'm having trouble reading much of the language.  How about that for a predicament.

    Reinstall the computer with the restore CD (or USB stick made from the restore CD on another computer). I suppose you haven't been able to use the computer so there are any important data on it?

    Or you can check language symbols (assuming the english libraries etc are installed)..
    the selection is done using LC_* environment variables:
    an export: LC_CTYPE="C"
    should turn your system in english...
    for commands start from that shell. (If so then you need to configure this in the system environment variables.

    Mostly found in a file named /etc/profile or a script sourced from that script.
    (. ) command.
